As part of Employee Appreciation Day 2018, we asked some of our staff how they know they are appreciated by their teams.
My operations manager and my managing director are so supportive and tell me how very proud they are of what the team have accomplished. A simple thank you is enough for me.
Michelle Anstee, Branch Manager
I see the people we support smile, and I receive positive feedback from my line manager and others at Voyage Care.
Leanne Medhurst, Deputy Home Manager
I get a sense of belonging when I’m speaking to others in the business. My manager allows me to run with my ideas – I know she listens to me... My manager’s door is always open and I can speak to her 24/7.
Robert Brady, Head of Learning and Development
I have a very supportive service manager who is always supporting me with advice in how to fulfill my role and if I need any support I know it is there!
Lyndsay Wilburn, Senior Support Worker
I have a good rapport with the people we support and I know I’m appreciated by them as they love working with me.
Hannah Jackson, Support Worker
My personal welfare is always considered alongside my wish to deliver exceptional care.
Urvi Patel, Operations Manager
I get a lot of positive feedback from professionals and family along with the manager and staff.
Usman Hussain, Senior Support Worker
I can see it on the residents face. Their faces light up.
Mussarat Ahmed, Bank Worker
We are supportive of each other and have the time to support others in difficult times. We know we are appreciated through our close professional bond and being able to recognise when someone in the team is struggling and offering them additional support.
Staff Members, Scotia House
Because of the positive feedback I receive from resident’s family members and my colleagues. But also because of the smiles I see on the residents face when they see me.
Francesca Birch, Support Worker
