Living Wage Foundation Recognises Corps CEO
Mike Bullock, CEO of Corps Security which was established in 1859, has been appointed a member of the Living Wage Foundation’s Recognised Service Provider Leadership Group.
The appointment follows a decision by the company to join the Living Wage Foundation’s Service Provider Recognition Scheme earlier this year, as part of a drive to improve the pay and living standards of its security officers.
The Leadership Group was set up to influence the FM marketplace around the Living Wage Recognition Programme for service providers, advise on overall strategy relating to the Living Wage and service provider recognition and its promotion in the facilities management and outsourcing sectors. In addition to Bullock, who represents the security sector, the leadership group includes representatives from the Institute of Workplace and Facilities Management (IWFM) the Cleaning and Support Services Association (CSSA), Sodexo, ISS, Facilicom and Carlisle Support Services. Up to 20 people can be members of the group and they serve for a three-year term. The group meets quarterly.
Corps Security has committed to paying all head office staff the Living Wage and to offer a Living Wage bid alongside every quotation submitted at standard market rates to prospective and current clients. This provides clients with the option of implementing the Living Wage at the point of tender.
Corps joins more than 140 organisations which have made the same commitment to champion the Living Wage.
Bullock says: “We are committed to always providing the highest standard of pay and support to our people.
“Joining the Leadership Group and representing the security profession is a key part of that journey.”
