Almost half of Avery Healthcare’s workforce have signed up to a new benefits scheme launched in October.
Avery said 1,930 of its 4,200 employees had taken up its ‘Averyone’ reward and recognition programme.
Managing Director John Strowbridge (pictured) said: “Care operators have a responsibility to deliver the best possible care for the older generation. It’s not good enough just to meet guidelines; operators need to continuously strive to improve their buildings, services, and quality of care, and to do that they need to invest in their people as well.
“Our culture is something that we’re passionate about, and through Personal Group’s Hapi we can bring many things into one place; benefits, reward and recognition which all have a real impact on our employees and help packages to go even further.”
The programme is part of Avery’s wider employee wellbeing strategy to ensure staff feel recognised and appreciated.
The platform includes communications on general organisational news, as well as an internal magazine, to help keep staff up to date on what is happening in the business. Employees can also access information about specific training opportunities, and take up a range of discounts on travel, entertainment and everyday basic items.
The scheme, which is also available via an App, was launched via face-to-face communications and posters around Avery’s operating sites. Avery also sent out an e-shot to promote the App.
