We are delighted to announce that Steeldeck Rentals has become accredited as a Living Wage Employer, meaning that everyone who works for us earns a fair living wage as calculated by the Living Wage Foundation.

While we have paid the Living Wage to all of 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 it will serve as an example and encourage others in our industry to sign up as Living Wage Foundation accredited employers.

The Living Wage is independently calculated at £9.90 per hour across the UK and £11.05 per hour in London, compared to the current minimum wage which is £8.91 for individuals over the age of 23. 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.
