Ward Security is pleased to announce that it has become a Recognised Service Provider working alongside the Living Wage Foundation. The achievement means that Ward Security and all its subsidiaries are putting a Living Wage pathway in place that meets the standards set by the Living Wage Foundation for good practice by providers of personnel under contract.
The Living Wage commitment sees Ward Security propose a Living Wage option within applicable tender submissions. This gives the client an option of paying all contracted staff a wage that meets the current cost of living.
“We’re very proud of this achievement,” explained managing director Kevin Ward. “We are one of only a few service providers in the security industry to have been recognised for our ongoing commitment to the Living Wage.”
Ward continued: “Ward Security’s growth since the business was founded in 2000 has been as a result of the levels of service we provide and the quality of people working for us. We pride ourselves on providing a supporting work environment which puts our staff first, and our commitment to our staff was again recognised in 2016 by Investors in People.”
Ward Security remains one of the few Investors in People (Gold) employers in the sector with a score of 167 out of 174 in an independent audit conducted on behalf of the Security Industry Authority. This places the business within the top 2% of all security companies.”
