We Have Listened to Our Care Workers!! Employee Engagement Role Launched.......
This year instead of sending Christmas cards, we've decided to spend £2000 to spread festive cheer!
We have asked our Care Workers and office teams to nominate service users who they feel would like a treat
or a gesture that would make a difference to them. So far, we have had some great ideas, from a new winter
coat, a toaster but others are as simple as a new book or some flowers.
We asked that nominations for gifts be of a modest value, so a break in Barbados is unlikely, put simply we just want the money to go further and hopefully make a difference to as many people as we can.
We provide care and support to over 1200 people every week, and we would like to spread some festive cheer amongst our Service Users.
We would like you to nominate those who you feel would benefit the most from a gift or gesture or that would make a difference to them. We’re setting £2000 aside for this we want to spread as much festive cheer to as many people as possible. Try and avoid high value nominations, (such as a holiday to Barbados, or an evening with Enrique Iglesias!) to enable us to do this.
Winter is well and truly here, with Christmas drawing ever closer. Whilst most of us are looking forward to spending some time with our families, this is usually the time of year where Care and Support workers are appreciated the most by our Service Users. We also know that some of our Service Users would appreciate an extra special gift for Christmas, so if you haven’t already responded to our Optimo Care Christmas Wish List, please do pass in your nominations to the office as soon as you can or tweet us @optimocare or #2kwishlist. I hope that you enjoy this month’s issue. Here’s to a peaceful and happy Christmas
We have had an exciting month at WarrenCare. In between all of the hard work, we have received some amazing feedback from you all in our recent Employee Survey, and also gave away an iPad Mini to one lucky member of staff. As reported in our WarrenCare News extra issue a couple of weeks ago, we also attended the Great British Care Awards Regional Finals in Manchester, news of which you can see inside this issue!
A fantastic time was had by all in attendance, and our huge congratulations to all the winners. Read on for more information and news about how our nominations fared at the awards. Enjoy this month’s issue!
