Arran Resort is one of only two Scottish Hotels to make this move
Auchrannie Resort has announced that it will become a Real Living Wage Accredited Employer from 1 April 2018. This will see Auchrannie becoming one of only two hotels in Scotland to make this commitment.
All un-promoted staff aged 18 or over will receive the Real Living Wage of £8.75 per hour which
is significantly higher than the National Living Wage, of £7.83 (which applies only to those aged
25 and over).
Auchrannie have introduced this change after setting efficiency targets with the team last year.
As a result of the collective efforts of the whole team, we have been able to significantly improve
profitability through decreasing costs and wages.
Although the savings do not pay for the wage increases entirely we are confident that the
company will see additional benefits as a result. 93% of Living Wage Employers have seen
benefits. These include improved employee retention, improved reputation and better working
relationships between management and the rest of the team.
Auchrannie believes that the team on the shop floor are the foundation for Auchrannie’s success
and has therefore made this commitment to ensure that everyone takes home a fair pay for a
fair days work.
Linda Johnston, Managing Director said, “We are delighted to be able to make this commitment.
When combined with Auchrannie’s recent initiative in becoming Scotland’s first Employee Owned
hotel, this places Auchrannie in a very strong position to encourage young people to make a
career in the hospitality industry and helps us to attract the best people. In addition, we are
confident that the collective efforts of our fantastic team will continue to strengthen Auchrannie’s
customer care and community focus as well as improving the sustainability of the business going
