Oakland Care has been named as a ‘Top Employer’ for the third time in a row in this year’s Top Employers UK list.
The Top Employers Institute certifies organisations based on the results of their HR Best Practices Survey, which looks at topics such as people strategy, work environment, talent acquisition, learning, wellbeing, and diversity. Over 1,800 Top Employers in 123 countries are certified by the Institute.
Oakland’s standout employment initiatives include its innovative Assistant Practitioner Programme, which has been developed with the aim of upskilling current and future care teams through the delivery of development opportunities. According to Oakland, the programme is not only supportive of its nursing teams, helping to improve the quality of care delivered to residents, but ultimately also helps team members to achieve their professional and personal aspirations.
Oakland Care CEO Joanne Balmer said: “I am extremely proud that we have received this prestigious accreditation for an incredible third year in a row. Across Oakland Care we have developed an appealing work structure and support system that allows people to thrive. We recognise the important connection that exists between the delivery of outstanding care to our residents, and the cultivation of an outstanding environment for our team members that grants opportunities for them to develop and flourish in their careers.”
