Celebrating Living Wage Week

6 -12 November 2023

Living Wage Week is the annual celebration of the Living Wage movement and with energy and food costs still high, paying the real Living Wage has never been more important.

This year’s theme celebrates the movement of employers who are committed to the Living Wage and decent work to ensure staff always have decent work and can always live a dignified life.

SJOG was accredited as a Living Wage Employer in February 2021, making the commitment to pay its employees more than the minimum wage.   The real Living Wage is the only rate calculated according to the costs of living. It provides a voluntary benchmark for employers that wish to ensure their staff earn a wage they can live on, not just the government minimum.

The new 2023-24 real Living Wage rates were announced on the 24th October as £12 across the UK, £13.15 in London. Find out more here.

SJOG colleagues are fantastic and it’s great to make the commitment to paying our colleagues a Real Living Wage.
