Ideas Made are pleased to announce that we’re now an accredited Living Wage Employer and, as far as we can tell, the first digital product studio to become a member of the scheme. Paying our team fairly has always been a policy, so we didn’t need to adjust any salaries in order to achieve Living Wage status. However, that doesn’t make it any less meaningful for us as a management team.
We’re currently proud residents of Elephant & Castle, home to the largest regeneration project in Europe. We’ve benefited greatly from that regeneration, getting a great deal on our office space as part of the Artworks community. At the same time, we recognise that the changes that surround us aren’t always fair, and that without initiatives like the Living Wage it’s all too easy and common for people to be left behind by the rapid regeneration of London and the escalating costs of living here.
And that’s why we’re proud to do our part as a Living Wage employer.
