We are delighted and proud to announce that Be-IT has now signed up to the Scottish Business Pledge, a values-led partnership between the Scottish Government and business. 

Scottish Business Pledge

By signing up for the Pledge, we have committed to: 

  • Supporting sustainable business growth in Scotland.
  • A voluntary code of business practice to guide and boost the future development of our company.
  • A mutual pledge to ensure that prosperity, innovation, fairness and opportunity develop hand-in-hand in Scotland.

There are nine elements to the Pledge: 

Paying the Living Wage

Not using Zero Hours Contracts

Workforce Engagement

Diversity and Balanced Workforce

Investing in Youth




Prompt Payment

Companies wishing to join the scheme have to 

  • Ensure all employees (excluding Modern Apprentices and those under 18) are paid the Living Wage or above.
  • Choose at least two of the other Pledge elements which they are already delivering.
  • And finally, join the journey with other forward-thinking Scottish businesses – and with the Scottish Government and its partners – to take up the all the other commitments in due course to help bring your business to a different level.

We think this is a very worthwhile initiative and would encourage others to take part.  If you want more information, it’s available at this link.

* Given the nature of the recruitment industry there is very little chance of Be-IT taking the other pledge!
