20/20 Productions, the creative communication, event and digital production company, has become one of more than 200 living wage employers to be recognised in Edinburgh. Seventy- five per cent of accredited living wage businesses report increased motivation and retention rates for employees.
Already an Investors in People and Young People business, 20/20 Productions regularly participate in staff training, with a focus on engagement and retention. A regular at University events, 20/20 Productions have its own mentoring programme with Edinburgh Napier University and dedicate time and resources to developing its own workforce.
Alastair Scott, production MD at 20/20, commented: “For 27 years we have been committed to hiring, training and retaining the best in the business to deliver the best work we can for our clients. Having been an Investor in People organisation since 1999 we have always felt strongly about giving our employees what they deserve. In this case that is the living wage salary, and we are proud to be a part of this scheme.
“For us, the combination of opportunities, working environment and pay has resulted in a motivated and loyal team.”
Living Wage Week, happening this week, celebrates the movement and encourages more businesses to join.
