We make five ‘living’ commitments:
We know that a sustainable future must include every person and family enjoying a fair standard of living. We think that all organisations should consider for the lives of those that make up their teams. Without that reasonable baseline, the world will not be in balance.
We pay all staff at or above the Real Living Wage
Millboard is committed to our employees and their families and voluntarily pays above the Real Living Wage. This is calculated according to the basic cost of living in the UK, and is not to be confused with the lower National Minimum Wage set by the UK government.
We promote a fair work/life balance for all our staff
We fully recognise the demands of daily life outside of work for all our valued staff members. We readily accommodate work-from-home and flexible working arrangements wherever possible, and we ensure that working hours are not excessive.
We protect the safety of all staff while at work
We're accredited to ISO 45001, but we take our duty of care beyond those basic requirements. We always consider the needs of staff in the workplace and ensure that their work can be carried out safely and without undue strain.
We provide enhanced support for those having a family
We believe that parenting is a wonderful thing and is clearly intrinsic to sustainability. We do all that we can to support those having children by providing over and above the statutory level of maternity pay.
We actively support charitable causes to support those less fortunate
Each year, we donate hundreds of thousands to charity to support clear cases of need. Typically, we donate 1% of turnover, and in recent years have supported over 30 charities across multiple areas.
Alongside our five key commitments there are other things we do to protect standards of ‘living’
We ensure that the work environment is fair and free from discrimination or bullying
We provide our staff with first-rate refreshment and welfare facilities
We give practical support to charitable activities such as food boxes for those less fortunate
