Delta Security Management has been accredited as a Living Wage Employer. The Living Wage commitment will see everyone working at Delta Security Management receive a minimum hourly wage of £9.50 which is significantly higher than the government minimum for over 25s, which currently stands at £8.72 per hour.
Based in Crawley, West Sussex, a region where 15% of all jobs pay less than the real Living Wage - around 572,000 jobs. Despite this, Delta Security Management has committed to pay the real Living Wage and deliver a fair day’s pay for a hard day’s work.
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 230,000 people and put over £1 billion extra into the pockets of low paid workers.
David Graffham, Founder of Delta Security Management, said: “Delta Security’s first-class reputation is down to the quality and expertise of our colleagues. We firmly believe that paying the Living Wage is the right thing to do as a responsible employer. It will help us to attract and retain the best people, supporting them in building a rewarding career within the security industry and at Delta Security Management.”
Katherine Chapman, Director, Living Wage Foundation said: “We’re delighted that Delta Security Management has joined the movement of over 6000 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 Burberry, Barclays, Chelsea and Everton Football Clubs, Lush, and many more. These businesses recognise that paying the real Living Wage is the mark of a responsible employer and they, like Delta Security Management, believe that a hard day’s work deserves a fair day’s pay."
