Scottish Government launches Scottish Business Pledge - Scottish Business Pledge
A new voluntary code for companies to commit to the best of modern business practices will be launched later today. Part of the Government’s new Economic Strategy, the Scottish Business Pledge is a partnership between the Scottish Government and business to commit to fair and progressive policies that boost productivity, recognise fairness and increase diversity. Made up of nine components, companies wanting to commit to the Scottish Business Pledge must pay the Living Wage to all direct employees over 18, be delivering on at least two other elements and be committed to achieving the rest over time.FM sets out Scottish partnership for growth (Scottish Government 26.05.15)
