We are delighted to announce that CGI is an accredited Living Wage Employer.
The real Living Wage is the only rate calculated according to the costs of living. It provides a voluntary benchmark for employers that wish to ensure their staff earn a wage they can live on, not just the government minimum. Since 2011 the Living Wage movement has delivered a pay rise to over 200,000 people and put over £1Billion extra into the pockets of low paid workers.
Tara McGeehan, UK President, commented: “Our commitment to the Living Wage ensures we pay all our people fairly and recognise their valuable contribution to the success of our business. As a responsible organisation, we are proud of our commitment in this area and how this will support our wider communities.”
Katherine Chapman, Director, Living Wage Foundation said: “We’re delighted that CGI has joined the movement of nearly 6,000 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
“They join thousands of small businesses, as well as household names such as LUSH, Heathrow Airport, Barclays, West Ham Football Club and many more. These businesses recognise that paying the real Living Wage is the mark of a responsible employer and they, like CGI, believe that a hard day’s work deserves a fair day’s pay."
