Piotr’s Blog – Investing in our People
Our staff are our biggest asset and we are committed to investing in each and every member of staff.
Outlook Care would not be the organisation it is without the compassion, kindness and dedication of the people who work within it and we are pleased to continually offer training, support, experiences and rewards. As a result of our commitment we have successfully held the Investors in People award for many years.
In November and December we underwent re-accreditation again. Our Assessor was on site and met with many of our staff to capture their views around Outlook Care. I’m delighted to announce that we have been re-accredited as an Investors in People organisation, having met the appropriate requirements of the Investors in People framework.
We have received the full report and will communicate further celebrating our successes and sharing details of the plans to address any areas identified for development.
I would like to thank everyone that has been involved in this year’s assessment for making our Assessor feel so welcome. I would particularly like to thank those people who were interviewed and who our Assessor said he greatly enjoyed meeting with.

Investing in our staff is something that we love to do and our staff respond amazingly. Below is a screenshot of a fabulous article which evidences how investing in people translates into practice.
The feature, in the latest issue of Care Talk magazine, is about Outlook Care staff and how our different roles had an impact on the outstanding CQC rating for leadership we received at the end of last year. Here is the link to the magazine (we’re on page 22).
All the very best.
