Rockford Associates celebrates commitment to Real Living Wage

Rockford Associates Limited, the UK’s leading risk free Recovery Audit Specialist is pleased to announce it has today received formal accreditation as a Living Wage Employer.

Our Living Wage commitment will see everyone working with Rockford Associates receive a minimum hourly wage of £9.30 in the UK or £10.75 in London. Both rates are significantly higher than the government minimum for over 25s, which currently stands at £8.72 per hour.
Whilst delivering works nationally, Rockford Associates central offices are based in the South East, a region where 15% of all jobs pay less than the real Living Wage – around 572,000 jobs. Despite this, Rockford Associates has committed to pay the real Living Wage and deliver a fair day’s pay for a hard day’s work.

The real Living Wage is the only rate calculated according to the costs of living. It provides a voluntary benchmark for employers that wish to ensure their staff earn a wage they can live on, not just the government minimum Since 2011 the Living Wage movement has delivered a pay rise to over 230,000 people and put over £1 billion extra into the pockets of low paid workers.

Ray Dorney – Sales Director, Rockford Associates, comments:

“Committing to the Living Wage is something we firmly believe reflects our ethos and core values. It underpins doing the right thing for our employees and communities. We aim to lead by example with both Clients and the wider Supply Chain demonstrating the positive impact this kind of initiative can deliver to maximise social value within our communities.”

Katherine Chapman, Director, Living Wage Foundation said:

“We’re delighted that Rockford Associates has joined the movement of over 6000 responsible employers across the UK who voluntarily commit to go further than the government minimum to make sure all their staff earn enough to live on.

“They join thousands of small businesses, as well as household names such as Burberry, Barclays, Chelsea and Everton Football Clubs, Lush, and many more. These businesses recognise that paying the real Living Wage is the mark of a responsible employer and they, like Rockford Associates, believe that a hard day’s work deserves a fair day’s pay.”
