Work can – and should – be a reliable route out of poverty. But with many living in poverty, and the cost of living rising, a percentage of your workforce could be struggling to cope.
Poverty affects people differently, and it’s not always easy for employers to spot. That’s why we've teamed up with the Joseph Rowntree Foundation to raise awareness of in-work poverty and encourage you, as an employer, to help loosen poverty’s grip.
This guide explains what in-work poverty is, who it affects, how it affects us and what employers can do to help people out of it.
