Four Seasons Health Care is pleased to announce it was voted 'Residential Care Provider of the Year' at the 2013 HealthInvestor Awards. The judging panel, consisting of fifteen industry experts, praised the company for its recent growth and approach to workforce development, positioning it as a top employer in the UK health care sector.
Four Seasons was able to highlight various talent development programmes in order to successfully differentiate itself from other providers in the category. In depth descriptions and proven outcomes from newly implemented initiatives such as 'Senior Nursing Care Assistant', 'Preceptorship Framework' and the 'Developing Potential Programme' helped to beat competition from the likes of Balhousie Care Group, Care UK and PJ Care.
The judging panel was impressed by the company's 16 new promotions through the 'Developing Potential Programme', as well as the 43% conversion of participants to new roles and challenges within the organisation. Judges were also encouraged by the smoother and faster integration of nurses into their roles via an 18-month preceptorship framework unveiled in March 2012, which includes undertaking bespoke qualifications in health and social care. In addition the 'Senior Nursing Care Assistant' programme has seen 170 individuals become employed as SNCAs with 161 more enrolling on the course.
On behalf of the Four Seasons team, James Poletyllo, Group Director of Management Development, commented: "It was a pleasure to celebrate our own achievement and those of others within the industry on what is the biggest night in the independent health care calendar."
"The team and I are proud of the expansion Four Seasons has witnessed in the last 18 months, and we intend to continue along this upward trajectory."
