IN HOME CARE HAS BEEN NOMINATED FOR BEST CARE EMPLOYER OF THE YEAR IN THE GREAT BRITISH CARE AWARDS
2 September 2019, Waterlooville, Hampshire
Nominations have also been made in 3 other categories: Best Care Team, Putting People First and Best Registered Manager
The Great British Care Awards have been running for 10 years. They are a series of regional events throughout the UK to celebrate excellence and best practice across the care sector. The 21 award categories apply to residential, home care, care workers, managers, teams and individuals who have had a significant impact within their statutory, independent or voluntary organisations. The 9 regional events will be held throughout November and the category champions will be awarded at the national finals in March 2020 at The ICC, Birmingham.
Best Employer Award Nomination
In Home Care was founded by Paul Reynolds and Claire Simmons. They had no previous care experience and were simply motivated to provide quality care and support not afforded to their own families. 7 years later, In Home Care employs 161 people across 3 branches and has achieved CQC ratings “Good” to ‘Outstanding”. In Home Care is positioned in the top 3% of domiciliary care agencies and in the last 3 years, in the ‘Top 10 & 20’ ‘Home Care Groups’ within the UK.
Unimpressed with the care training available for their employees, In Home Care’s ‘accredited training centre’ was founded. At a recent training course, attendees from across the country commented that In Home Care is very highly regarded within the sector and its reputation is growing. There are now further opportunities for employee growth as In Home Care began franchising this year with their first franchise opening this month.
The team feel valued and have said that they feel part of the “In Home Care family”. The confidence and faith placed in everyone encourages them to be the best they can. Client reviews and comments on the In Home Care Facebook page reinforce the reputation of In Home Care being a highly regarded employer, providing excellent opportunities for personal development.
Director of In Home Care, Claire Simmons said, “We are really proud to be nominated for this award. We recognized the need for quality care which meant paying well and educating to high standards, valuing and acknowledging employee’s contributions. We encourage team mentality; everyone needs to feel included. We have created a brand to represent a happy caring environment that the whole team feels part of. We introduced bespoke pin badges awarded for “outstanding service” which has motivated everyone along with bonuses, loyalty schemes, excellence certificates, birthday cards, loan assistance, motor repair discounts, well-being programs, open door policies and internal promotions. Our Christmas parties are greatly enjoyed by all carers, clients and office staff. We pride ourselves on our high staff retention rate”.
Joint Director, Paul Reynolds added, “We have an excellent team of qualified, hardworking and caring people who are integral to the ongoing success and reputation of In Home Care. To demonstrate our appreciation of their unwavering commitment, we have nominated them in the categories: Best Care Team, Putting People First and Best Registered Manager”
In Home Care has also entered the Caring UK Awards.
