Their Living Wage commitment will see everyone working at Heritage Healthcare Tandridge, regardless of whether they are direct employees or third-party contracted staff; receive a minimum hourly wage of £8.75 in the UK or £10.20 in London. Both rates are significantly higher than the statutory minimum for over 25s of £7.50 per hour introduced in April 2017.
The real Living Wage is an hourly rate set independently and updated annually. The Living Wage is calculated according to the real costs of living.
“We are pleased to announce, that we have joined the Living Wage movement and are now an accredited London Living Wage Employer,” said Heritage Healthcare Tandridge’s Managing Director Tatiana Baturova. “We strongly believe, that every member of staff in our organisation deserves a London Living Wage because a fair day’s work deserves a fair day’s pay.”
Employers choose to pay the real Living Wage on a voluntary basis. The Living Wage enjoys cross-party political support.
Katherine Chapman, Director, Living Wage Foundation said: “We welcome Heritage Healthcare Tandridge to the Living Wage movement as an accredited employer.
Responsible businesses across the UK are voluntarily signing up to pay the real Living Wage now. The real Living Wage rate is annually calculated to reflect the real costs of living.”
We are a movement of over 3700 UK employers who together want to go further than the government minimum to make sure all their staff earn enough to live on. We have lots of small businesses as well as big household names like; IKEA, Aviva, Chelsea and Everton Football Clubs and many more.”
