We’re strong believers that happier employees make better, loyal workers. So what does that mean for our customers? Well it means a consistent level of service thanks to lower staff turnaround.
Our Clean Slate Fair Pay Charter is designed to protect and reward our employees based on the below criteria:
Clean Slate achieved accreditation as a Living Wage employer in 2020 however renewal of this was not sought. Clean Slate believes that the value of this accreditation in the cleaning industry is lost through the Living Wage Foundation’s “Recognised Service Provider” (RSP) scheme. Under this programme a RSP can currently indefinitely pay some, or in many cases most cleaning staff the minimum wage (between £4.62 and £8.91) yet still display a similar accreditation logo simply by paying ‘head office’ staff at a higher rate. For further information on this please visit https://www.livingwage.org.uk/recognised-service-providers.
Clean Slate believe that it is important to actually pay the Real Living Wage Rate to all cleaning staff and that the RSP scheme simply perpetuates the low pay problem within the cleaning industry.
