In 2016, we were the recipient of an inaugural Princess Royal Training Award. The brand new accolades from Princess Anne recognise organisations that demonstrate outstanding training and skills development programmes. In their very first year, the awards have been granted to a total of 34 businesses - major brands spanning healthcare, retail and manufacture alongside charities.
Launched by the City & Guilds Group in January 2016 – the awards honour employers that have created lasting impact by successfully linking their skills development needs to business performance.
We were thrilled to be the first home care provider to receive an award in the programme’s first year - with applications assessed across three ‘Hallmarks of Excellence’:
- Training and learning and development is integral to business performance
- The programme is delivered efficiently and effectively
- The programme has an impact on the success of the organisation and its people
Development and training at Home Instead
Our commitment to innovation runs root and branch throughout our national operation. A programme of ongoing training and career development underpins our approach to our 8,000 CAREGivers. They are the very backbone of our care model – providing 5 million hours of person-centred care in our clients’ homes each year.
