Young Enterprise Scotland receives Living Wage Accreditation

The Living Wage employer mark for Scottish employers is a symbol of responsible business practice.

Living Wage accreditation celebrates employers that choose to go further than the government minimum.

Research shows that paying the real Living Wage helps businesses recruit and retain better staff, reduce absenteeism, and encourage higher productivity.

This is an employer mark that 93% of businesses say has improved their reputation.

YES team elcome the Living Wage Employer Mark

The process of accreditation is straightforward and has given recognition of our commitment. It has huge benefits because we have that stamp of approval which shows that it is important to our organisations values and is fair for our employees.

Our staff know that this is something they can look forward to year on year and it has been really well received."

Earning the real Living Wage is important because it means I am able to spend more on my daughter. Before I started working for Young Enterprise Scotland, I didn't know about the real Living Wage but being only 19 it really makes a difference
