Resolve Energy has today accredited as a Living Wage Employer. Our Living Wage commitment will see everyone working at Resolve receive a minimum hourly wage of £9.90, significantly higher than the government minimum for over 23s, which currently stands at £8.91 per hour.

 

Our company is based in the Northwest, a region with nearly a fifth of all jobs (18.4%) paying less than the real Living Wage - around 534,000 jobs. Despite this, Resolve Energy  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 300,000 people and put over £1.6 billion extra into the pockets of low paid workers.

 

Katherine Chapman, Director, Living Wage Foundation said: “We’re delighted that Resolve Energy has joined the movement of almost 9,000 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 Burberry, Barclays, Everton Football Club and many more. These businesses recognize that paying the real Living Wage is the mark of a responsible employer and they, like Resolve Energy, believe that a hard day’s work deserves a fair day’s pay."
