The Real Living Wage

THE REAL LIVING WAGE:

Good for business; Good for employees

Workshop on 17th July

Organised by Cambridge City Council

 

From 1pm to 2pm at the Conference Room at Allia Future Business Centre, Kings Hedges Road, Cambridge CB4 2HY

 

Free lunch and refreshments to be provided

 

Cambridge City Council has been working with employers across Cambridge to develop a movement for fair pay. We are offering Cambridge businesses, such as those based at the Future Business Centre, the chance to find the answers to questions such as "How can the Real Living Wage benefit our organisation?" and "What are the steps towards LivingWage accreditation?" There will be plenty of opportunity to ask questions following presentations by:

 

Emma Kosmin, Programme Manager, from the Living Wage Foundation- Will share the history of the Real Living Wage movement and how to achieve Real Living Wage accreditation.

 

Duncan Catchpole, Proprietor, The Cambridge Organic Food Company-Will share his experience of being an accredited Living Wage employer, how it fits into the ethics of his business and will introduce his Cambridge Sustainable Food Hub Project.

 

Cambridge City Council is proud to have been an accredited Real Living Wage Employer since 2014. The Real Living Wage better reflects the costs of living, and is higher than the government's national living wage, which is based on a percentage of median income.
