Sunrise Senior Living UK’s Reward Team have been nominated for a prize at the prestigious Inspiring Wellbeing Awards taking place on 20th February.
The Reward Team have been nominated for the Inspiring Wellbeing Award for the Workplace, as a result of their dedication to the wellbeing of all team members at Sunrise, and the caring advice and support they continuously provide so that team members can strike a healthy work-life balance.
Inspired by their motto “Sunrise Healthy Living, Care for You as You Care For Others”, the benefits offered by the Reward Team include an employee assistance programme, occupational health, an annual flu vaccination programme, opticians support, and access to hospital cash plans.
The commitment of the Sunrise Reward Team to wellbeing has been demonstrated through a number of enterprising initiatives and events. In 2016, Sunrise began a partnership with Wellbeing People to put on Wellbeing Health Check Roadshows at all of its UK communities. This was followed in 2017 with a roadshow focused on Cholesterol, Blood Glucose, and Lung health.
The dedicated wellbeing support offered by Sunrise is evidenced by the positive feedback expressed by team members in annual engagement surveys. There has been a clear correlation between enhanced wellbeing initiatives and positive increases in the Stress, Balance & Workload category.
Sunrise Senior Living UK has over 5000 team members, all of whom are committed to providing the highest standards of personalised care to residents, across dementia care, nursing care, and assisted living.
Suzanne Foody, Benefits Advisor at Sunrise Senior Living UK, said:
“We are absolutely delighted to have been nominated for an Inspiring Wellbeing Award, which highlights the great work our Reward Team have been doing to strengthen the wellbeing of all team members.
“Our team members strive every single day to enhance the lives and happiness of residents at Sunrise communities, so it is vital we ensure they have the best possible environment to work in, and that we support them all the way.
“We are looking forward to continuing our exciting programme of wellbeing events and activities over the coming months and years, and working alongside our team members to ensure Sunrise is a fulfilling and rewarding place to work.”
