We know that the way we do things has an impact on people, whether its energy customers, those who work for us or those who live in the communities that we operate in. In recognition that SSE has a deeply interconnected relationship with the society it relies on to operate and make a profit, we aim to conduct our business in a way that contributes positively and shares value. This means creating a fair and inclusive place to work and giving back to our local communities.

Fairness at Work
In 2016, SSE was the first large corporate business in the Republic of Ireland to become a Living Wage employer. The Living Wage is designed to make possible a minimum acceptable standard of living. Although not mandatory,as part of its commitment to being a responsible employer, SSE believes guaranteeing its employees at least a Living Wage is the right thing to do.
SSE has been a proud Living Wage accredited employer in Northern Ireland since 2013, meaning our employees – and increasingly our contractors – earn an hourly rate that exceeds the UK living wage.
