Our fair work commitment 

We are committed to creating a fair place to work for all our employees.  This includes our committement to the Scottish Governments fair and inclusive work agenda. 

To help support this committment we ensure we adhere to the Fair Work Framework and adopt the real Living Wage for all our employees. 

Fair work means secure employment with fair pay and conditions, where workers are heard and represented, treated with respect and have opportunities to progress.

It is vital in tackling poverty. It balances the rights of employers and workers and is good for society and the economy.

Fair work and reducing workplace inequalities are central to our work to transform Scotland’s economy, ensuring that everyone is able to contribute. Our vision is for Scotland to become a leading fair work nation by 2025.

Fair Work Framework

The framework is a guide to help everyone in the workplace better understand what is meant by fair work and why it is important for Scotland as a whole. 

The framework focusses on 5 key areas of fair work:

Effective voice

For individuals, the opportunity to have an effective voice is crucially important. Having a say at work is consistent with the broader suite of rights available to citizens in democratic societies.


It is a reasonable aspiration to want work that is fair – and for fair work to be available to everyone. Fair opportunity allows people to access work and employment and is a crucial dimension of fair work.


Security of income can contribute to greater individual and family stability and promote more effective financial planning, including investment in pensions.


Fulfilment can also arise from positive and supportive workplace relationships that promote a sense of belonging and this overlaps strongly with respect as a dimension of fair work.


Respect at work enhances individual health, safety and wellbeing. Dignified treatment can protect workers from workplace-related illness and injury and create an environment free from bullying and harassment.

You can find out more about the framework at the Fair Work Convention website

Real Living Wage

The real living wage is a term used to describe what is considered the minimum hourly rate an individual needs to have an acceptable standard of living (e.g. to be able to need their basic needs).  

We are committed to paying our employees the real living wage.
