The Mayor of London launched the Good Work Standard as part of his commitment to making London the best city in the world to work.
We are pleased to have achieved the Mayor's Good Work Standard, recognising London Square's commitment to our people. It reflects the many ways in which we are striving for the best possible working conditions for our employees.
The Mayor's Good Work Standard sets the benchmark for the best employment standards and helps employers contribute to a fairer and more inclusive London economy. This means an economy that works for all Londoners, allowing more Londoners who can access good jobs.
The Good Work Standard recognises best practice across four pillars:
To make this happen, the Mayor is working with businesses like ours to celebrate excellent work practices and assist businesses in adopting best practice approaches by bringing together a range of support and resources.
By signing up to the Mayor's Good Work Standard, employers signal that they are committed to healthy, fair and inclusive workplaces. We know this is an important step in attracting and retaining a diverse, talented and successful workforce and we hope to assist other businesses in realising these benefits.
