Only weeks after Sunrise was named the best care home provider in the country for residential care based on Care Quality Commission (CQC) ratings, the group’s Reward Team has been nominated for the ‘Best Alignment of Benefits to Business Strategy’ at the Employee Benefit Awards.
This follows Sunrise winning the ‘Most Motivational Benefits’ award in 2017.
In achieving their nomination, Sunrise had to demonstrate the effectiveness of their overall strategy, which is focused on high quality care and benefiting all residents and team members, as well as their innovations, and the successful results this has produced.
Sunrise can point to the way its employee benefits have reduced the turnover of team members, enhanced employee engagement and productivity, and raised the overall performance of the care home provider.
The annual awards, now in their 16th year, recognise talent and achievement in the employee benefits industry, and those organisations which have made a difference through their reward strategies. This year’s ceremony will take place on Friday 8th June at The Pavilion at The Tower of London.
Sunrise has 25 communities throughout the UK, and also runs 20 additional homes under Gracewell Healthcare, all providing high-quality care to residents, tailored to a range of individual needs.
Suzanne Foody, Benefits & Reward Manager at Sunrise Senior Living UK, said:
“We are absolutely delighted to have been nominated for an Employee Benefits Award for the third year in a row.
“This highlights the great importance we place on employee happiness and fulfilment, which ultimately benefits all Sunrise communities and Gracewell homes and enhances the care we provide for residents.
“We are very excited about the awards ceremony in June, and will continue doing all we can to make Sunrise and Gracewell a great place for team members to work and residents to live.”
