    Do Assurant pay a living wage?

    Most people are not paid a living wage.

    How we know this

    80% of people say they are paid below the Real Living Wage for where they live.

    Based on data from 10 people who took the Breakroom Quiz between January 2021 and September 2022.

    Why this matters

    Everyone should be paid enough to live on.

    The rates are now £10.90 per hour, and £11.95 per hour in London.

    Employers are expected to implement the rise as soon as possible but by the latest 14 May 2023.

    On the 14 May 2023, employers’ Breakroom scores will be updated to reflect this.
