Incentive FM Group, the leading independent facilities management company, has been accredited as a Living Wage Provider, formalising the company’s ongoing commitment to paying the employees that work within its central team, the National Living Wage as a minimum. Incentive FM Group will also be providing a Living Wage option for all existing clients to consider for contract staff and also for all new business tenders.
We have over 2000 staff across the business and we believe that every one of them deserves to receive a salary that reflects the real cost of living in the UK.
Martin Reed, Incentive FM Group Managing Director
The award of the title of Recognised Service Provider by the Living Wage Foundation confirms that the Incentive FM Group meets the standards of good practice set by Citizens UK, an independent body which set up the Living Wage in 2001. The Living Wage is calculated by the GLA in London and the Centre for Research in Social Policy (CRSP), against the basic cost of living in the UK. Currently it is £9.15 in London and £7.85 in the rest of the country.
Martin Reed, Managing Director, Incentive FM Group, commented: “We are very pleased to be recognised by the Living Wage Foundation for showing leadership on this issue. We have over 2000 staff across the business and we believe that every one of them deserves to receive a salary that reflects the real cost of living in the UK. We recognise there are challenges for our clients on this journey but we are working closely with them to help identify efficient solutions.”
Incentive FM Group is now listed on the Living Wage website livingwage.org.uk as a Recognised Service Provider. The Group has also pledged to raise the Living Wage paid to its staff in line with any increase announced by the GLA/CRSP, within six months of such an announcement.
