Why we’re paying the London Living Wage
This week, G.Network became an accredited London Living Wage employer. We were recognised by the London Living Wage Foundation for the fact that all of our staff, contractors and subcontractors’ staff are all paid at least a real Living Wage.
The London Living Wage is higher than the National Minimum Wage which is set by the government. The Living Wage is calculated independently, and reflects the cost of living in London. The calculation is performed every year.
As an organisation, we’re delighted to be accredited by the Foundation. We chose to become a Living Wage employer because we recognise that everyone who works for G.Network, including our apprentices, subcontractors and temporary staff, needs to be able to support a life outside work. As a London-focused company, we’re all too aware of the costs of living in our amazing capital city.
Despite the pandemic, we’re continuing to grow as a company. If there is one lesson that has been learned during lockdown, it’s that London needs better broadband. Our network is expanding across the capital every day, and we’re going to need more G.Networkers to help us fulfil our mission to rebuild London’s broadband from the fibre up. And our London Living Wage accreditation is yet another sign that we’re also here to support our staff, and to give back to the communities in which we operate.
