Our Feature in HR Grapevine Magazine
This months edition of HR Grapevine Magazine focuses on the topic of ‘talent management. Looking at how to keep hold of top talent. We have featured this month with “In a Volatile Market, How do you Remain a Competitive Employer?”
The real living wage and its impact upon pay structures.
The real living wage increase to be paid by more than 11,000 UK businesses of over 10% in November of last year is set to have a large impact upon the economy as a whole.
In a Volatile Market how do you remain a competitive employer?
Every day we speak to clients that are trying to decide what they can do to attract and retain staff in the current economic crisis. With their employees feeling the pinch, the increase in the minimum wage looming, the huge real living wage hike in October last year plus the fuel price increases, most organisations are trying to find a way forward that is sustainable but will also help their staff.

Real living wage
The Real Living Wage Foundation has just raised its RLW by 10% to £ 10.90 an hour in the UK. This is a lot higher than some forecasters expected, however it is an accurate reflection of inflation at this point in time. There are some very lively factors to consider if you are a RLW employer.
