National living wage - Resolution Foundation report 31 August 2016Open
A new report out by the Resolution Foundation: Rising to the challenge: early evidence on the introduction of the National Living Wage in the social care sector. SCIE's Ewan King is quoted in People Management magazine.
It is encouraging to see that care providers are making progress in introducing the NLW, despite financial pressures. It is important to learn and share examples of how some services and areas are managing the increase in wages more effectively than others. And crucially we need to manage this issue as an integrated health and care system.SCIE's director of business development and delivery, Ewan King
