In December we had an incredible couple of weeks with the specialist HR advisory team at Watershed, who delivered comprehensive face-to-face workshop training for our care home and central support teams.

The sessions were designed to empower our managers and wider team with the detailed and necessary skills for effective people leadership. Home Managers, Regional Managers, Home Deputy Managers and Home Administrators all left feeling more confident and with important additional skills to help them manage their teams even more effectively.

Gail Nelson, Regional Manager at Four Seasons Health Care Group, said: “The session was great! It was useful for us all as either a refresher or new learning and certainly increased confidence in the level of support homes will have moving forward with all things HR related.”

The sessions were in preparation for the launch of our new ‘People Portal’. The portal offers:

๐ŸŒŸ Revised robust and supportive HR processes for our teams
๐ŸŒŸ Offers a wide range of HR advisory services on demand for our busy teams
๐ŸŒŸEnables managers and the wider team to spend more time caring for residents and their colleagues

We've had lots of positive feedback about the sessions in readiness for our 'People Portal'. Fikile Ndabila, Clinical Lead, shared her experience: “I’ve enjoyed the session. All I’ve known in my life is nursing, and I’ve found this side of things too technical in the past. How Watershed explained things has made everything much clearer and easier and given me the confidence to use these skills in my home.”
