Today my guest is Marie Hart who is Head of HR at Westgate Healthcare. I'd never interviewed someone in a HR role and Marie delivered! She shares some of the steps the company has taken to improve staff retention through different staff engagement initiatives. Everything she shares can be adapted into any care company and some of the ideas were even inspired by the podcast!
I especially loved the wellness fund that Westgate Healthcare have implemented that allows the staff to decide how they want to spend it, Marie shares why they felt this was important to put in place and what the results have been.
Don’t forget to check out our sponsor Sekoia who provide digital care planning for care homes. Their technology is person centred and incredibly simple to use. You’ll make fewer mistakes and save so much time I really recommend heading over to their website and checking them out.
Finally - follow and join in the conversation over on Twitter to keep up with all of the latest interviews and share your comments. It’s @CarePodcast.
As always, thank you for listening! Sophie
