Nearly 300 organisations entered the Investors in People Awards 2021, making this a record-breaking year for entries and an even greater achievement for Home From Home Care. The Employer of the Year: Platinum Award category can only be entered by organisations, like Home From Home Care, which have been given the highest rating possible following an assessment by Investors in People.

Managing Director and founder of Home From Home Care, Paul de Savary said “There may be a recruitment crisis in the care sector, but we’ve always done things differently to other providers and that’s particularly apparent in the way we treat our team members. We make sure all our people are well paid and well looked after, with amazing opportunities for personal development and career progression.

“We welcome people from any background, training team members and investing in them so that caring can be a career that’s rewarding, respected and valued, and where people can truly make a difference to the lives of others.

The Investors in People Awards celebrate the very best organisations and individuals from around the world across various organisational, people, wellbeing and leadership categories.

Paul Devoy, CEO of Investors in People, commented “Now in our 8th year, it always makes me feel immensely proud to see so many fantastic organisations staking their claim to be the best. Reaching the final shortlist is a testament to the amazing commitment these organisations are making to make work better for their people, and they truly deserve this recognition.”

The winners will be announced at an online ceremony on the 23rd November 2021.
