A leading Cornish care provider has been recognised as one of the Best Places to Work after being shortlisted as a Finalist in the Western Morning News Business Awards 2022.
Swallowcourt operate six nursing and specialist residential homes situated within some of the most beautiful settings in Cornwall. The homes are well appointed and maintained. Each home is managed by talented and experienced professionals who lead dedicated, passionate, and highly trained nursing and care teams, caring for over 200 individuals at any time.
With over 400 employees, Swallowcourt prides itself on its commitment to supporting, nurturing, and caring for its staff so they are well placed to provide the highest level of care to the residents they are privileged to support.
Due to the geographical location of their homes in West Cornwall, Swallowcourt faces the significant challenges associated with rural recruitment, but with a commitment to investing in the communities in which they work, Swallowcourt offers a variety of career progression opportunities and embraces a culture of ‘growing their own’ staff.
Over the last three years despite the unprecedented challenges of the pandemic, Swallowcourt has implemented and reaped the rewards of a profound change in its culture, promoting involvement and inclusivity and committing to above industry standard investment in its teams to ensure the delivery of the very highest standards of care.
Speaking after learning they had been shortlisted as a finalist, Leah Marsh, Managing Director of Swallowcourt said:
We are honoured to be acknowledged in this way and are continually humbled by and incredibly proud of dedication, commitment and tenacity of our teams working tirelessly across our Swallowcourt Homes, maintaining the highest standards of care and support”. Leah continued by saying “We are committed to continually explore how we can support and recognise our team members, not only through pay and working conditions, but also through our culture, through recognition and by listening to the feedback we receive”.
In being announced as a finalist in the Best Places to Work category, Swallowcourt was able to evidence to the judges how the company has established credibility in terms of vision and communication. How employees are treated with respect and equality, encouraging team members to take pride in their work through creating a successful team environment with a commitment to wellbeing and safety.
Swallowcourt will learn if they are named as the overall winner when representatives attend the awards ceremony being held at Sandy Park Stadium, Exeter on Wednesday November 30.
