SCUK announces accreditation as a ‘Living Wage’ employer
Sumitomo Chemical (UK) plc (SCUK) is delighted to announce the company is an accredited Living Wage Employer. This is part of our commitment to protect and promote human rights.
Living Wage Employers are committed to paying hourly wages higher than the UK government’s legal minimum wage. This ‘Living Wage’ is an independently-calculated hourly rate of pay that is based on the actual cost of living. It is calculated each year by the Living Wage Foundation. You can find out more about the Living Wage by visiting www.livingwage.org.uk (opens in new tab).
Six thousand organisations of all sizes and national and international presence, together with SCUK, voluntarily committed to always pay the real Living Wage because we believe all employees deserve a fair pay. This public commitment applies not only to directly employed staff, but also to our third party contracted staff, such as our cleaners.
The Living Wage commitment benefits hundreds of thousands of families by enabling them to earn a wage they can actually live on.
