Church House Conference Centre in Westminster, London, has become a London Living Wage (LLW) employer.
Church House says the policy has been introduced in two stages and applies to all staff including full time, part time and individuals working for contracted partners supplying catering and cleaning services to the venue.
The introduction of the LLW policy has been achieved at no cost to clients with all costs being absorbed by the venue and its suppliers.
“We are a venue that prides itself on the quality of service we provide,” says Robin Parker, GM at Church House Conference Centre. “It is one of the strongest selling points of Church House Conference Centre and brings us a large amount of repeat and word of mouth business. Consequently we want to do everything we can to maintain the same regular staff.
“While I understand that for some businesses LLW might not be a viable option, I believe it is the right choice for us and will give our business the edge over our competitors,” he adds.
