Star Employee of the Month Award

Rewarding hard work and dedication

We’re proud of our dedicated employees here at Avanta Care, and we like to look after them. That’s why we have introduced our Star Employee of the Month Award which is open to everyone who works at or on behalf of Avanta Care.

It’s also an opportunity for our clients to show that they too appreciate the hard work and effort it takes to keep Avanta Care one of the most highly rated care providers on Carehome.co.uk.

 

Award

You're all stars!

Each month, care home managers have the opportunity to nominate a member of staff they’ve hired from us - someone outstanding who they think deserves special recognition. Each nominee is then entered into a prize draw, from which one nominee is drawn to win the award.

The winner gets a special prize too, which could be anything from shopping vouchers, to electrical appliances or all expenses paid excursions.

There’s no paperwork to fill in for staff or care managers - we’ll take care of the whole process to make sure the competition is run fairly and honestly, in line with our values. Staff can’t nominate themselves for the award.

Nomination tips:

  • To be punctual
  • To work flexibly with work shifts and patterns
  • To genuinely care about the people they help
  • To show exceptional team spirit and cooperation
  • To go the extra mile to deliver high quality care

Previous Star Employees:

"Gheorghita is an outstanding member of staff. Always responsive to needs of service users and able to identify problems and solve independently. She takes the care of our residents as a priority often staying after a shift or coming early to ensure all needs are met."
"Anna shows outstanding compassion in every aspect of her care. She has assisted our sister care home when they were short and demonstrated exceptional professionalism in working in this different environment. Anna has been observed spending additional time with palliative residents in her attempt to make a difference in this stage in their lives. Families have noted her compassion that is always delivered with a smile. On shift she always looks for the next thing to do and focuses on her colleagues making her a very well respected team player. Colleagues always comment positively when they know they are working with Anna. She is an absolute asset to our organisation through our relationship with you. Totally outstanding!"
"Adrian is a very committed and conscientious carer. He has much empathy towards those in his care and nothing is too much trouble. Adrian has worked at our sister home if they are short staffed and works well in the team. He never complains about the shifts he is allocated and is always ready to step in if required at short notice. Adrian has built a good relationship with his co-workers and any stranger coming into the building would not assume he was an agency employee - he is an integral part of our team!"
"Costel has been an absolute gem from the start. He is always prepared to help wherever he can and showed a real willingness to learn."
"Gareth has had an excellent month. He has consistently surpassed his weekly targets, and has worked extremely hard for the team. He has set a very high standard within the department."
"We really were at a loose end, our service user's family were away and we needed somebody to step in and stay with them overnight. We had exhausted our options when our Sales Manager Paul recommended Angelica, who had completed our training and had previous domiciliary care experience. She immediately agreed to help out and put our service user's needs first. Both the family and myself were extremely grateful, Angelica is a very professional and caring lady who deserves this recognition."
"Gheorghe is already a valued and dedicated member of our team, and we are all lucky to have him here. Please would you put Gheorghe forward for the Star Employee Award as he truly deserves recognition of his qualities."
"As the company expands, we are taking more and more care packages on. Amanda has taken on the majority of the unsociable hours, to ensure her team of carers have some downtime on a weekend. Amanda has lead by example and without complaint has put the need of our service users first. She is a great example to not only her own team of carers, but to Avanta Care as a whole."
"Linda is an absolute joy to work with. She is friendly, helpful and always willing to help when we are short of staff. Her years of care experience make her a real asset to the team, and we are luck to have her."
"Jamie is an integral part of the Avanta Care team, and has been since the company started. He is dedicated and hard working, and is always the first in the office on a morning and the last to leave on an evening."
"Adrian is an excellent care giver. He is very caring and shows dignity at all times."
