Home Instead Senior Care has been recognised as a 5 Star Employer by WorkBuzz, as a result of positive feedback from their employees In June 2019, WorkBuzz invited all Home Instead Senior Care’s CAREGivers and Key Players to provide confidential feedback about their experience working for Home Instead Senior Care, including the training and development on offer; the relationship with their manager and day-to-day responsibilities. As independent employee engagement specialists, WorkBuzz then verified the results. Home Instead Senior Care was awarded the WorkBuzz 5 Star Employer award in September, based on positive feedback from their employees. This demonstrates Home Instead Senior Care’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 Senior Care 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.” David Moore, Managing Director of Home Instead said: “We are absolutely thrilled to receive this award. It is recognition for the hard work the whole team do to be the very best employer we can. This tells us that what we are doing is working and encourages us to work harder on being ‘The Employer of Choice’ and continue improving people’s lives” Home Instead Senior Care Stockport
