Harrogate Company Achieves 5 Stars For Second Year

We all know that happy staff make for a successful business and one local company is going the extra mile to ensure they are getting it right despite the challenges of the current pandemic and lockdown.

Home Instead Harrogate, Ripon and Thirsk who support and care for older people living in their own homes has been recognised as a 5 Star Employer by WorkBuzz for a second year , as a result of positive feedback from their employees.

In October 2020, WorkBuzz invited all Home Instead’s CAREGivers and Key Players to provide confidential feedback about their experience working for Home Instead, including the training and development on offer; the relationship with their manager and day-to-day responsibilities plus the support received during the pandemic.  As independent employee engagement specialists, WorkBuzz then verified the results.

The survey (completed anonymously) looked at various aspects of working for the company, who specialise in providing at-home care for older people, to ensure that CAREGivers feel valued and are happy in their work.

Home Instead Harrogate, Ripon and Thirsk was awarded the WorkBuzz 5 Star Employer award in December 2020, based on positive feedback from their employees. This demonstrates Home Instead’s  high levels of employee engagement, compared to other businesses of a similar size.

Steven Frost, CEO of WorkBuzz said “The biggest challenge facing many organisations is recruiting and retaining the best talent. We would like to congratulate Home Instead for its high levels of employee engagement. Its positive culture means that most employees are proud to work there, would choose to stay even if they were offered a similar job elsewhere, and are highly motivated.”

Speaking about the results, Sheena Van Parys, co-owner of Home Instead Harrogate, Ripon and Thirsk said, “It’s really important for us to understand what motivates our team and to make sure we have happy workers. If our CAREGivers aren’t happy then it’s unlikely that our clients will be, the survey confirmed 94% of our CAREGivers have access to training to do their job well and our recruitment process was rated 100%, plus 96% are proud to work for Home Instead and 100%  of our employees are confident that we will continue to take the right steps to see us through the current coronavirus pandemic. "    

With significant growth in the number of clients they serve, Home Instead currently have vacancies for CAREGivers in the local area.
