Differing from the minimum wage determined by the government, the living wage rate is independently calculated by the Living Wage Foundation and set according to what employees and their families need to live and get by. AMI joined the Living Wage Foundation as we believe that our employees deserve a fair pay that reflects the real cost of living.
Our people help us stand out from our competitors. The AMI team are dedicated to ensuring the security of our customers’ data and delivering a highly professional and customer-centric service. We believe that people willing to work to such a high standard should be rewarded sufficiently.
In addition, AMI can already see the positive impact of this commitment across our organisation. Employees who feel that they are appreciated take greater pride in both their work and their company. As well as more motivated and dedicated employees, businesses also benefit from lower rates of staff turnover, reductions in absenteeism, and enhanced corporate reputation.
As AMI operates in an industry requiring a high level of unskilled manual workers, we feel it is especially important to make this pledge. Our membership of the Living Wage Foundation will benefit our employees and the company as a whole, while also improving the wider community. We’re proud to be a Living Wage champion in Northern Ireland and encourage more companies to embrace the impactful initiative.
