Kingsley Napley becomes an accredited London Living Wage employer

1 October 2014

I am delighted that Kingsley Napley has become an accredited London Living Wage (LLW) employer.

LLW is set annually by the Living Wage Foundation. The current rate is £9.15 an hour (compared with the National Minimum Wage of £6.50).

All directly employed Kingsley Napley staff are paid considerably above the LLW, but our responsibilities as an accredited LLW employer extend further, to include pay earned by our suppliers and contractors. We have confirmed with the majority of our suppliers that their staff are paid at or above the LLW and we are working with others to secure their commitment to paying at least the LLW.   We now make it a condition of any new supplier contract that it too must pay its staff at least the LLW.

We are committed to the LLW initiative and accreditation by the Foundation is a reflection of our Corporate and Social Responsibilities (CSR) commitment to be a good employer. As demonstrated by our Best Companies Accreditation, 84% of KN’s staff believe the Firm has a strong social conscience and we hope that by joining the network of accredited employers, we can help the Foundation influence other employers and suppliers to exercise theirs and get behind the LLW.

The LLW accreditation is also one way to ensure Kingsley Napley’s values extend to all those who work at our offices and are a part of the Firm. We want to attract, motivate and retain the best people, whether they are employed directly by us or by others, and the LLW is a fantastic way to do this.
