Warwickshire based charity WCS Care has been recognised for its effective leadership and management at a national awards ceremony.
The care home group, which was the first to achieve five CQC ‘outstanding’ ratings, scooped the Skills for Care award for ‘most effective approach to leadership and management’.
Christine Asbury, WCS Care’s chief executive, said: “Having an effective approach to leadership and management helps ensure that every day is well lived for residents, so we’re delighted with the recognition from Skills for Care.
“Our care is only as good as the people who deliver it, so it’s vital for us to make sure that teams have the support, freedom and confidence they need to provide consistently high quality care and create those moments that mean the world to the people living in a WCS Care home.
“Whether it’s through our values – play, be there, make someone’s day and choose your attitude – or just having the courage to be curious and ask ‘why not?’, we’re always striving for continuous improvement and we’re not afraid to try new ways of doing things.”
The honour recognises employers who demonstrate how their leaders and managers drive the vision, values and direction of the organisation, how they’re supported in their role, and how they identify and recruit managers.
Supported by a creative and value-based culture, WCS Care uses a ‘bedside to boardroom’ approach so that management is strongly connected and engaged with frontline staff, helping to ensure that every day is well lived for residents.
