Join us for this live written discussion with a panel of experts to explore the business case for paying living wages, and how can businesses can implement living wages across their value chains.
Thursday 14th September, 10am to 11am EDT / 3pm to 4 pm BST
The business case for paying living wages is that it can improve employee morale, reduce turnover, and enhance a company’s reputation and brand image. To implement living wages, businesses can conduct a cost-benefit analysis, determine a fair wage based on the local cost of living, and engage with suppliers and contractors to ensure that fair wages are being paid throughout the value chain. Additionally, companies can also invest in employee training and development programs to enhance the skills of their workforce and increase productivity.
Join us for our discussion with a panel of experts to explore these issues and the implications for business action.
