Contract Ecology is celebrating
We’ve been awarded the Living Wage Employer Mark from the Living Wage Foundation.
As a growing ecological consultancy and ecological mitigation services contactor which provides ecological surveys and habitat management services UK wide. We are pleased to announce that we are now an accredited Living Wage employer. This means that every member of staff in our organisation earns not just the minimum wage but the Living Wage.
The Living Wage is an hourly rate set independently, It is updated annually and is based on the cost of living in the UK. We believe that every member of staff deserves a Living Wage.
On becoming a Living Wage Employer:
“We want to provide a professional ecological consultancy and ecological mitigation service which is focused on the needs of our customers. Because we are driven by a constant desire for quality, efficiency and innovation. Therefore an integral part of that starts with being an ethical employer with which comes an aspiration for responsible pay.
Becoming a Living Wage Employer is great for team moral and helps keeps the team focused on the company’s ethos. It ensures the ‘best of us’ for our clients as we believe it increases both professionalism and productivity.
Our clients are looking to source responsibly in their supply chain. So for us paying a wage that is enough to live on is good for business, good for the individual and good for society”.
Oonagh Nelson, Director. Contact Ecology Ltd.
