Is your Social Care Organisation fit for purpose in the 21st century?

Is your Social Care Organisation fit for purpose in the 21st century?

Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, more and more employers have started to trial and switch to new ways of working to adhere to the new, so-called “normal“. Alternate and more flexible working arrangements, such as working from home models, have become much more popular since the first lockdown.

As this way of working has become increasingly popular by many, the workforce of the future is evolving. As an organisation it is important to identify this to ensure your business and its culture can keep up with the way the world is changing.

With vacancies in adult social care rising and 1 in 11 vacancies in the sector unfilled, offering more flexible working models could be the key to attracting the right talent and closing the skill gap. A government-backed study for Zurich Insurance found “by offering roles that fit flexibly around family life, employers could open the floodgates to a much wider pool of untapped talent.”

A number of our customers’ senior and management teams have followed a working from home model since the start of the pandemic. They have discovered many benefits from this way of working and many have felt the flexible working models have increased their productivity as well as improved their work-life balance.

We thought it would be useful to share with you some tips and pointers on how to improve people’s well-being when working from home.
