GCP Industrial Products believes our true worth will be determined by how much more we provide in value than take in payment. Our involvement as a Living Wage Employer is a small step to ensure all our employees are fairly compensated for their work with GCP. We believe in long-term mutually beneficial relationships as the foundation for sustained success and we believe providing a living wage positions our employees, their families and community the opportunity to benefit long-term.

People are not motivated by money. But you have to pay them enough so they are not constantly thinking about it. At House of Friendship we realized that if we really care about the people in our community, we have to treat the people who work for us well. And they can do their jobs well.
Zero Environmental is focused on delivering to a higher standard in everything we do. Becoming a Living Wage Employer was a natural fit as we already share many of the same principles and believe that equipping our employees for success will carry through to the service we provide for our clients.

We all know intuitively that an individual’s best work emanates from the sense of being truly valued and appreciated by his or her employer. The Café Joy brand is about spreading joy to our customers, and we really can’t expect our employees to spread joy authentically and whole heartedly if they don’t feel joy themselves. Paying a living wage thus became a non-negotiable element of our brand and an integral part of our business model. We made a commitment early on that Café Joy will always pay living wages to all of its employees.
Society benefits when everyone who is gainfully employed, working hard and contributing to society is paid enough to support themselves.
