OneE Group becomes Living Wage employer
Posted by Daniel Lindley on 29 May 2015
Leading tax planning and investment specialist OneE Group is thrilled to announce that it has become a fully accredited Living Wage employer.
The Living Wage commitment will see everyone working at OneE Group, from permanent employees and third-party contractors to suppliers, receiving a minimum hourly wage of £7.85 – a rate significantly higher than the national minimum wage of £6.50.
Employers choose to pay the Living Wage on a voluntary basis. The Living Wage enjoys cross party support, with public backing from the Prime Minister and the Leader of the Opposition.
Dominic Slattery, managing director, OneE Group said: “Here at OneE Group, we passionately believe that hardworking people should be rewarded for their efforts and shouldn’t be made to struggle to make ends meet at home.
“Beyond this, we want all of our staff to benefit from the sense of pride that comes with being able to provide for their families, so we are genuinely proud to have made our pledge and to be accrediting with the Living Wage Foundation.“
Based in Bolton, OneE Group is one of the largest independent tax advisory firms in the UK. Founded in 2006, the company and its directors are recognised by industry leading professional bodies including the Chartered Institute of Taxation.
Living Wage Foundation Director, Rhys Moore said: “We are delighted to welcome OneE Group to the Living Wage movement as an accredited employer. The best employers are voluntarily signing up to pay the Living Wage now. The Living Wage is a robust calculation that reflects the real cost of living, rewarding a hard day’s work with a fair day’s pay.
“We have accredited over 1,400 leading employers, including One E Group, ranging from independent printers, bookshops and breweries, to well-known companies such as Nationwide, Aviva and SSE. These businesses recognise that clinging to the national minimum wage is not good for business. Customers expect better than that.“
Dominic concludes: “We are always keen to hear from young people seeking a varied career with a flexible independent company where they are valued and encouraged to learn and progress, so we are urging anybody interested to get in touch to find out more about our current positions.“
