GEZE UK – a Living Wage company

GEZE UK is delighted to announce that the company has been accredited as a Living Wage Employer.

The real Living Wage is the only UK wage rate based on the cost of living. It is voluntarily paid by over 14,000 UK businesses who believe their staff deserve a wage which meets everyday needs.

To achieve the accreditation GEZE UK had to confirm that the company pays the real Living Wage to all directly employed staff and have a plan in place to pay all contractors a Living wage – both of which the company has done.

Paying the real Living Wage is not only a benefit to staff but to the company too – it improves the employer brand and boosts staff productivity and motivation at work. It also helps employers to remain competitive, retain existing staff and attract new staff.

Rachel Boxall, Finance Director of GEZE UK, said: “We decided to go for the Living Wage accreditation as we think it is an excellent way to demonstrate our commitment to being a responsible employer. By paying the real Living Wage (as opposed to the national living wage set by Government) we are voluntarily taking a stand to ensure employees can earn a wage which is enough to live on.

“There is also growing evidence of the business benefits of becoming a Living Wage employer. This is demonstrated by the number of well-known and diverse companies already accredited such as Liverpool FC, Aviva, Oxfam and Ikea.”

Andrew Gordon, Programme Officer, Living Wage Foundation added: “We are delighted to welcome GEZE UK as an accredited member of the foundation. Basic fairness is at the heart of what the Living Wage campaign is trying to achieve and why great businesses and organisations chose to go further than the government minimum.”
