“We will address the training provided to care assistants in house and externally. We feel the training is lacking many elements and is not given in a educational and standardized way. This means there are flaws in the training and some care assistants are receiving a higher or lower quality of training and awareness”
Here we provide you with guidance for your staff and colleagues. We advise care providers to implement the best range of tools and resources for their team to gain better motivation and production. Staff who are given the best equipment will use it to their ability and be proud of the work they achieve because of this.
Do you provide your staff with rewards?
We encourage both employees and employers to find suitable rewards for their work place, group or community within their area. Rewards are small perks we all deserve to be able to access. Providing staff with the opportunity to apply for external rewards if they do not have one to offer. Or consider teaming up with a local company to provide discounted hot drinks, or gym access for your employees. It promotes good physical and mental health and increases retention within the sector.

If you already provide your staff with perks we want to hear from you. We want to know if they are being promoted correctly, used to the employees advantage and are beneficial to your staff.
