Norwich ethical investment firm accredited as living wage employer
A Norwich firm specialising in socially responsible investments has been accredited as a living wage employer.
The commitment by Investing Ethically means all its staff – whether direct employees or third-party contracted workers – will receive a minimum hourly wage of £8.75.
The wage, set by the Living Wage Foundation, is higher than the government’s national living wage of £7.50 and is updated annually.
Debbie Chettleburgh, relations manager at Investing Ethically, said: “As a company that help clients invest ethically in organisations that provide good working conditions and policies, it is only right that we prove we have work ethics too.
“The need for transparency is paramount across the industry. We value our staff and this commitment is verification of that.’
Other employers accredited by the Living Wage Foundation include Aviva and Ikea.
