05 Jun Keyzo wins real Living Wage ‘Industry Champion’ Award
- We were awarded a prestigious prize for our commitment to the real Living Wage at the annual Living Wage Champion Awards
- We were given an accolade for the Industry Champion Award because of our commitment to paying the voluntary rate and promoting the Living Wage in our industry and supply chain, leading more employers to pay the real Living Wage.
- We are committed to paying the real Living Wage rate to all employers and promoting the voluntary rate ever since 2018.
At tonight’s annual Living Wage Champion Awards we were recognised for our commitment to paying the voluntary rate and promoting the Living Wage in our industry and supply chain, leading more employers to pay the real Living Wage.
We were awarded the “Industry Champion Award” for our dedication to promoting the voluntary rate.
Shane Spencer, Managing Director, Keyzo, said: “We’re very proud to have been given this award and to pay the real Living Wage. Paying the real Living Wage is simply the right thing to do and, as a notable employer in the region, we really hope that other local employers follow our lead.”
Therisa Thompson, HR Manager, Keyzo, said: “Being a Living Wage Employer shows our commitment to be an ethical business and a responsible employer and supports our drive to becoming an employer of choice. We were keen to be a part of the Living Wage in Tech Leadership Group as we want to lead the way, shoulder to shoulder with other responsible companies within the Tech industry.”
The real Living Wage is currently £9.00 across the UK and £10.55 in London. Unlike the government’s minimum wage or so-called Living Wage, it’s independently calculated based on the cost of living. There are currently 5,000 Living Wage employers that pay the real Living Wage rate including Keyzo.
Katherine Chapman, Director of the Living Wage Foundation, said: “The last year has been particularly successful for the Living Wage Foundation as we’ve seen through the 5,000th Living Wage Accreditation. Our awards are an opportunity to recognise the fantastic businesses who continue to recognise the importance of a wage that truly covers the cost of living, and the value this provides for workers and their families, as well as businesses.
The annual Living Wage Champion Awards celebrate notable employers that pay the Living Wage. The awards were hosted by Martin Lewis at Guildhall, London and sponsored by Aviva, Heathrow and City of London.
