Our Commitment as a Living Wage Employer 
Posted by Amelia Spanton on 11 August 2023

We are pleased to announce that Hey Me has recently pledged to be a Living Wage Employer.  

As we take this key step, we wish to share more about what it means to be a Living Wage Employer and the positive impact it has.

What is the Living Wage? 

The Living Wage is an independently calculated hourly rate that takes into account the real cost of living. It differs from the government-mandated minimum wage, which may not provide employees with enough income to meet their basic needs. As a Living Wage Employer, we have committed to paying all our employees, including contractors and subcontractors, a wage that meets or exceeds the Living Wage rate. 

Why should you also become a Living Wage Employer? 

By becoming a Living Wage Employer, you are not only helping to set the ethical industry standard, but there are a range of other benefits for you and your community.  

The Living Wage allows our team members to focus on their professional growth and well-being without the burden of financial stress, ultimately fostering a happier and more motivated workforce. 

The Living Wage commitment helps local economies thrive, as employees stimulate growth by actively participating in the economy. 

Not only that but embracing the Living Wage approach enhances business’s ability to attract and retain top talent as it indicates a commitment to staff welfare.  

We are committed to fostering a supportive and positive workplace and firmly believe that this commitment helps our team and business thrive.  We invite other businesses to also make this step and drive positive change across the entire business landscape.

“Since day one, Amy herself has fit seamlessly into our team, understanding the message we want to convey and the audiences we want to reach. Her upfront audit was invaluable in helping us internally hone our common voice, which has demonstrated itself in the consistency of the content we put out as a brand and as individuals within the company. Behind the scenes, Amy has instinctively adopted our internal communication methods (Slack, SharePoint) and works closely with our in-house graphic design team to ensure our graphics and copy are in sync.” Lucy Prior MBE - previously from 3Squared 2021
“I saved so much time after implementing a more structured approach which has given me the opportunity to focus on creating more content and work more closely with my clients. Amy and her team are easy to deal with and are quick to provide valuable solutions. I would not hesitate to work with Hey Me again in the future.” Karen Duncan - Lanehead Coniston
“I met Amy a few years ago at a Young Rail Professionals event and was able to provide her with an opportunity to manage the comms on a major alliance which she flourished at. Soon after she started, Marie came along to provide HR support across the multiple businesses. It seems only natural that being as dynamic and knowledge as they are, they are looking to work together on this new venture, which I am sure will be a huge success.” Karen Duncan - Lanehead Coniston
