Living Wage Employers

Green Home Systems celebrates Living Wage accreditation

Green Home Systems has become accredited as a Living Wage employer. Their Living Wage commitment will see everyone working at Green Home Systems receive a minimum hourly wage of £9.50, which is higher than the statutory minimum. The real Living Wage is set independently and updated annually, and calculated according to the real costs of living.

“We believe in using our business as a force for good and we’re proud to join a movement of employers who recognise the true cost of living in the UK,” said Steven Porch, Operations Director at Green Home Systems. “We believe people are the heart of any business; recognising, rewarding and empowering them in our view is not just the right thing to do but also key to success. During this time of extraordinary change and uncertainty, this is one of many practical commitments businesses can make to support their people by offering them more financial security and confidence to plan for their futures.”

Employers choose to pay the real Living Wage on a voluntary basis, recognising the value of their workers and ensuring that a hard day’s work receives a fair day’s pay. Right now, is when standing by these values matters the most and employers who do right by workers and families are the ones that will help lead us through and out of this crisis.

Peter Kelly, Director of the Poverty Alliance said, “The real Living Wage is one of the key tools at our disposal to help make an impact on levels of in-work poverty in Scotland. The pandemic has shown just how much we need each other to get by and has shone a light on the crucial role of keyworkers.  Payment of the real Living Wage allows those in work to become more included in society, better provide for their families, and feel that their value and hard work is recognised by their employer. We are delighted to congratulate Green Home Systems on becoming a Living Wage employer. I hope more organisations follow their lead by becoming accredited”.

Living Wage Scotland Interim Manager, Lynn Anderson, said, “We are delighted to welcome Green Home Systems to the Living Wage movement. We are a movement of over 1900 Scottish employers who together want to go further than the government minimum to make sure that everyone can earn a decent standard of living and families have what they need to thrive. Our network includes lots of smaller employers as well as larger and iconic Scottish employers like SSE, Standard Life Aberdeen, Barrs, Brewdog, D.C. Thomson and many more. Employers like Green Home Systems are helping to set the standard for business in Britain by making sure that workers have what they need to get by and we hope to see many more employers following their example.”
