LONDON, UK, April 15, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — FD Capital is paving the way for the next generation of finance professionals. As a living wage employer, FD Capital is taking another step in shaping the world of work for finance professionals interested in self-employment.
Under the partnership, FD Capital is committed to paying its employees at least living wage, which currently stands at £9.90 in the UK and £11.05 in London.
The Living Wage Foundation is an initiative of Citizens UK which promotes the voluntary payment of a living wage to employees, whether or not they live in London. FD Capital joins nearly 10,000 other companies as a living wage employer, including household names like Everton FC and nearly half of the FTSE 100.
Major financial institutions in the sector are part of the Living Wage Foundation, including Aviva and KPMG. FD Capital joins the Living Wage Foundation to promote greater equality across the industry by leading by example.
With the cost of living rising, it has never been more important to promote the importance of living wages. A study recently unveiled by the Living Wage Foundation shows that low-paying work and the cost of living crisis disproportionately affects women.
Part of the Living Wage Foundation’s work focuses on creating sustainable jobs for employees with a new standard of living hours that promotes a healthy work environment. As the role of the CFO evolves, organizations need to create safe and sustainable work environments for their employees.
With the growing popularity of remote work and work saving, joining the Living Wage Foundation is a sign of FD Capital’s commitment to equality in the workplace. As a staffing agency, FD Capital sets an example that it hopes its corporate clients will follow.
Adrian Lawrence, Director of FD Capital, said: “We are delighted to be part of the Living Wage Foundation. We have long supported a high-wage, high-skilled economy.”
