Living Wage Business Accreditation For twentysix

twentysix are proud to announce we have recently been accredited as a Living Wage Employer.

The Living Wage is recognised as a sign of good practice in employment and aims to deliver a fair deal for employees, ensuring they are paid the basic cost of living in the UK, this is separate to the minimum wage, which is a lower benchmark for hourly pay.

  • An hourly rate set independently and updated annually
  • The Living Wage is calculated according to the basic cost of living in the UK
  • The current UK Living Wage is £7.85 an hour
  • The current London Living Wage is £9.15 an hour
  • Employers choose to pay the Living Wage on a voluntary basis
  • The Living Wage enjoys cross party support, with public backing from the Prime Minister and the Leader of the Opposition
  • Paying the Living Wage is good for business, good for the individual and good for society
