Swallowcourt, who operate three nursing and three specialist residential homes, triumphed as both the Workforce Development Award winners and the winner of the Three R’s Award for Recruitment, Recognition and Retention for the South West in 2022 and are finalists in the categories again in 2023 together with the Care Employer Award.
Swallowcourt believe that investing in their workforce and offering career progression results in a good retention rate which is demonstrated by 20% of their current workforce having worked for the company for 10 years or more.
Poldhu’s kitchen team are finalists in the Care Home Chef category and 9 individuals have also been recognised as finalists.
Gemma Elloway, Head of Business and Finance at Swallowcourt said “We have held our own Swallowcourt Heroes awards for the last few years which has highlighted some of the amazing people within our teams but we are immensely proud to see them achieve this recognition at a regional level. Each finalist absolutely deserves their place at the awards and we hope to be bringing back an award or two. To have 2 finalists in some categories is a testament to the strength within our teams.”
Representatives from Swallowcourt and the individual nominees will be attending the Regional Finals at Ashton Gate, Bristol on 23rd November this year.
