PJ Care Named Top 100 to Work For

Mon 4 Mar 2019 - posted by PJ Care

PJ Care joins the prestigious ranks of the top 100 companies to work for in the UK-wide Best Companies Survey.

The specialist neurological care provider has secured 87th place on the esteemed list and gained one-star accreditation in their first year of applying. PJ Care is the only care provider to appear on the top 100 list. The result is based on a staff survey which sees all elements of working life covered from My Manager to Wellbeing and Personal Growth. The family-run business was ranked particularly highly in the Leadership and My Company categories, with results showing staff strongly agree that PJ Care is run on strong values and principles as well as being an organisation they feel proud to work for.

At PJ Care, internal communication and staff wellbeing is a huge focus. Staff are engaged and empowered through their mission to put their residents at the heart of everything they do and their core values of Compassion, Commitment and Care. Initiatives such as monthly meet ups between staff and the board of directors coined “Tea for Twelve”, an open-door policy throughout the company and yearly staff-nominated awards which culminates in a company-wide celebration of success ensures staff feel valued and motivated. Leading these non-archetypal approaches within PJ Care is Neil Russell, who last year took over from his Mother and Founder of PJ Care, Jan Flawn, as Chair. Neil’s inspirational leadership approach continues to take PJ Care on their journey of inclusivity and growth as specialist providers of outstanding neurological care.

Neil commented: “We are so proud of this accolade. To be recognised as a great company to work for directly by the people who make PJ Care what is it: our staff, is truly phenomenal. At PJ Care we maintain that everything we do is about our residents and this achievement means we can continue to build our highly skilled and motivated team and work together to change the lives of others”.

Jonathan Austin, CEO of Best Companies Ltd, added: ““I would like to congratulate PJ Care on their achievement of One Star Accreditation status and being named as one of the UK’s Best Companies to Work for. Best Companies have been producing the Accreditation standard since 2006 to acknowledge excellence in the workplace. We are proud that organisations like PJ Care focus on their employees and have been rewarded with an engaged workforce who tell us that they’re a best company to work for”.

COVID-19 AND PJ CARE

We are all aware that these are very difficult times and that nearly everyone has been affected in some way by the COVID-19 virus.

Here at PJ Care we are taking every precaution and doing all we can to ensure the safety and wellbeing of our residents and staff and their families and loved ones. We have put many new systems in place to ensure the wellbeing of all, including heightened infection control procedures, restrictions on visitors to our buildings and reducing staff movement between Units.

As a result of the inconsistencies in conducting tests and the inability to carry out antibody tests, we have taken the decision to cease all new admissions until the situation is clearer. We have taken this decision to protect our existing residents, all of whom are vulnerable and at high risk should the virus get into one of our buildings.

As with all aspects of the situation this will be reviewed daily by our board and senior management team, who are meeting daily via video conference to review the latest situation and make changes to our processes as required.

We provide our staff team, residents and relatives with daily updates and ensure that everyone is able to keep in touch as much as possible in the circumstances. If you have any concerns or enquiries relating to the current situation, please get in touch on enquiries@pjcare.co.uk.

Staff access into our buildings is strictly controlled, and all other non-essential access is not permitted. Staff and residents are given regular health checks throughout the day to ensure they remain healthy and safe. Safe systems are in place to recruit and train temporary cover for staff who have to self-isolate. Our staffing numbers remain at our usual high levels.

While there are reports of shortages of some equipment and distribution by suppliers is rationed, we are confident that we have sufficient supply to meet the needs of our residents. We continue to do all we can to protect those in our care and the incredible people who look after them every day.

We will provide regular updates via our social media channels and on our website, but should you have any questions about anything we do please get in touch via the contact page on the website www.pjcare.co.uk.

Take care and stay healthy

Neil Russell

Chairman
