FM Enterprises Win Living Wage Champion Awards

July 14, 2022

Several companies in the facilities management industry were on the list of winners of this year’s Living Wage Champion Awards.

EMCOR UK, a facility, asset and workplace management services provider, was named the Recognized Service Provider Champion and Corps Security received the Recognized Service Provider Award.

In the cleaning sector, Belfast Cleaning Services Northern Ireland received the Key Worker Industry Award and the Employees’ Choice Award went to Sparkles Cleaning Services.

Nurture Landscapes also won an Industry Trailblazer Award.

The awards recognize and celebrate living wage employers and individuals who lead the movement in promoting real living wage in their industries, supply chain and fields, leading to outstanding contributions to communities and industries across the United Kingdom.

The online ceremony was hosted by Timi Merriman-Johnson (Mr. MoneyJar) and sponsored by Aviva and Everton Football Club.

Katherine Chapman, Director of the Living Wage Foundation, said, “Congratulations to all of our Living Wage Champion award winners and those who were shortlisted. There was an exceptional set of organizations that applied this year, and we were amazed at the incredible work they are doing to promote living wage.

“Over 10,000 employers have now joined the Living Wage movement, and their leadership is making a profound difference in the lives of families and communities across the UK, especially during the cost of living crisis where paying a real living wage is more important than ever.
