Springhill Care Group is introducing a new uniform following a consultation with staff and stakeholders.
Results from the consultation found that 84.6% of respondents felt uniforms created a professional identity with 70.2% wanting each job role to be reflected in a different uniform and colour.
Virginia Perkins, Associate Director for People and Organisational Development at Springhill Care Group, said: “At Springhill Care Group we pride ourselves on our employee engagement by making sure we listen and respond to our workforce.
“Staff representatives specifically requested that Springhill’s board considered the provision of new name badges and uniforms, so we set out to learn what the best approach would be for everyone involved.
“This is another example of how we are committed to continuous improvement, for staff as well as residents and family members.”
Birch Green Care Home in Skelmersdale will be the first to adopt the new style, which will be rolled out across the group shortly, with Springhill Care Home in Accrington the next in line. New name badges have already been introduced.
Springhill Care Group operates three care homes, Springhill in Accrington, Birch Green in Skelmersdale and Riversway in Bristol.
