National care home operator, Maria Mallaband Care Group and Countrywide Care Homes are set to launch their first ever annual awards. With nominations commencing on 16th March 2015, the awards have been created to acknowledge the efforts of staff and the impact they have on the lives of residents and their families.
Residents, colleagues, relatives and visitors can nominate those within the organisation who they feel have shown a unique passion and willingness to go above and beyond to deliver first class service and the best quality care.
Finalists will then be invited to an awards presentation evening set to take place at the Royal Armouries in Leeds on Thursday 28th May 2015. The ceremony will consist of a drinks reception and dinner followed by the awards presentation and entertainment.
There are a total of nine categories available for nomination, as well as two special recognition awards. The award categories were intended to represent all areas across the business from awards for frontline staff such as ‘Dignity in Care’ and ‘Most Innovative Activity Programme’ through to ‘Behind the Scenes’ and ‘Head Office Hero’ for those who provide exceptional support to their colleagues.
Phil Burgan, Chairman & CEO says:
“I’m delighted to recognise the outstanding achievements of the high flyers amongst our staff.
Unfortunately the nature of the awards can’t reflect every deserving individual, but you all know who you are and you should be extremely proud of yourselves.
We are only as good as our staff. My job is to try to communicate our core values to every member of staff so that even the person with the most menial of jobs feels engaged and part of our family. It’s extremely difficult to do but hopefully these awards will go some way to thanking everyone for their hard work and commitment.
Ours is a tough profession, and it won’t get any easier in the future, but we’re here to be the best we can be. Thanks for everything.”
