Macclesfield Express - - BUSINESS / SME BUSINESS TIPS -

A CARE home has been short­listed for ‘best em­ployer’ award in a na­tional event.

Be­long, which runs the Be­long Care Vil­lage on Kennedy Av­enue in Macclesfield, has been short­listed for a ‘Skills and Care Ac­co­lade’.

It’s a na­tional award recog­nis­ing care or­gan­i­sa­tions for their com­mit­ment to de­vel­op­ing their work­force and im­prov­ing the ser­vices and care for cus­tomers.

Be­long is one of four or­gan­i­sa­tions to be short­listed to take home the ‘best em­ployer of over 250 staff’ award.

Phil Or­ton, head of peo­ple at Be­long, said: “We were de­lighted to hear that Be­long had been short­listed for a Skills for Care Ac­co­lade.

“Be­long has been recog­nised for many things, from our build­ings to our ser­vices, how­ever our peo­ple are un­doubt­edly at the core of Be­long’s suc­cess.

“Our staff live and breathe Be­long and our val­ues, so we be­lieve that they de­serve to be recog­nised and cel­e­brated for their hard work.”

He added: “It is im­por­tant to us that we of­fer per­son-cen­tred care for our cus­tomers, but it is equally im­por­tant that we take the same ap­proach to our staff.”
