To provide the best possible person-centred support, it is important that we do all we can to care for our workers in every part of the organisation.  Each year, we strive to do something more to improve the experience of working with Carr Gomm; and we have a few exciting developments to share.

We are delighted to have been recognised by Carer Scotland as a Carer Positive organisation. This award, presented to us by Clare Haughey, the Minister for Mental Health, during an event at the Scottish Parliament in June, demonstrates that we have a working environment where carers are valued and supported.

Earlier this year, we signed up to Lifeworks. As well as offering a range of retail and entertainment discounts, Lifeworks offers free and confidential information, support and counselling to all employees and their families around issues that may negatively impact their physical, mental and emotional wellbeing.

We have also agreed a partnership with Capital Credit Union, a community-based financial organisation able to support people to save, borrow and buy a house.

Liz, our operations manager for HR, said:

“These developments demonstrate just how committed we are to supporting and improving the wellbeing of our teams across Scotland. We are so grateful for their hard work and want to sustain positive wellbeing in every way we can; which in turn will allow us to continue to deliver high quality support to people across Scotland.”
