KeepWell! Right at Home leads the way in workplace wellbeing for carers
Right at Home, providers of in home care and assistance across Ireland has become the first company of its kind in Ireland to achieve the KeepWell Mark accreditation awarded by IBEC. This is as part of a commitment by Right at Home to provide the newest and highest standards of workplace wellness, health, and safety to its employees.
The KeepWell Mark is an evidence based accreditation and award that recognises Irish employers for investing in workplace health and wellbeing. Its aim is to help business benchmark workplace wellbeing activity through a set of systematic and methodical steps. The framework includes a self assessment, an onsite assessment from an Ibec approved external assessor, and culminates with a report that outlines areas for improvement – allowing your business to chart its way to success.
Speaking about the accreditation, David McKone, Managing Director of Right at Home said, “We are very proud to receive the KeepWell Mark as part of our commitment to ensuring the highest standards of employee wellbeing. Our Home Care Assistants, along with every member of the team give so much to their clients on a daily basis, providing the highest standard of care and support and it’s important that their own health and wellbeing is right at the top of the priority list as well. While it was an area of concern well before Covid-19, the past 12 months has really highlighted the need for much more of a focus on employee wellbeing. It’s hugely positive for companies to have access to initiatives like the KeepWell Mark as a benchmark and we are already witnessing the benefits.”
Commenting on their accreditation, Sarah McSharry of IBEC said, “We are delighted to award Right at Home with the KeepWell Mark, signifying their commitment to employee health, wellbeing, and safety across all aspects of their business. It’s fantastic to see so many businesses like Right at Home, taking this step to follow industry best practice and setting an example for many more Irish businesses. Employee wellbeing is a hugely important factor for businesses and the KeepWell framework gives businesses a structure to follow in order to continually improve standards.”
These eight areas of improvement in IBEC’s KeepWell programme are leadership, absence management, smoke free, physical activity, health & safety, mental health, healthy eating, and intoxicants.
