Greenzone is an accredited living wage employer meaning that as a business we have made the conscious decision to ensure that our employees and contracted workers are paid a fair day’s wage.

Greenzone is committed to ensuring that every employee earns a real living wage, which is calculated based on the actual cost of living and is higher than the government’s minimum or national living wage. This commitment reflects a strong dedication to supporting our employees and providing everyone with fair pay.

The Real Living Wage, as set by the Living Wage Foundation, takes into account the cost of living and has seen a significant increase of 10% to £10.90 in the UK, with a higher rate of £11.95 for London due to the higher costs of living in the capital. This approach recognises the changing economic conditions and ensures that your employees are able to meet their basic needs without struggling financially.

By choosing to pay the real Living Wage, Greenzone is aligning itself with over 12,000 other organisations that have also made the commitment to this benchmark. This not only benefits our employees by providing them with a wage they can live on, but it also contributes to a broader movement that has put over £2 billion back into the pockets of low-paid workers over the course of more than 20 years. Additionally, the fact that this commitment extends to both directly employed staff and third-party contracted staff demonstrates a comprehensive dedication to fair compensation throughout our entire workforce.

“Obviously, we want to reward employees and we are concerned about the wellbeing of our employees.  While mental wellbeing is much publicised, financial wellbeing is just as important especially with the cost of living rising and employee stress levels increasing.  With our Employee Assistance Programme, maintaining this accreditation is part of our commitment, to supporting the financial wellbeing of our employees, and part of our wider employee benefits package.”
