Tatry Group is a proud Recognised Living Wage Service Provider, and proud advocates of the Living Wage Foundation.
Here are our top 5 reasons to pay the Voluntary Living Wage.
1) BETTER PERFORMANCE
An independent study found more than 80% of London Living Wage employers believe paying the Living Wage had improved their staff’s quality of work. We have definitely seen this here at Tatry Group. Paying our staff better means they take extra pride in their roles.
2) HAPPIER STAFF WITH A HIGHER SENSE OF MORALE
Living Wage staff are happier and more motivated, because earning more means they do not have to work additional hours.
This positive impact on their work-life balance, means there is generally a higher sense of morale at work. A number of our cleaners believe morale is high at work due to feeling like their pay rate reflects how much themselves and their work is appreciated.
3) REDUCED ABSENTEEISM
The same study found absenteeism fell by around 25% in Living Wage employees.
4) REDUCED STAFF TURNOVER
Two thirds of Living Wage employers found paying the Living Wage reduced staff turnover. Reduced staff turnover means you have a regular set of cleaners who get to know your site properly. This results in a better service.
5) PAYING THE VOLUNTARY LIVING WAGE IS THE RIGHT THING TO DO
Unlike the government’s National Living Wage, the Voluntary Living Wage is calculated based on the minimum amount needed to enjoy a decent life. Therefore, paying it and promoting its benefits goes further to make sure that everyone in society can enjoy a more comfortable life.
At Tatry Group we believe that everyone should have the right to a good standard of living, which is why we continue to promote and champion the Living Wage and the Living Wage Foundation.
