CDW Achieves Living Wage Employer Accreditation

Careers 10 Nov, 2023

Here at CDW, we’re committed to the wellbeing, support, and care of each and every one of our coworkers. We continually focus on ensuring equity and providing opportunity for our coworkers. Our efforts are all underpinned by our One CDW culture and portfolio of business resource groups which provide a voice and allyship for minority, underrepresented, and disadvantaged groups. That’s why we’re pleased to say we’ve been accredited as a Living Wage employer since September 2023.  

The real Living Wage is the only UK wage rate based on the cost of living. By paying the living wage, we believe our coworkers should earn a wage that covers them for everyday needs – and we stand by that belief through our actions. This accreditation is testament to that. 

To be accredited as a Living Wage Employer, not only do you need to pay the real Living Wage to all your directly employed staff, you also need to have a plan to pay your contractors a Living Wage too. We undertook a long process to ensure this was the case before submitting our application to the Living Wage Foundation.  

We’re proud to join over 14,000 UK employers leading the way in holding Living Wage accreditation and paying coworkers and contractors the wage they truly deserve. We’ve always been aligned to the ambitions of the Real Living Wage Foundation and wanted to unequivocally demonstrate this commitment by achieving this accreditation.   

Jon Steggles, ESG Strategic Lead, commented “Gaining accreditation as a Real Living Wage Employer is yet another great example of how CDW lives our values, combining ambition with action and impact.”
