This week, Resi is very excited to announce that we’ve been recognised by the Mayor of London as one of the city’s first Mayor’s Good Work Standard employers. We even got to meet the man himself!
This new initiative promises to help make London a better place to work, and even has benefits for our customers. Naturally, you might be wondering: what does this scheme even mean?
Have no fear, here’s all you need to know about this exciting new program...
What is the Mayor’s Good Work Standard?
Put simply, the Mayor’s Good Work Standard wants to create an above and beyond set of standards for all employers in London. This means bringing together the best practices and giving employers the resources they need to meet them.
Why has the Mayor of London created this initiative?
Well, it’s simple. On average, most of us in full time employment spend up to (or more) than 40 hours a week in the workplace. It’s a huge part of our lives and plays a big factor in our well being. By raising the bar on what an employee deserves, you get a population that our happier and healthier, while also more protected from bad practices.
And it’s not only the employees who benefit from this scheme, employers can see big improvements like…
- Attracting, recruiting and retaining the best skills and talent
- Reduced absences and sick leave
- Higher levels of employee engagement and motivation
- Increased productivity
- Cost savings
- Reputational gain
