About this Event

Employers are invited to attend a celebratory networking event to mark Living Wage Week, hosted by Standard Life Aberdeen, at the fantastic Aberdeen Standard Investments venue in the heart of Aberdeen city.

Living Wage Week is the annual celebration of the Living Wage movement in the UK.

Employer support of the voluntary Living Wage movement is stronger than ever, with over 1600 accredited Living Wage employers in Scotland, and over 5500 across the UK.

The Living Wage Foundation announced in August that the impact of accredited employers choosing to pay the real Living Wage has delivered £1 Billion of extra wages to low paid workers since the campaign began in 2001.

Enjoy a unique networking opportunity to connect with employers from a variety of sectors and industries around the common theme of the real Living Wage.

Hear from local businesses, sharing their experience of becoming accredited as Living Wage employers. Learn more on the benefits and challenges of making a Living Wage commitment, alongside opportunities to get involved with the growing movement.

The event will celebrate the progress made, encourage shared learning and open up new conversations about the real Living Wage in the North East of Scotland.

Agenda includes:

• The success and challenge of growing the Living Wage employer movement (Lynn Anderson, Living Wage Scotland)

• Business experiences and advice on becoming a Living Wage employer (Sandy MacDonald, Head of Sustainability at Standard Life Aberdeen, and Calum Richardson, Director of the award winning Bay Fish & Chip Shop in Stonehaven).

• Making Aberdeen a Living Wage City- how should we begin? (Facilitated Q&A)

• Networking & Photo opportunities

Refreshments and lunch buffet will be provided.
