The Glenwood Salon is not only the first hairdressing salon to be accredited as a living wage employer in Glenrothes but also in Scotland. A family-run business which has been trading for over 30-years the salon became accredited because they recognised their staff needed and deserved more than a minimum wage.
The Glenwood Salon received accreditation as a Living Wage employer in 2019. By paying the real Living Wage the salon is committing to raising wages fairly and protecting their staff. The salon is also a member of the Action Group to Make Glenrothes a Living Wage Town and is leading the way in the community by encouraging other employers to follow their example.
Owner, Brent Burnett said: “I'm very proud and delighted to find out that we are the first hairdressing salon to be accredited as a Living Wage employer in Scotland. Becoming accredited has been a natural next step in demonstrating to my staff that they are valued for the work they do.
I feel strongly about my local community, with both my customers and staff living locally I feel the business is firmly rooted here in Glenwood. By being accredited by Living Wage Scotland I not only benefit the staff, but the whole community. If I have happy staff I know I will have happy customers.”
