Stafford and Rural Homes (SARH) believes in rewarding a hard day’s work with a fair day’s pay and that’s why we have pledged our commitment to paying the Living Wage.

As one of nearly 4,000 Living Wage Foundation employers across the UK, everyone working at SARH – other than apprentices or trainees – will receive a minimum hourly wage of £8.75 (2017), with the intention to extend the scheme to third party contractors and suppliers over a fixed period of time.

The Living Wage Foundation wage is significantly higher than the £7.50 hourly national living wage introduced in April 2016, and reflects the real cost of living. It is calculated independently and updated annually according to the basic cost of living using the ‘Minimum Income Standard’ for the UK. Essentially, the Living Wage reflects what people need to make ends meet.

“The formal approval of SARH by the Living Wage Foundation is another significant achievement in our commitment to being acknowledged as an ‘employer of choice’ and sits very comfortably alongside our recognition as a Times Top 100 Best Company to work for.”

Jo Hough, Assistant Director of Organisational Development
