A Month Of Rewards And Gratitude For Care Home Staff

Employees of Essex care home group Holmes Care Group have been honoured for their hard work and dedication throughout the year during a Staff Appreciation Month which ended last week.

The staff appreciation event was introduced by the company to demonstrate to employees just how much they are valued. Since its launch, the initiative has become so popular across the Group that employees are coming up with new ideas to make each year even more special and rewarding.

A series of special raffles were held throughout the month to recognise long standing employees, outstanding contribution to the group, management, frontline staff and more.

The month ended with a final grand prize draw where the Groups 1,200 employees were entered to win some amazing prizes like a week’s extra annual leave, Ipads, flat screen TV’s, £500 travel vouchers and spa breaks, to name a few.

Prizes were donated by the Group and their valued suppliers who wanted to be a part of their special initiative, with brands like Brakes, CommsGas, Balmoral and Rotowash all donating some amazing prizes to the event.

Alison Price, Manager of Three Towns Care Home, who won the Managers Award which included a spa weekend and extra days’ annual leave said “I am so lost for words, it’s very much appreciated, I just think I was trying to do my job.”

Katy McVerry of Beechwood Care Home who won an Ipad in the grand prize draw said “I am absolutely delighted to have won an Ipad, it still hasn’t really sunk in that it’s mine!”
