Care UK has been announced as a finalist in the Best Employee Engagement category at the 2023 UK Employee Experience Awards.
Care UK fought off stiff competition to reach this stage of the awards and is up against other major employers for the category. The UK Employee Experience Awards recognise the best employers across all sectors to help raise the bar of global employers’ standards.
Care UK’s four key areas of focus for employee engagement last year impressed the judges. These included:
The 40th anniversary of Care UK, where team members spent 40 days working towards a fundraising target of £40,000 – which was exceeded by £3,000 – to be distributed among local charities important to each home, while support teams did the same for the Care Workers’ Charity. This included everything from a 400-mile bike ride – from Care UK’s oldest home to its newest – to abseiling, sponsored walks, runs and mountain climbs, and ‘80s themed parties.
Last year also saw a renewed focus on more efficient internal communication to colleagues across all homes. This means that Care UK can deliver more effective reminders about training, weekly ‘thank yous’, and important news and updates.
Levels of employee engagement and satisfaction continue to improve in a variety of ways, including training and career development – such as the Care-UK designed Deputy Home Manager and Home Manager programmes and supporting more than 700 colleagues on apprenticeship schemes. The number of benefits available to colleagues continues to increase, and last year the organisation successfully embedded around 2,300 new colleagues from 26 new homes into the positive and welcoming culture of Care UK.
The winners will be announced at a ceremony on 11th May in London.
