Lìonra Agency Inc has become a certified Living Wage Employer!
Lìonra Agency Inc has committed to pay their staff and contracted workers a living wage by certifying as Living Wage Employer.
The living wage is the hourly amount a family needs to cover basic expenses. The calculation is based on a two-parent family with two children – the most common family unit in BC – with each parent working full-time. The Living Wage for Comox Valley is $20.26 an hour.
“We established our company at the tail end of 2022, so it may seem like we’re the new kids on the block, but we’ve been hustlin’ in this industry since before social media was even a thing. Despite our years of experience, the early days of building a new agency, hiring a team, and attracting dream clients are always uncertain. However, one thing we were sure about was being a certified Living Wage employer. As a forward-thinking company, we are committed to supporting our employees by providing a living wage. By doing so, we aim to attract and retain some amazing folks while contributing to a better community and economy.” Lìonra Agency
