We are delighted and proud that Ashdown Phillips & Partners has been recognised for our commitment to the Living Wage as a Recognised Service Provider. Our Recognised Service Provider status aligns with our #APPSustainabilityPledge and is part of our core values as a responsible business.
We believe in paying a decent wage to our staff, who carry out vital work for many organisations, and therefore always provide a Living Wage costed bid to all our clients. This gives them the chance to decide if the Living Wage is right for their organisation. We also pay the Living Wage to all staff in our head office.
The Real Living Wage is an independently calculated, voluntary rate of pay that is based on the cost of living. It is higher than the government’s minimum and thousands of companies choose to pay these rates to their staff. The UK rate is currently £9.50, with a higher rate of £10.85 in London, reflecting the higher cost of living in the capital.
As a Recognised Service Provider, Ashdown Phillips and Partners champions the Living Wage one contract at a time.
