BSH Home Appliances gains Living Wage Employer accreditation
Manufacturer of the Bosch, NEFF, Siemens and Gaggenau brands BSH Home Appliances Ltd has received accreditation as a Living Wage employer by The Living Wage Foundation.
The company pays its employees in excess of the Voluntary Living Wage rate of £8.45 an hour, or £9.75 in London, but in achieving this accreditation has ensured that all regular contractors engaged by the company are also paid the Living Wage.
The Living Wage, a voluntary rate calculated according to the cost of living, is independently set and updated on an annual basis.
The Voluntary Living Wage differs from the National Minimum Wage, which is a statutory rate for employees aged 25 and over that currently stands at £7.50 an hour.
Andreas Meier, CEO at BSH Home Appliances Ltd, commented: “The Living Wage accreditation is the mark of a responsible employer and we are pleased to join more than 3,000 other UK organisations to ensure that our workforce earns enough to live on.
“BSH’s social and ethical commitment is a fundamental part of our culture and we believe this is reflected by passionate staff and contractors who deliver outstanding customer serviceand value to the business.”
