On Wednesday 15th July FRG supported the Institute of Workplace and Facilities Management (IWFM) at the Low Pay Commission (LPC)’s annual consultation on future wage rates, providing views and insight from the security profession on the issue of low pay.
The LPC is the independent public body that advises the UK Government about the National Minimum Wage and the National Living Wage. This year, the LPC was particularly keen to hear evidence from, amongst others, the cleaning and security sectors – professions whose roles and profiles have been in the spotlight throughout the coronavirus pandemic.
As a member of the Living Wage Foundation Recognised Service Provider Leadership Group, FRG Commercial Director Troy Moffatt provided the LPC with valuable insight on the challenges facing the security industry, in particular dealing with the effects of COVID 19 and the lack of compulsory regulation for businesses within the security industry (business licencing).
