Team at Westgate Healthcare welcome ‘Westgate Wellness’ scheme
Westgate Healthcare introduce a new staff wellness scheme to recognise the hard work and dedication of the entire team.
Westgate Healthcare, a family-owned and run care group with eight care homes across Hertfordshire, Buckinghamshire and Essex, has launched a new initiative to celebrate the staff working across the homes by introducing the ‘Westgate Wellness’ scheme.
The new wellness scheme is part of the employment benefits currently being offered by Westgate Healthcare, and these also include: staff funds for personal celebrations, themed events like pizza and curry parties, exercise classes, long service awards, ‘Refer a Friend’ rewards, excellent induction and training, support in achieving additional qualifications, childcare vouchers, Perkz discount scheme, and a work buddy for the first 6 months to make sure new starters are welcomed with open arms.
Sita Patel, Managing Director at Westgate Healthcare, said:
“At Westgate Healthcare we pride ourselves on offering a working environment that is inclusive, supportive and rewarding for all our staff. We have worked alongside our Home Managers to make sure our teams are given the tools to be able to provide the highest level of care, whilst working in an environment where they feel valued and listened to.
“We understand that having a wellness scheme that benefits everyone that works for Westgate Healthcare will help us to attract the right people, with the right values, behaviours and attitudes to work in adult social care. It’s important that our staff enjoy the time they spend within our homes as this will be reflected in the standard of care and the atmosphere that is delivered for our residents.”
