At Be Caring, our culture is so important to us. We live and breathe our values, so kindness, compassion, and dedication are key qualities we look for in our future carers – not just previous experience!
Skills and know-how can be taught (which is where our brilliant training schemes come in!) but the fundamentals of what it takes to be an incredible care worker come naturally.
You can learn more about our Be Caring values here.
Like the people we care for, our care and support workers are all individuals, with their own unique personalities, and skills but some of their brilliant qualities include:
Our strapline is ‘Shaping the Future of Social Care’ and as an employee-owned organisation, our colleagues are more than just employees, they are co-owners of the organisation and central to helping us transform the sector. We recognised that in order to achieve this, we needed to value our workforce.
Wherever possible, we offer better terms and conditions to improve the lives of our colleagues, develop and retain good people. We took the decision to implement shift pay for Care Workers in our Leeds homecare service 3 years ago, employing all Care Workers at their contracted hourly rate for the full time they are out at work including all contact time, travel time, and training.
Across almost all our services we pay colleagues on a shift basis, paying people for the full-time they are out at work. We are working with all commissioners to contract services in such a way that enables us to value our workforce.
We are a people-first organisation, without shareholders and no debt to service, which means we reinvest surpluses back into our workforce, recognising and rewarding their contribution and commitment. Our standard benefits include:
That’s right – we’ve won awards recently for our fantastic business culture, and also for our work as sector leaders.
