Demand generation specialist oneninefive has recently become accredited as a Living Wage Employer. Our living wage accreditation acknowledges how everyone employed at oneninefive is receiving in excess of the real Living Wage.
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.
As a growing company, oneninefive understands that all businesses, regardless of size, are built from the ground-up by every employee, and so is committed to providing a workplace that results in healthier, happy employees both in and outside of work. On top of the living wage accreditation, oneninefive provides its employees with an array of wellbeing benefits such as one duvet day and a charity workday a year, £1000 person of the year, team socials, free fruit, tea and coffee and most importantly a culture of honesty, transparency and being open and supportive towards challenges outside of work, such as mental health. Oneninefive has an Employee Assistance Programme (EAP) that helps employees deal with personal and work problems that might adversely impact their work performance, health, and well-being.
“It’s great to be part of a company that has committed to paying the living wage. Oneninefive is a firm which recognises the energy and effort our teams put into making us a success. We know that it’s difficult to make ends meet with the minimum wage, especially in a place like London.
“Being part of the Living Wage Foundation makes both practical sense and is the right thing to do! It’s important to us that we’re able to help ease the financial stress of living in the capital and valuing our talented workforce.” – Francois Alba, Director of Operations
“We’re delighted that MarTech Tracker 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 MarTech Tracker, believe that a hard day’s work deserves a fair day’s pay.” – Katherine Chapman, Director, Living Wage Foundation
