Living Wage Week

Living Wage Week

9-15 November 2020

Join us for the annual celebration of the real Living Wage movement. This week begins with the new rate announcement and continues throughout the week with networking events, webinars, testimony from employers and workers and much more.

This is the year of the virtual event and we believe that means our activities will be more engaging, accessible and inclusive! To join in, accredited Living Wage Employers can download a Digital Pack. You can also book a place at one of our online events listed below.

If you have any questions about these events, you can contact us at accreditation@povertyalliance.org

The real Living Wage is an hourly rate, independently calculated and based on the cost of living. The rate is updated annually in November. Over 1,800 in Scotland employers chose to pay the real Living Wage. We support employers in Scotland on their journey to accreditation and promote them as best practice employers.

A Fair Flexible Work Programme for Scotland

WEDNESDAY 11 NOVEMBER 1PM

This webinar from flexible working experts Timewise, in partnership with Glasgow Chamber of Commerce and Living Wage Scotland is for Business Owners, Line Managers and HR Managers who are interested in flexible ways of working.
 
We have now experienced a number of months of enforced home working, with social distancing measures continuing in the months ahead. That makes it more important than ever that people managers work with employees to actively support flexible ways of working.
 
It’s also unlikely that the post-Covid-19 workplace will be how it was before, not least because employees may be loath to accept a full-scale return to the office. So it’s critical to future-proof any plans and practices that you put in place at this time.
 

From crisis to opportunity in a post pandemic labour market is a Timewise webinar designed to help Business Owners, Line Managers and HR Managers do exactly that.
