As an accredited business, Grigor & Young took part in a short film to raise awareness of the opportunity for employers in Moray who meet the standard to sign up for the Real Living Wage accreditation.
One argument put forward in the film is that accreditation would be a way of demonstrating, for example, that a business is committed to reducing poverty across our local authority area.
The film was made as part of Challenge Poverty Week 2021.
It was premiered at the Fairer Moray Forum Action Group Open Meeting on 07 October 2021.
Living Wage accreditation provides for formal recognition for employers who choose to go further than the government-prescribed minimum wage.
Backed by Moray-based charity, R-evolution for Good, the invitation is for local employers to join the growing movement of employers who agree that a real Living Wage is good not only for business and workers, but also good for society.
The following Moray employers are featured in the film.
- The Unorthodox Project, Elgin.
- AES Solar, Forres.
- The Moray Council
- Spey, Forres.
- Badenoch’s Bar, Elgin.
- Elgin BID
- Gordon & MacPhail, Elgin and Forres.
- Moray College UHI, Elgin.
- Moray School Bank / R-evolution for Good, Craigellachie.
