The Community Foundation for Northern Ireland is thrilled to announce its official accreditation as a Living Wage Employer, further securing its commitment to fair compensation and support for its dedicated staff during the cost-of-living crisis.
The Community Foundation joined an exclusive list of just 87* organisations in Northern Ireland that have joined the Living Wage movement.
Over 14,000 UK-wide employers have benefited from this accreditation, creating a happier and more secure workforce as well as becoming more socially responsible.
Róisín Wood, Community Foundation for Northern Ireland CEO, said;
“We’re so incredibly proud to have received our accreditation from the Living Wage Foundation. Becoming a Living Wage Employer is a testament to our dedication that our staff team are not only valued but compensated fairly for their time and hard work.
This accreditation aligns with our values and vision of a fair and equitable society for everyone. In addition to this milestone, the Foundation introduced a range of workplace well-being initiatives, like our monthly cinema draw and relaxing wellness area in the office showing our commitment to the staff team’s welfare.
Our staff are at the heart of everything we do here, they are our greatest asset and we’re so proud to be able to support them through a difficult cost of living crisis.
The Community Foundation for Northern Ireland has always upheld high standards for our employees, and we remain dedicated to doing so as an Accredited Living Wage Employer.
We are also excited that our colleagues based in Community House have become Accredited Living Wage Employers. We are really happy to set this example and hope to inspire others to follow suit.”
