A Review of the Scottish Business Pledge announced

The Minister for Employment has announced a short review of the Scottish Business Pledge. This is in response to the survey report that was published yesterday (27 March), which highlighted the case for increased awareness of the Pledge and greater support for Pledge businesses working to meet more of the Pledge elements.

Ministers remain absolutely committed to the Business Pledge and want the review to focus on how it might evolve in order to increase uptake and impact, and provide better support for our existing Pledge companies. The Real Living Wage is at the heart of the Business Pledge and that will not change.
