Accentuate Agency celebrates commitment to real living wage

Accentuate Agency has today accredited as a Living Wage Employer. Their Living Wage commitment will see everyone working at Accentuate Agency receive a minimum hourly wage of £10.90, higher than the government minimum for over 23s, which currently stands at £10.42 per hour.

Accentuate Agency is based in West Midlands, a region where 13.3% of all workers earn less than they need to earn to get by, with around 316,000 jobs paying less than the real Living Wage. Despite this, Accentuate Agency has committed to pay the real Living Wage and deliver a fair day’s pay for a hard day’s work.

The cost of living and why we want to be a Living Wage Employer

The real Living Wage is the only rate calculated according to the costs of living. It provides a voluntary benchmark for employers that wish to ensure their staff earn a wage they can live on, not just the government minimum. Since 2011 the Living Wage movement has delivered a pay rise to over 450,000 people and put over £2 billion extra into the pockets of low paid workers.

Thoughts from Accentuate

Kelly Rayduta, Accentuate Agency’s Managing Director, commented

“We are delighted to be recognised as a Living Wage Employer, which align with our commitment to look after our staff”.

Katherine Chapman, Director, Living Wage Foundation said: “We’re delighted that Accentuate Agency has joined the movement of over 12,000 responsible employers across the UK who voluntarily commit to go further than the government minimum to make sure all their staff earn enough to live on.

“They join thousands of small businesses, as well as household names such as Burberry, Barclays, Everton Football Club and many more. These businesses recognise that paying the real Living Wage is the mark of a responsible employer and they, like Accentuate Agency, believe that a hard day’s work deserves a fair day’s pay.”
