Momentum Becomes Accredited Living Wage Employer
On the 6th of October Momentum was proud to celebrate becoming an accredited living wage employer!
Momentum understands that paying a living wage can provided many benefits for employers and employees as well as wider society through reducing poverty. The causes of poverty are complex however it is seen that paying the living wage can be part of the solution.
Just some of the benefits of paying a living wage are that workers can afford to spend more time with their friends and loved ones, and time to dedicate to their local community. It can also provide health benefits by reducing stress and worry to employees as they are able to afford to buy food and pay bills.
All of these benefits to employees also benefit the employer with an average 25% fall in absenteeism.
