Good Work for All
One in eight workers live in poverty, struggling to meet basic needs (source: JRF, 2018). This is having a huge impact on businesses as employees are less engaged, less productive and more likely to be looking for other jobs. The principle of good work – employment that offers security, rights and a fair income, opportunity for progression and a supportive and inclusive environment – is key for employers wanting to address these challenges.
Business in the Community’s Good Work For All campaign asks businesses to take steps to improve conditions for their lowest paid workers.
Creating meaningful employment is one of the most significant ways that business contributes to the livelihoods of individuals and communities, and is for many the only sustainable route out of poverty.
