The Good Work Standard has the Living Wage at its heart. A requirement of being a Living Wage employer is paying all directly employed staff a Living Wage and have a plan in place to extend that to regular sub-contracted staff as well.

We ask employers completing the Good Work Standard self-assessment to consider their whole workforce, including those who undertake work on their premises or property on a regular basis. This will likely include any security, event and cleaning staff, workers on fixed-term or agency contracts, or those self-employed and contracting with the employer.
