Greensleeves Care’s Broadlands care home in Oulton Broad, Suffolk has been awarded Platinum Investors in People status.
Investors in People credits organisations that lead, support and develop their workforces, and Broadlands not only achieved the highest possible award, but the home’s online survey score was higher than any other care home in the UK within the same size band.
The home’s low staff turnover was highlighted in the report, ensuring a cohesive team, as well as providing familiarity and routine for residents. Turnover was highlighted as “extremely low, with 50% of your staff having been with you for 5 years or longer. 31% of those people had been with you 10 years or longer”.
Other key indicators that resulted in the Platinum Award included excellent management, career progressions opportunities and support during the COVID-19 lockdown periods.
The report stated: “People loved working at your home, and it was often brought up that the way that people were consistently recognised and appreciated was a stand-out feature of working at Broadlands.”
Broadlands’ Manager, Anne Maas, said: “I am over the moon that Broadlands has achieved Platinum Investors in People status. Our staff work tirelessly and selflessly to give our residents the best quality care, so it’s lovely for them to have this wonderful recognition.”
