Organisations that pay the Living Wage have reported significant improvements in quality of work, reductions in staff absence and turnover, and a stronger corporate reputation.
Stats show that there are over 3500 accredited employers across the UK, going much further than the government minimum and paying all staff the real living wage for the real cost of living.
And as we mark Living Wage Week, we’re proud to show our support as a Living Wage employer. DCS are a recognised service provider in the Living Wage scheme, ensuring our employees earn a wage that is enough to live on. A Living Wage supports the ‘Passion Attitude Knowledge and Sustainability’ business approach that we instill within each DCS employee. A fair, sustainable wage is vital for retention of a high calibre individual.
By implementing the Living Wage Foundation’s recommended rates of pay we are able to combat the vicious cycle of high levels of staff turnover and absenteeism commonly associated with the cleaning industry. Furthermore this relatively marginal increase in remuneration has been demonstrated to improve efficiency, increase quality standards and strengthen productivity.
