Energy Assets Receives Living Wage Accreditation

Energy Assets has formally gained recognition as a Living Wage employer.

The company, which has offices across Scotland, England and Wales, has received confirmation of its accreditation from the Living Wage Foundation, having applied Living Wage pay rates across the organisation over the last three years.

“As a business, the proportion of our people engaged in roles that attract the Living Wage is relatively small, but this formal commitment reaffirms the value that we place on every single one of our employees and the contribution they make to our success,” said Jennifer Faichney, Group HR Director at Energy Assets.

“This announcement is also in step with our determination to be an employer of choice through our progressive Employee Assistance Programme which, among many practical and financial benefits, includes support for physical and mental wellbeing and encourages an appropriate work-life balance.”

Energy Assets also provides a vibrant environment for young people, with an apprentice pay and benefits package that far exceeds the norm for trainees. This includes comprehensive training, coaching and mentoring, plus opportunities for personal development, such as outward-bound sessions, to develop teamwork and behavioural skills.  

Laura Gardiner, Director, Living Wage Foundation said: “We’re delighted that Energy Assets has joined the movement of over 7,000 responsible employers across the UK who voluntarily commit to go further than the government minimum to make sure all their staff earn enough to live on.”

The Living Wage is the only rate calculated according to the costs of living and provides a voluntary benchmark for employers. Since 2011, the Living Wage movement has delivered a pay rise to over 250,000 people and put over £1.3 billion extra into the pockets of lower paid workers.

Energy Assets will be encouraging its supply chain partners to make a similar Living Wage commitment.
