WAIRARAPA'S FIRST LIVING WAGE ACCREDITED EMPLOYER

Living Wage Accreditation

 

Connecting Communities Wairarapa Inc is delighted to announce they are the first Wairarapa employer to become accredited as a Living Wage employer with Living Wage Movement Aotearoa New Zealand.

 

Chairperson, Brent Register announced to the board and staff last Friday, their application for accreditation had been successful and they were now leading the way for other employers to act.

 

Becoming a Living Wage employer recognized the value staff bring to an organisation, their contribution to the strategic direction of an organisation, enabling employees to live their lives with dignity and contribute to their community.

 

The living wage rate is currently $18.80 per hour.
