Why are we a Living Wage Employer?

McCall Media are proud to be a Living Wage Employer. We feel it is our responsibility to ensure that our employees are rewarded fairly for a hard day’s work. Therefore, we pay a wage that has been calculated to offset the basic cost of living. We make long term investments in our workers. It is our belief that a team with good compensation are better suited to provide the best possible experience for our customers. We display The Living Wage Foundation accreditation as a public commitment to the welfare and working conditions of our team.

For us, not only is it the morally correct thing to do, but it also benefits us as a business. The Living Wage Mark assures that we attract and retain motivated and skilled individuals who bring their best to all they do within the organisation. Paying our employees a fair wage reflects the attitude and beliefs that we carry in all aspects of our business. As a result, our clients feel assured they are endorsing a morally respectable company that values its employees. 

In conclusion, the Real Living Wage is calculated according to the cost of living. This is based on a basket of household goods and services. Therefore, rather than employees receiving the government minimum, workers are paid the only wage rate that considers what people need to live.
