Home Instead is crowned ‘5-star employer.’

We at Home Instead Newcastle under Lyme and Stoke on Trent have been declared a ‘5-star’ employer, showing that care is a worthwhile career path to take. Home Instead employees have commended the company due to factors such as top quality training opportunities and supportive leadership.

All Home Instead employees were invited to take part in an anonymous survey by independent employee engagement experts WorkBuzz. We are delighted to have received an impressive employee engagement score of 95%, a rating that few companies achieve.

Areas that employees were asked about included the career development on offer, the relationship with their managers and their day-to-day responsibilities.

The owners of Home Instead Newcastle under Lyme and Stoke on Trent, Paul and Sandra Edden, are calling for more people to come on board and join the team who have praised the company for being a supportive employer. There are ten Care Professional vacancies on offer for people who want to begin or further a career in care.

In addition to the Care Professional vacancies, there will be further opportunities for North Staffordshire residents as Home Instead has partnered with locally-based Acacia Training to launch a comprehensive and unique professional care workers training programme. The Professional Care Pathway has been designed to transform how home care workers are perceived, raising standards and providing professional qualifications to degree level and beyond.

Paul says, “It’s an honour to be recognised as a ‘5-star employer’, particularly in light of yet another challenging year for our Care Professionals. For many people, care isn’t a career route they consider. But we’re an example of a care company that will support you from day one and offer training and development opportunities to develop your career.

“Our team of Care Professionals make it possible for older adults to stay living at home yet receive the care they need. If you’re interested in joining this team, we’d love to hear from you whether you have previous experience in care or not.”

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 Newcastle under Lyme and Stoke on Trent, who truly care about their employee’s experience and have worked hard to ensure they create a culture where their people can thrive.”
