Updates from the Living Wage Foundation


 The Living Wage Foundation is pleased to announce that Mitie has become a Recognised Service Provider.

The Living Wage commitment will see Mitie offer a Living Wage option for each and every request for tender. This will mean that even more organisations can consider paying all of their contracted staff a wage that meets the cost of living & learn about the benefits at the point of tender.  Recognised Service Providers also commit to pay the real Living Wage to all staff working for them.

The London Living Wage is currently £10.75 per hour and covers all boroughs in Greater London. The UK Living Wage for outside of London is currently £9.30 per hour. These figures are set annually by the Resolution Foundation.

The Living Wage Foundation recognises and celebrates the leadership shown by employers across the UK. Currently almost 6000 employers commit to paying all of their directly employed and contracted staff the real Living Wage as part of our accredited employer network. Over 100 Recognised Service Providers work with us to offer Living Wage options for contracted staff, ensuring a real Living Wage is always possible when outsourcing services.

Recognised Service Providers are highlighting the benefits of the Living Wage at every possible opportunity.

Living Wage Foundation Director, Katherine Chapman, said: “The benefits the Living Wage brings to staff and business are clear. I welcome the leadership shown by Mitie on this important issue.”
