Audley Care has offered enhanced contracts to all of its care staff. It has become one of the first UK providers to offer all 231 personal care assistants permanent contracts, which includes a contributory pension and benefits.
Paul Morgan, operations director of Audley said: “Our people are crucial to the service we offer our customers. Audley is committed to delivering the highest standards of care, and to do that we want to attract the best care staff available in the UK.
“We are therefore extremely pleased to be able to bring all of our care staff who want to onto permanent contracts. This is still highly unusual in the care sector and we hope that other providers follow suit. We also hope that, the better the conditions for our staff, the lower staff turnover will be, which will clearly benefit the continuity of care for our customers.
“Care is an important and rewarding career, which is why we invest heavily in training and career advancement through the Audley Care Training Academy which delivers a robust and personalised care training programme for all new employees. These new contracts are a further illustration of our complete commitment to our customers and staff.”
