SES Consulting has become a certified Living Wage Employer!
SES Consulting 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 Metro-Vancouver is $24.08 an hour.
“SES Consulting is proud to announce that we have been certified as a Living Wage Employer. This certification is important to us to demonstrate to our employees and the suppliers we work with that 'We care about each other and our community'. We understand that affordability is challenging in the face of rising costs of housing, groceries and general inflation. We feel the Living Wage Employer certification process is one way that we can practice our values and encourage our colleagues in other companies to do the same.” Scott Sinclair, CEO, SES Consulting
SES Consulting focuses on providing consulting services regarding energy efficiency and conservation in commercial buildings. SES Consulting provides Energy Audits, Retro-
Commissioning, Mechanical Design, Building Automation, and Engagement and Training, all to fight global warming and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
“We’re delighted that SES Consulting has become a Living Wage Employer. We hope it encourages other employers to join the Living Wage movement. Paying a living wage is good for workers, employers and the local community” said Anastasia French, Living Wage for Families BC
