We feel very proud that the Home Instead Network has recently been awarded the Princess Royal Training Award
This brand new award from Princess Anne is for organisations that have developed outstanding training and skills development programmes.
In this first year, awards have been made to 34 businesses - which are major companies across health care, retail and manufacture as well as some charities.
At the Welwyn & Hatfield Office, we are thrilled to be part of the network that is the first home care provider to receive an award. Applications are assessed across three ‘Hallmarks of Excellence’:
- Training and learning and development is integral to business performance
- The programme is delivered efficiently and effectively
- The programme has an impact on the success of the organisation and its people
We are particularly pleased to see our name along side other recipients such as Mercedes, Unipart, IBM, Asda and Thomas Cook.
The Princess’ award follows news earlier this year that we also received a Queens Award for Enterprise which recognises the innovation that our unique model brings to people in need of care at home.
Home Instead now employs 8,000 part time CAREGivers across the UK who are the very backbone of our care model – providing 5 million hours of person-centred care so they all deserve the very best training, exemplified by our induction programme and our City and Guilds approved Alzheimer's and Dementia Care Training.
Chris Jones, the City & Guilds Group Chief Executive said:
“Excellence doesn’t happen by chance. Employers must align investment in training to the objectives of their business. Whether they’ve addressed a skills gap, improved productivity or developed new leaders....., the awarded organisations deserve to be recognised for their achievements.”
Local office owner, Heather said:
“We truly care about our employees and are committed to their training and development. This gives them confidence in their jobs knowing they provide the very best care and our Clients know that they are in safe hands."
