Certified Good Wages Choice Employer

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind (April 25, 2022) – LUNA is proud to announce that we are a Certified Good Wages Initiative Indianapolis employer of choice. Overseen by EmployIndy, the Good Wages Initiative (GWI) recognizes employers who pay a sustainable wage of a minimum of $18 per hour and offer health benefits to full-time employees. LUNA meets or exceeds the minimum pay and covers 75% of health insurance costs for all employees who opt in.

“Paying good wages and providing employer-sponsored health insurance provides businesses with critical advantages in today’s labor market, from reductions in turnover to increased productivity,” says Marie Mackintosh, EmployIndy’s chief strategy officer. “Employees experience reduced financial stress and improved health outcomes while the community benefits through increased buying power and overall job growth. Good Wages Initiative partner employers set themselves apart by publicly stating their commitment to ensuring Indianapolis has a vibrant economy that is good for businesses, good for workers, and good for the community.”

With Indianapolis’ competitive job market, LUNA recognizes the importance of supporting both current and future employees. By providing benefits and higher wages, LUNA is changing the culture to build a strong regional labor force and create a positive
community impact.

“LUNA has always been a company that values the whole lives of its staff including their ability to support and care of their physical and mental health. Earning a living wage and the ability to afford health coverage is critical to thriving at work and in all aspects of life,” says Marina Hadjioannou Waters, President of LUNA Language Services.
