Paying above the National Living Wage
Posted on 21 March 2017
Brunelcare has decided to pay its employees at least 25p per hour more than the National Living Wage this year.
Due to come in to effect on 1 April 2017, the national living wage is being increased for workers aged 25 and over. From the 1st May, Brunelcare will pay a minimum of £7.75 per hour for all colleagues aged 19 years and over. This is 25 pence more than the mandatory £7.50 national living wage.
Brunelcare’s CEO, Kevin Fairman, says:
“The high quality care and services we provide relies entirely on the hard work and dedication of our employees.
“We believe that this decision to pay more than the National Living Wage helps show our appreciation of our employees and will hopefully encourage more people to join us.
Robert Eales, Brunelcare’s HR Director, says:
“Paying above the National Living Wage, regardless of age, is a crucial part of our broader approach to attracting and retaining the high quality, talented people we want to work for us.
