Making a decent living

We’re delighted to announce that Steeldeck Rentals is now an accredited Living Wage Employer. This means that everyone who works for us earns a fair living wage as calculated by the Living Wage Foundation.

While we’ve paid the living wage to all our contractors and staff for many years, this official accreditation demonstrates our commitment to joining the 9,000 other UK businesses in going above the government minimum and ensuring our employees earn enough to meet their needs. We also hope that we’ll serve as an example and encourage others in our industry to sign up as Living Wage Foundation accredited employers.

The living wage has been independently calculated at £10.90 an hour across the UK and £11.95 an hour in London. Almost 300,000 employees nationwide have received a pay rise so far as a result of the Living Wage campaign, which enjoys cross-party support in government. Other employers currently accredited include half of the FTSE 100 and major names including Nationwide, Google, BrewDog, Ikea and Chelsea FC.
