Leading UK homecare provider Right at Homehas beenawarded national 5 Star Employer status across its network of 59-locally owned and operated offices.

The business was named a 5 Star Employer following its annual employee engagement survey, run by independent researcher WorkBuzz. 1,175 members of staff completed the anonymised survey.

Right at Home is the most highly rated national homecare agency on the UK’s leading independent review site homecare.co.uk, with an 9.8/10 rating and more than 1,000 reviews. The company provides Clients with a wide range of services, delivered in the comfortable surroundings of their own home, from personal care and companionship through to holiday and respite cover and full-time live-in care. 

Commenting on the recognition, Right at Home UK CEO, Ken Deary, said: “We look after our staff in the same way as they look after our Clients and this is reflected in the results of our survey.  

“We know our staff are our most important asset and without them, we couldn’t do what we do. We therefore commit to carrying out the WorkBuzz surveys year-on-year, in order to strive for continuous improvement.” 

Steven Frost, CEO of WorkBuzz, said of the 5 Star recognition: “For several years, we’ve been helping leading organisations gather feedback from their employees, improve employee engagement and reduce staff turnover. Through the WorkBuzz 5 Star Employer awards, we will now be able to recognise employers who are truly leading employee engagement to improve the working lives of their people.”
