At ETZ Ltd, we’re proud to take a leading role in the campaign for fairer pay. As an organisation focused on economic development and supporting sustainable growth, championing the campaign for real Living Wages is important to us.
The real Living Wage, as set by the Living Wage Foundation, is an independently calculated rate that ensures workers can meet the cost of living. It’s higher than the Government’s national living wage, which is based on a percentage of median earnings rather than actual living costs.
The real Living Wage is voluntarily paid by numerous companies across the UK, including Nationwide. We’ve been an accredited Living Wage Employer as of 2022, paying the real Living Wage to not only all our permanent employees but also encouraging our third-party suppliers to pay a minimum of a real living wage and become accredited Living Wage Employers.
