Weekly Roundup: Another Exemplary Employer!
Here at Carer Positive we feel that 2020 has got off to a great start with organisations moving up to Established and Exemplary level awards. By doing this, these organisations are showing a real commitment to their staff who have caring responsibilities, creating an normalising a culture of support that really works.
This week we had the pleasure of presenting Phoenix Group with their Exemplary award; Sue travelled through to Edinburgh on Monday to meet with the team and present the certificate. From our work with the group, it has become clear that they are clearly committed to promoting the health and wellbeing of all employees and that the Group has worked really hard to develop and embed a strong culture of support for carers. We feel that Phoenix Group has an excellent approach in how they support their colleagues to manage work and caring responsibilities, and sets a great example to other employers. Well done to everyone involved!
We also appeared on Third Force News with a guest blog about the Carer Positive scheme and awards. This collaboration was done as part of the run up to us exhibiting at The Gathering next week where we hope to get the chance to speak to lots of representatives from third sector organisations. Check out the blog here and pop over to see us at Stand 84 if you are at The Gathering next week - we would love to see you face and have a chat!
