Camden recognised by the Mayor of London as a Good Work Standard employer

Camden are pleased to be one of the first official Mayor’s Good Work Standard employers in London.

The Council is one of five London Councils who have received this accreditation as an early adopter of the Good Work Standard.

“This recognition from the Mayor serves as an important recognition of Camden’s commitment to its people. It also reflects the many ways in which the Council is striving for the best possible working conditions for its employees.”
Councillor Richard Olszewski, Cabinet Member for Finance & Transformation

By signing up to the Mayor’s Good Work Standard, Camden commits to a healthy, fair and inclusive workplace. This is an important step in attracting and retaining a diverse, talented and successful workforce and the Council hopes to assist other businesses within Camden in realising these benefits.

The Good Work Standard has a set of criteria covering fair pay and conditions, wellbeing, skills and progression, and diversity and recruitment. It has been developed in collaboration with London's employers, trade unions and professional bodies and sets the benchmark the Mayor wants every London employer to achieve, including paying all staff at least the London Living Wage, currently £10.55 an hour.
