Signature invests over £1m in pay uplifts

Signature Senior Lifestyle has announced an investment of more than £1.4m in pay increases for its staff this year.

The new investment will increase the pay of Signature staff by up to 18 per cent. It follows a 10 per cent increase to the company starting rate last year and means that more than 97 per cent of staff have now moved to the Voluntary Living Wage Foundation rate or above.

The latest investment brings Signature Senior Lifestyle’s minimum starting rate for care roles up to at least £12.30 per hour or above – an increase of 12.8 per cent from the previous minimum rate of £10.90 per hour.

Earlier this year, Signature Senior Lifestyle announced sector-leading employee retention rates of 96 per cent per year for its new role of ‘regional carer’, twelve months after launching the new flexible workforce programme.

Signature Senior Lifestyle CEO Kay Cox: “At Signature Senior Lifestyle we create a workplace that cares as much for our team as we do for our residents, and so I am delighted to be able to announce a further £1.4 m investment in the pay of our team members.

“Our investment in pay uplifts, and our record employee retention rates, demonstrate the success of our ongoing efforts to attract and retain top talent in the care industry. We remain committed to continuing to recognise and reward the hard work and dedication of those who deliver exceptional care with us.”
