Distinct's Commitment to Fair Pay: A Living Wage Recognised Provider Since 2021.

At Distinct, we pride ourselves on being more than just a facilities management company.

We are a collective of dedicated professionals committed to excellence in every facet of our work, especially in how we treat and compensate our employees. Our recognition as a Living Wage Recognised Provider is not just an accolade; it's a profound reflection of our core values and our dedication to fostering a workplace that respects, values, and fairly compensates our staff.

Understanding the Living Wage

The Living Wage is an hourly rate independently set and updated annually, reflecting the real cost of living, ensuring employees earn a wage that meets their needs and allows them to support themselves and their families. Our commitment to the Living Wage underscores our dedication to offering our team members not just a job but a role filled with dignity, respect, and the opportunity to thrive.

Enhancing Employee Well-being

Fair compensation is crucial for improving our employees' quality of life, alleviating financial stress, and contributing to a motivated, healthy, and engaged workforce.

Setting Industry Standards

Adopting the Living Wage sets a benchmark for the entire industry. We are advocating not only for our company's values but also for encouraging our peers to elevate their standards and advocate for fairer pay across the sector.
