10 Jul 2012
Premier social care service provider Precious Homes Ltd is proud to announce that it has been successful yet again in its Investors in People Accreditation Review for its on-going commitment to best practice in people and business management.
Investors in People is a globally recognised framework which sets out the highest levels of people management practice. To achieve this accreditation, the Precious Homes Ltd team were surveyed about their company strategies for improved business practices to determine how these aspects would be supported within the overall values of the company. Precious Homes Ltd first achieved IIP accreditation in 2002 and this is their third successful review.
Managing Director of Precious Homes Ltd, Mitesh Dhanak, said,
“We are delighted to receive this accreditation as it reflects our commitment to our outstanding workforce which is extremely important to our development as an innovative social care business. Social care work can at times be very challenging and it’s important that we provide our staff with a supportive working environment and we actively encourage, support and reward an individual’s needs in a number of ways, often resulting in significant career development.”
John Telfer, Managing Director of Inspiring Business Performance Ltd (IBP), the Investors in People Centre for London and the South, commented: “This award is a celebration of both management and staff learning from each other and collaborating together to create an efficient and enjoyable working environment. I look forward to hearing about further success and award recognition from Precious Homes Ltd in the future.”
Precious Homes Ltd has many long standing employees who work across 14 projects in total providing an extensive range of specialist care services to adults and young people with learning difficulties, autism, physical disability, mental health needs, personality disorders and challenging behaviour. The company prides itself on recognising those who show commitment to improve delivery of care and support within their team. As Michael Scott, Registered Manager of Ulysses House care home in Birmingham, explains:
“I joined the company in 2007 as a Team leader with an NVQ3 In care, and was accredited an award in behaviour management, and in the five years that I have worked for the company I have received a lot of training to help my personal development.
“I was promoted to Acting Manager and received a lot of mentoring from Mitesh Dhanak and the senior management, this has helped my self-confidence and knowledge base within the care sector. In May 2011, I successfully applied and received Registered Manager status, and I’m currently enrolled on an S/NVQ Level 5 diploma in Health and Social care. I was recently recognised for my commitment to care partnered with my strong leadership skills making it as a finalist in the Great Western Midland care Awards 2011. I firmly believe that the support that I have received from Precious Homes Ltd has shaped my own management style with the team that I currently work with.”
