Recently, Crystal has proudly become a member of the ‘Living Wage Foundation’. This foundation exists upon the calculation and belief of what employees should be earning in order to live.
“The real Living Wage is the only UK wage rate that is voluntarily paid by over 4,700 UK businesses who believe their staff deserve a fair day’s pay for a hard day’s work. Our employers pay the real Living Wage, which is higher than the government minimum – they also make sure all their employees in London receive the London Living Wage…Over 180,000 employees have received a pay rise as a result of the Living Wage campaign and we enjoy cross-party support. “
A director from Crystal explained why the business has joined this foundation; “I felt it important that as a company that values its people, we pay them in excess of the National Wage. It demonstrates our ethics, is good for business and I know that coupled with other initiatives it helps Crystal retain the great people we currently have and also helps attract the best people in the future to join us.”
