CMS backs employee fairness initiative with Scottish Business Pledge

  • 20 Jun 2018

CMS Window Systems has partnered with the Fairness Commissioner in North Lanarkshire, along with several other organisations dedicated to addressing social inequality and poverty, at a special event to encourage businesses to follow its Living Wage lead and sign up to the Scottish Business Pledge.

The company was invited to present to business leaders from across the region at a recent seminar about its positive experiences of being a Living Wage employer.

Sharing a platform with Louise Woodruff from the Joseph Rowntree Foundation and representatives from the Scottish Government, the business breakfast acted as a forum for companies to discuss how good, fair and innovative business practice benefits society as a whole.

Queen’s Award for Enterprise-winning CMS Window Systems pioneered the adoption of the Living Wage in its sector back in 2015. This step was part of its long term strategy to be a socially, environmentally and economically sustainable business.

Chief Executive Officer David Ritchie said the company has never looked back from this: “The Living Wage is an overwhelmingly positive initiative when you consider the far-reaching benefits of ensuring that hard working individuals are fairly rewarded for the contribution they make to the success of a business.

“Employee satisfaction and engagement pay huge dividends in terms of productivity, loyalty, product quality and customer service, and these are the key areas that we have gained a competitive edge. For us it’s a win-win.”

CMS Window Systems is the only window, door and curtain walling manufacturer and installer to sign up to the Scottish Business Pledge, which dovetails its own ethos and strategy.

This Scottish Government initiative is a values-led partnership between Government and business, which aims to boost productivity, competitiveness, sustainable employment, and workforce engagement and development.
