“Technology is changing the way the world works, yet it’s our people who are the true change makers. The creative, the innovative, and those who never give up in the pursuit of the extraordinary. We all care deeply about the promise of technology and how we can use it to make lives better at work and in our communities. The next two decades are going to see a stark shift in the way the world interacts with technology, and it’s exciting to be at the forefront of it all.”

Rob Dance, CEO

ROCK are passionate about doing the right thing. The right thing by their staff, their clients and their communities. They firmly believe that their team deserve a wage which, at the very least, meets their everyday needs: one that they, and their families, can live on.

Paying the Living Wage is not just the right thing to do however, it makes good business sense. They only employ exceptional people at ROCK and being a Real Living Wage accredited employer will help them to attract and retain the very best talent.

At ROCK we’ve always paid at least the real Living Wage, however, our team are incredibly proud to have gained official accreditation. As we are a business who is constantly growing, and always looking to innovate, we’re pleased that we are now able to add Real Living Wage accreditation to our long list of company benefits and awards.

We know that the last year has been tough for many of us, not least due to the economic impact of the Covid-19 pandemic: all of us at ROCK feel it’s extremely important, now more than ever, to shine a light on the importance of employing people at a rate that allows them to adequately support their loved ones. As a business it’s the least we can do.

The tech industry is ever-changing: innovation and sector expertise are key. We’d wholeheartedly recommend paying the Living Wage though to any, and all companies, as a guarantee of ensuring you can attract the best talent who have the skills, passion and loyalty to stay at the top of their game.
