Richardsons Leisure Limited Celebrates Commitment to Real Living Wage

We are very proud to announce that Richardsons Leisure Limited has been awarded the Real Living Wage employer accreditation.

The real Living Wage is higher than the government’s minimum, or National Living Wage, and is an independently calculated hourly rate of pay that is based on the actual cost of living. It provides a voluntary benchmark for employers that choose to take a stand, by ensuring their Team earns a wage that meets the costs and pressures they face in their everyday lives.

The company, which employs circa 199 team members at its locations in Hemsby, Stalham, Wroxham and Lowestoft, has delivered an industry leading pay award of 18% since March 2022, part of a strategic commitment to continually invest in its Teams.

The Real Living Wage accreditation is one of several benefits provided by the company to reward the significant contribution team members make to creating memories and exceeding guests’ expectations.
Greg Munford, chief executive said, “achieving Real Living Wage status is part of our strategy to help the financial wellbeing of our team and forms a wider package of additional benefits at a much-needed time when household finances are under pressure”.
Marie Wilkinson, head of people and organisational development said, “we know that guests visiting our sites will be looked after with personal, second to none customer service, however we are also passionate about the wellbeing of our team too, offering BUPA health plans, discounts on holidays, days out and wellbeing treatments for them and their families, plus long-service and birthday awards, and additional leave entitlement to celebrate milestones such as first day at primary school, and moving home.”
