Care UK takes bronze medal in national employee awards
Leading care home operator Care UK has won a bronze medal at the UK Employee Experience Awards under the Employee Training and Development category.
The awards are open to all types of business and Care UK shared the top three slots with the bank TSB and the London and North East Railway company.
Care UK was the only social care provider to win in this year’s Employee Experience Awards.
This is the second year that Care UK’s commitment to its employees has been recognised at the same awards – in 2020 it picked up a silver award in the Best Company to Work For category.
“We are incredibly proud to have our approach to developing our colleagues recognised in this way. We have a strong ‘grow your own’ ethos and a great many of our home managers and directors have developed their career paths from team member through to their current senior role thanks to the development opportunities we offer,” said human resources Director Leah Queripel.
“I truly believe that this recognition reflects the fact that society is finally realising that social care offers a great career for people who want to learn valuable skills as well as make a difference to the lives of older people. And, for those who aspire to climb a career ladder to a very senior level, we can help people to make that happen through our leadership development programmes,” she added.
Care UK cares for around 6,500 residents in 124 homes.
