We are delighted to announce that Sapphire has been accredited a Living Wage Employer by the Living Wage Foundation.
The real living wage is based on the cost of living and is voluntarily paid by over 4,700 UK employers who believe a hard day's work deserves a fair day's pay.
As a Living Wage Employer Sapphire pay the real living wage, which is higher than the government minimum, and is committed to:
- Pay the real UK or London Living Wage (as appropriate) to all of our directly employed staff over the age of 18.
- Ensure all our third-party contracted and sub-contracted regular, on-site staff are paid the real UK or London Living Wage (as appropriate).
- Increase the wages of these employee and contracted staff to the Living Wage, if appropriate, within six months of any rise in the calculated living wage rates.
As a Living Wage Employer we will renew our commitment annually.
