Care UK shortlisted for investment in training award
Care UK has been unveiled as the only care home provider in the country to be shortlisted for its dedication to employee training and development at the UK Employee Experience Awards.
The provider has been shortlisted in the 'Employee Training and Development – Empowering Programme' category; other finalists include TSB and Hitachi Capital.
The awards reward “outstanding initiatives that have improved the world of work leading to a better experience for customers and are open to any employer in the country – from banks to airlines,” said a Care UK spokeswoman.
“Judges recognised Care UK’s offering of clear career development opportunities, comprehensive inductions, apprenticeships and development programmes to nearly 11,000 employees working across 124 care homes nationwide,” she added.
Care UK human resources director Leah Queripel said: “We rigorously promote our development options so that colleagues know there are opportunities to progress, whatever role they start in, and to motivate those who are ambitious for their future.
“We do this by providing leadership development programmes, train the trainer programmes, internal leadership models and clearer career development in addition to a detailed new carer induction, buddy programmes and our sector-leading apprenticeship programme.”
The finalists will present their initiatives to the award judges and the winners will be announced at a virtual ceremony on 13 May.
