DUSA is proud to announce that it has been named a finalist for the prestigious Real Living Wage Scotland Award. This esteemed accolade recognizes organisations committed to fair and ethical employment practices, aligning with DUSA’s dedication to fostering an inclusive and supportive environment for its staff.

The Real Living Wage is a voluntary hourly rate set independently and calculated based on the cost of living, ensuring that individuals can meet their basic needs.

Expressing delight at this recognition, Cheryl-Ann Cruickshank, CEO at DUSA, stated, “DUSA staff play a key role in supporting students to come together, socialise, be part of clubs and societies, learn, volunteer, work and access advice, guidance and support. These services and supports enable students to pursue their ambitions and maximise their individual and collective impact. To be shortlisted as a finalist for this award is a testament that our staff, many of whom are students themselves, have made a significant contribution to championing the real living wage and encouraging other organisations in Dundee to get on board to make Dundee a real living wage city.”

DUSA recognises the importance of fair compensation in creating a positive work environment and believes that paying the Real Living Wage is a crucial step towards achieving this goal. The organization is grateful for the opportunity to participate in the award process and remains steadfast in its commitment to promoting fair wages and ethical employment standards. This recognition serves as a motivation for DUSA to continue its efforts in creating an inclusive and equitable workplace for all.
