Best Company recognition for Home Instead

We are delighted that, once again, our National Office has been recognised as one of the best places to work having earned 3-star accreditation from Best Companies; an organisation working to build better workplaces.

The recognition focuses on the 70 plus team who work at our National Office in Warrington, Cheshire – the nerve centre of our operation that supports our franchise network of 226 local offices across the UK.

The 3-star accreditation is the highest achievable and means that we have achieved ‘world class’ levels of engagement in the team.

Ours is very much a ‘people’ business, however you look at it. Without great people, without great employee engagement, without outstanding support it would not be possible to deliver our high-quality care service.

Commenting on the news, our People Director, Karen Dakin said, “We are delighted to achieve the Best Companies 3-star accreditation. It is great recognition of how connected we are as a team at Home Instead in achieving our vision of changing the face of ageing.

“We are very proud of the team; they have been amazing, and we truly thank everyone for their outstanding commitment especially through lockdown and remote working.”

We aspire to be recognised as a company that people aspire to work for, with or recommend and this accreditation tells us we are making great progress towards that.

Adding to Karen’s comments, our CEO, Martin Jones said, “I am really proud that we have been awarded a ‘world class’ 3-star rating. As a mission-led business we all share a common-purpose and this feeds in to our culture and everything we do as a team.

“The last year has been challenging for everyone in the team. To achieve world class levels of engagement, this year more than ever, bears testament to our team spirit and the support we give each other.

“It’s fair to say that the pandemic has drawn the best out of us. Well done everyone.”
