Cornerstone launches bonus scheme and uncapped overtime

Specialist care provider Cornerstone Healthcare has announced a new bonus scheme offering up to 5 per cent bonus on all hours worked, including uncapped overtime.

The new annual bonus scheme will be rolled out to all nurses alongside a 5 per cent pay rise for day nurses, and an 8 per cent pay rise for night nurses. The latest pay increase puts the average nursing salary at Cornerstone at around £46,000.

Cornerstone CEO Johann van Zyl commented: “We are fortunate to be in a position to reward our staff in this way…but we are also not complacent about the scale of the recruitment and retention crisis.”

van Zyl also believes that staff shortages in care will get more acute in the coming months, as issues posed by Brexit, mandatory COVID vaccinations, and increased competition for employees post lockdown are challenged by increasing number of vulnerable adults needing care in the UK.
