Bay Media Recognised with Living Wage Accreditation

Living Wage Employer

At Bay Media, we believe our employees deserve a wage that meets their everyday needs and helps them achieve a higher standard of living. As such, we’re incredibly proud to receive a living wage accreditation today from the Living Wage Foundation!

The real Living Wage, which we pay our employees, is now voluntarily paid by over 11,000 businesses, including half of the FTSE 100, Google, Nationwide, Ikea and more.


What Is the ‘Real Living Wage’?

In April 2016, the UK government introduced a higher minimum wage rate called the “national living wage” for workers over 25. However, this wage is based on a target of reaching 66% of median earnings by 2024 rather than on what employees need to live on.

The real Living Wage, on the other hand, is independently calculated according to the cost of living, based on a range of necessary household goods and services.



Living Wage Accreditation

Our accreditation as a living wage employer highlights our commitment to being a responsible, ethical business. As a member of the Birmingham Business Charter for Social Responsibility, we are also committed to implementing sustainable solutions and business practices.

We are delighted to be part of this important campaign, and we hope it continues to grow and help businesses and employees to achieve a real living wage.
