How we value our staff

We recognise that in order to deliver high quality care and value for money we need to attract and retain the highest quality staff.

We acknowledge that there is a national shortage of suitably qualified healthcare professionals and seek to overcome this via our recruitment and retention strategy.

Our Recruitment and Retention Strategy key areas are as follows;

  • to offer market competitive salaries and above market competitive salaries for key hard to fill roles
  • to provide specialist training to all new starters so they can meet the needs of the service user group and personally develop
  • the opportunity to progress their career within a small but growing organisation with ease of access to the senior management team
  • a personalised induction programme that ensures close supervision, appraisal and informal guidance is offered by a more experienced member of staff
  • higher staffing levels than benchmark service competitors improving working conditions
  • to develop a number of ‘Champion Roles’ where staff can receive additional specialist training relevant to the role
  • an employee reward scheme that promotes ‘going the extra mile’ for their colleagues and service users
  • a social events calendar to promote out-of-work support
