Ikonic Workwear are proud supporters of DYW Scotland, which is part of the Young Person's Guarantee.
"At its heart, DYW is about Education and Employers working in partnership, creating opportunities for young people to develop skills, understand and prepare for the world of work.
Whether you want to diversify your workforce, give something back to your local community or help shape your talent pipeline; have an hour, or more time to invest, DYW work with all sectors and all sizes of businesses to find the right way for you to get involved. "
We are also proud partners of Prince's Trust, which supports young people who face disadvantage and adversity to develop the confidence and skills they need to move forward in life. Over the last five years, three in four young people supported by The Prince’s Trust moved into work, education or training after completing one of our programmes.
Ikonic Workwear is also proud to be a Living Wage Scotland Employer. Living Wage Scotland was launched in April 2014 with the aim of increasing the number of employers in Scotland who are recognised for paying their staff the real Living Wage. Established by The Poverty Alliance, Living Wage Scotland works in partnership with the Living Wage Foundation and is funded by the Scottish Government.
Since then we have seen local authorities, health boards and companies across all sectors and industries commit to paying their staff a decent wage. Today, we support a network of over 2900 employers in Scotland and have seen 59,000 plus workers receive a pay rise as a direct result of Living Wage accreditation. The real Living Wage is an independently calculated rate based on the cost of living and is paid voluntarily by employers. The rate is calculated annually by The Resolution Foundation on an analysis of the wage that employees need to earn in order to afford the basket of goods required for a decent standard of living. This basket of goods includes housing, childcare, transport and heating costs.
