“Apollo Care- Where care comes first”.
That was our promise from when the business started and still the same to this very day!
But this is not just about our clients- we care very passionately about our staff members too. With this in mind, the “Apollo Academy” idea was born.
This prestigious training event has been planned one day per week over a 4-week period. Our franchise managers nominate members of their teams who have been in the business for 12 months or more and have shown a real aptitude for self-development, flexibility and commitment to the team. We have brought together 5 of our brilliant Care Assistants from across the Apollo family for a couple of hours each week and discussed key areas for our business and the part we all play in making a difference to people’s lives.
We discussed topics such as how Apollo Care started, CQC (our regulators), how important good communication is, our values and mission statement and our future plans! Lunch and refreshments were provided and it was just so nice that they got time out of their normal routines and got to know the Head Office staff too.
We want our staff to feel valued, wanted, and know that they have a very good career opportunities with our company and in the care profession. This is just one way that we can show staff that we care a lot about them.
Looking at the feedback we have had everyone involved has gained valuable insight and skills and it has been so successful that we are looking to have the academy twice a year for our Carers who are committed, flexible and want to progress and develop themselves.
Are YOU that person?
Do you want to be involved?
