Incentive FM Group has become the latest FM service provider to be accredited as a Living Wage provider for employees in its central services team.
Incentive's announcement follows those of several other FM service companies in committing to paying their own central office staff no less than the Living Wage. OCS Group became the most recent of these before today's announcement, when it announced its own recognition as a Living Wage service provider last week.
Incentive FM Group is also joining with OCS and others in providing a Living Wage option for clients both new business tenders and for existing clients.
The Living Wage is calculated by the GLA in London and the Centre for Research in Social Policy (CRSP), against the basic cost of living in the UK. Currently it is £9.15 in London and £7.85 in the rest of the country.
Incentive FM Group's managing director, Martin Reed, said: "We recognise that there are challenges for our clients on this journey, but we are working closely with them to help identify efficient solutions."
The company has also pledged to raise the Living Wage paid to its staff in line with any increase announced by the GLA/CRSP, within six months of such an announcement.
