ChemTech Consultancy Ltd are pleased to announce that we are now fully accredited as a Living Wage Employer. ChemTech Consultancy began as a small, family run business, and as such showed a strong commitment to staff welfare. We are proud to have retained this commitment as we have expanded, and have been recognised by the Living Wage Foundation for our efforts.
The Living Wage is an hourly rate set independently and will be updated annually. The Living Wage is calculated according to the basic cost of living using the ‘Minimum Income Standard’ for Scotland – a standard agreed by the public regarding what people need to make ends meet. The implementation of the Living Wage standard means that everyone working at ChemTech Consultancy Ltd will receive a minimum hourly rate which significantly exceeds the National Minimum Wage.
The Living Wage is a voluntary commitment that employers can work towards and opt into. We have chosen to become a Living Wage Employer because we believe in the values the Living Wage represents. Our staff are central to our organisation, consistently exhibiting the ChemTech Consultancy values of customer service, personal quality and engagement. We believe therefore that they deserve to be rewarded for their hard work, and by paying an appropriate wage, we ensure our clients continue to receive excellent service from employees who know they are valued by the firm.
