Facilicom UK has been shortlisted by the Living Wage Foundation for the Living Wage Champion Awards 2016, in recognition of the company’s long-term commitment to employee wellbeing and paying a fair wage.
The awards recognise Living Wage employers that have made great contributions to communities and industries by implementing and celebrating the Living Wage. Facilicom, a contract cleaning and soft services provider, is a founding member of the Living Wage Service Provider Recognition Scheme and part of the Service Providers Leadership Group. It was one of the first three national contract cleaning providers to sign up to the scheme.
Facilicom UK managing director, Jan-Hein Hemke, said:
“We are proud to be Living Wage Service providers and work closely with our clients to encourage them to pay the Living Wage. We firmly believe in the Living Wage because it is real people being affected by decisions about pay, not just numbers on a balance sheet. People who are willing to work hard for their wages should be rewarded sufficiently to be able to live and enjoy life.”
Living Wage Foundation director, Katherine Chapman said:
“I would like to offer huge congratulations to Facilicom on being shortlisted for the Living Wage Champion Awards. The commitment of Living Wage employers like Facilicom to responsible pay makes a life changing difference to families and communities across the UK. We look forward to celebrating this even more when announcing the winners of the regional awards during Living Wage Week which will begin on 31 October.”
The Living Wage Foundation offers a recognition mark for employers that commit to paying the Living Wage. There are now over 2,700 accredited employers.
