Ypeople are a Living Wage Employer...

We are particularly proud of our achievements which have been made possible by the quality and commitment of our staff who are our greatest asset, being able to pay our staff the Living Wage shows that we value their contribution and commitment to the organisation.

Ypeople did not have a massive step to make to become an accredited Living Wage Employer as our pay scales were above the living wage threshold. As well as this we were delighted to provide our staff with a 2% cost of living pay rise in 2014/2015.
