Beyond Pay: Improving low-income employment

Business in the Community logo
Beyond Pay calls on employers to respond more comprehensively to some of the biggest issues facing the UK’s workforce today.

The announcement of the National Living Wage and growing support for the Living Wage campaign have increased the focus on low pay in the UK. 

But pay is just one part of the solution. By taking broader action to improve low-income employment, we believe that companies can achieve greater benefits for business and society.
 
We are calling on employers to set a strategy that cuts across the following areas:
  • Pay and security
  • Line management
  • Communication
  • Skills and progression
  • Job design
  • Cost of living support
More guidance on this issue can be found in our Good Work for All action plan.
