Avery Healthcare has implemented a comprehensive employee engagement programme to better reward and recognise its 4,200 workforce.
Avery Healthcare is working with employee services business Personal Group to launch a benefits and recognition hub which takes a more holistic approach to engaging its employees. The scheme, named Averyone, aims to recognise employees for their contribution and ensure they feel appreciated for their hard work.
Personal Group’s Hapi technology is being used – an app that is a one stop shop for health and wellness products, salary sacrifice, discounts and rewards, employee insurance and communications.
Avery Healthcare operates 50 care homes with several new developments in progress.
Managing director John Strowbridge said: “Care operators have a responsibility to deliver the best possible care for the older generation. It’s not good enough just to meet guidelines – operators need to continuously strive to improve their buildings, services, and quality of care, and to do that they need to invest in their people as well.
“Our culture is something that we’re passionate about, and through Personal Group’s Hapi we can bring many things into one place – benefits, reward and recognition which all have a real impact on our employees and help packages to go even further.”
Steve Mason, business development director at Personal Group added: “We are delighted to work with Avery Healthcare. Employee engagement is of the utmost important and businesses today are realising that by rewarding and recognising staff, it can make a meaningful difference to workplace productivity and staff happiness.”
