Several companies in the facilities management industry featured in the winners' list at this year’s Living Wage Champion Awards.

EMCOR UK, a provider of facilities, asset and workplace management services, was named as the winner of the Recognised Service Provider Champion award and Corps Security received the Recognised Service Provider Award.

In the cleaning sector, Belfast Cleaning Services Northern Ireland was awarded the Key Worker Industry Award and Employees’ Choice Award went to Sparkles Cleaning Services.

Nurture Landscapes also picked up an Industry Trailblazer Award.

The awards recognise and celebrate Living Wage Employers and individuals that are leading the movement by promoting the real Living Wage in their industries, supply chain and areas, leading to outstanding contributions to communities and industries across the UK.  

The online ceremony was hosted by Timi Merriman-Johnson (Mr MoneyJar) and sponsored by Aviva and Everton Football Club.

Katherine Chapman, Director of the Living Wage Foundation, said: “Congratulations to all our Living Wage Champion award winners and all those shortlisted. There was an outstanding collection of organisations who applied this year, and we were staggered by the incredible work they’re doing to promote the Living Wage. 

“Over 10,000 employers have now signed up to the Living Wage movement, and their leadership is making a profound difference to the lives of families and communities across the UK, particularly during the cost-of-living crisis where paying a real Living Wage is more important than ever.”
