Living Wage Employers
A Living Wage Employer pays all direct and contract staff the living wage rate for their region. Paying a living wage is one way employers can play a role in reducing poverty by helping to meet the basic needs of their employees. Everyone in the community will benefit:
- Employers: higher employee retention and lower absenteeism, as well as cost savings for staff hiring and training.
- Employees: are more aware of the overall value of their compensation, which builds loyalty and productivity.
