Best Employer Award for Sixth Year Running

Home Instead Basingstoke has been declared a ‘5 star’ employer yet again, for 2021, showing that care is a worthwhile career path to take. In an independent survey our employees have commended the company, for factors such as top-quality training opportunities and supportive leadership, for the sixth consecutive year.

As part of a national survey, all our employees were invited to provide detailed but anonymous feedback by independent employee engagement experts WorkBuzz. We are delighted to have received an impressive employee engagement score of 93, a rating that few companies achieve.

Areas that employees were asked about included initial training and subsequent career development, support throughout the Covid pandemic, the general relationship with their managers, and their day-to-day caring responsibilities.  We emerged with flying colours !

The result was that the team overwhelmingly praised us for being a supportive employer, for which we are immensely grateful.  It’s a great honour to be recognised again as a ‘5 star employer’, particularly in light of yet another challenging year for our caregivers.  

As a care business, we recognise that the best care will be provided to clients by employees who themselves feel cared for and supported – this is part of our ethos, and is key to the provision of the best quality care to our clients.  We aim to set an example of good employment practices, and to demonstrate what working in care can be like.   

It is our fantastic team of caregivers who make it possible for older adults to retain their independence by continue living at home whilst supported with the care they need.   

Steven Frost, CEO of WorkBuzz, commented “At WorkBuzz, we’re passionate about improving people’s working lives. We created this award to recognise the best workplace cultures where employees are proud to work, are motivated to do more, and want to stay for the foreseeable future. We’ve loved working with Home Instead Basingstoke who truly care about their employees’ experience and have worked hard to ensure they create a culture where their people can thrive.”
