We know business shouldn’t have to solve the housing crisis, but it can certainly play a leading role in helping alleviate the impact on employees. Signing our Housing Pledges demonstrates your support.
The housing crisis affects all of us, whatever our income. The pricing out of young talent and the London workers who keep our city moving hurts all levels of society, and threatens London’s status as a beacon for creativity and enterprise.
Employers can pledge to help staff with financial support such as commuting costs or tenancy deposit schemes. They can commit to regular surveying of staff to assess and respond to housing needs, or even explore new means to help boost housing supply themselves.
You don’t need to be a large employer in order to pledge, but you do need to believe you can make positive changes within six months of signing up.
Our annual London Summer Business Lunch brings together the capital’s most influential people across government and business. We look forward to hearing key remarks from George Osborne, Editor of the Evening Standard, Chair of the Northern Powerhouse Partnership and former Chancellor of the Exchequer, on what’s next for our capital city.
