We are very pleased to say that Bling Work Ltd is now an accredited Living Wage Employer. We decided to become an accredited London Living Wage Employer because it is the fair thing to do but also because it will help us to attract and retain the best staff. As Boris Johnson, Mayor of London has said:
Paying the London Living Wage is not only morally right, but makes good business sense too.
We know that getting building work completed to the correct standard is as often about the skill and dedication of the tradesmen involved as it is about the materials used or the plans they are working to. By being a Living Wage employer we can ensure that we are able to attract the best builders and tradesmen to work with us and that we are able to retain their services over the long term. In turn this means that we can offer a better level of service to our customers with a dedicated and skilled team we know we can rely on to get work finished to the correct standards and on time.
Working with Local Authorities across London
Many of London’s local authorities, housing associations, NHS trusts and other public bodies are also Living Wage employers. Part of the commitment on becoming accredited is to use contractors and suppliers who are also accredited so as to spread the number of Living Wage employers across the capital and the country. As Bling Work are now a Living Wage accredited employer we have the ability to fulfill construction and property refurbishment contracts for London’s local authorities and for other accredited organisations.
A Commitment to Quality
Bling Work’s accreditation as a Living Wage employer shows our continued commitment to the quality of our work and of our workers. It sits alongside our recent accreditation as a CHAS contractor which verifies our Health and Safety practices. It also sits alongside our commitment to only employ building workers and tradesmen who have a valid CSCS card so that we can verify their training and skills. We know that by employing the best quality employees, and treating them fairly, we can produce the best results for our customers.
