The Difference Between Providing A Living and Thriving Wage
Providing a living wage in high cost of living areas often means paying above going market rates. However, a living wage simply means making enough to survive, and many employees will need to take on a second or third job to make ends meet.
C3 inspires nonprofits to consider the competitive advantage of providing a thriving wage, which accounts for things we need beyond what it takes to survive: having enough household income to save, pay down debt, afford higher education, occasional entertainment, or after-school programs for kids. Demonstrate your commitment to employee well-being and engagement by going beyond covering the basics of everyday life — housing, food, clothing — and supporting a heightened standard of living and a more comprehensive approach to total rewards.
Let us share our experience in how helping workers thrive can work for all.
