Kare Plus Norwich scoops win at prestigious care awards
Kare Plus is delighted to announce that a member of our franchise network recently won the prestigious Best Care Employer award in The Great East of England Care Awards 2019. The team at Kare Plus Norwich have been in the franchise network since 2016 and are well known in their area – and across our network – for their commitment to supporting and enriching the lives of their staff members.
The Great East of England Care Awards are part of the Great British Care Awards, a series of nine regional awards celebrating excellence across the care sector. The purpose of the awards is to promote best practice within both home care and care home sectors and pay tribute to those individuals who have demonstrated outstanding excellence within their field of work.
Kare Plus is called ‘The Caring Company’ for a reason and it is our franchise owners across the network who best embody this philosophy. Great care starts at the top and only by supporting and caring for our staff members can we expect them to extend the same support to our customers up and down the country.
Franchise owner, Gordon Anderson supports healthcare staff through a number of initiatives including nominating a ‘Carer of the Month’, in-house training facilities and a staff-only resting area. With our support and guidance, you can inspire a team of healthcare staff to provide industry-leading support in your local area, much like Gordon does now. Gordon understands the importance of inspiring staff in a competitive industry:
“My focus is on making it easy for staff to stay, but difficult for them to leave. If you decide to join the franchise network, just focus on being THE local care company that people want to work for.”
Now in his fourth year of operating Kare Plus Norwich, Gordon has established his franchise as a reliable high-quality provider of homecare services and as a staffing provider for local healthcare establishments. Gordon credits his success in part to the Kare Plus opportunity:
“Having spent a number of years of managing and building businesses for other people, Kare Plus has given me the platform to grow my own business.”
Director of Regulated Services, Darren Guy oversees the development of homecare services in the Kare Plus network and was delighted to hear about Gordon’s award.
“I am immensely proud of our entire network and of Gordon for an ongoing commitment to supporting both customers and staff to the highest standards possible. We are ‘The Caring Company’ and it’s fantastic to see our franchise network not only embodying that sentiment, but building on it to inspire others.”
