NIXON is proud to announce we are now Living Wage accredited employers. This means we support the campaign that “A hard day’s work deserves a fair day’s pay.”
Our accreditation as living wage employers aligns with our values and vision. We have recently expanded our operation to include civil and structural engineering and architecture, in addition to quantity surveying and project management services.
As a Scottish-based company, a region where nearly a fifth of all jobs (18%) pay less than the real Living Wage – around 404,000 jobs, we are delighted to join others in laying down the benchmark for fair pay. The Living Wage Foundation have been campaigning to provide employees with a wage that accurately reflects their needs.
Katherine Chapman, Director, Living Wage Foundation said: “We’re delighted that NIXON has joined the movement of over 5,000 responsible employers across the UK who voluntarily commit to go further than the Government’s 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 IKEA, Heathrow Airport, Barclays, Chelsea and 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 NIXON, believe that a hard day’s work deserves a fair day’s pay.”
We are looking forward to championing this cause and encouraging others to do the same.
