Home Instead Senior Care, a company specialising in care for older people in their own homes in Glasgow South, has been honoured with a 5 Star Employer Award.

The accolade of 5 Star Employer was awarded by WorkBuzz, an independent company which conducted surveys with Home Instead’s caregivers and staff.

In response to the independent survey, one caregiver employed by Home Instead Glasgow South said, “I have always wanted to help people and when I got the job at Home Instead I didn’t know what to expect.

“I can honestly say the company, and staff were so welcoming to me and the clients were so lovely. Working with all types of people was sometimes a challenge but the end result is always an amazing experience. Each person has different needs and I have learned a lot and best of all I have friendships which is great. I love my job and Home Instead. This was definitely the best move in my career.”

Home Instead’s caregivers and employees are given access to award-winning training programmes which have been accredited by both City & Guilds and endorsed by the Princess Royal Training Awards. Employees are given opportunity for career progression and are part of a supportive valued-led team, meaning that great care is delivered to clients.

Steven Frost, CEO of WorkBuzz said “The biggest challenge facing many organisations is recruiting and retaining the best talent. We would like to congratulate Home Instead Senior Care for its high levels of employee engagement. Its positive culture means that most employees are proud to work there, would choose to stay even if they were offered a similar job elsewhere, and are highly motivated.”

Commenting on the recognition her company has received, Tasnim Rehman, owner of Home Instead Senior Care, said, “There’s a lot more to our culture than the way we care for our clients, we genuinely care about our staff too and are incredibly proud to have achieved a 5 Star Employer Award.

“This recognition means so much because it was awarded as a result of feedback from our employees. Person centred home care is our business and this acknowledgement proves that it works, not only for our clients, but for our caregivers too.”
