We are here to support you with better pay and career development
Kingsley’s Group People Director Lisa Lock said the company would continue to support staff as a Real Living Wage employer through the cost of living crisis.
She said: “We will be expanding our pay and benefits for our front-line employees with an additional £2 million investment. Therefore, we are delighted to confirm that from May next year we will be introducing a further pay review for our front-line employees which will be in line with the Real Living Wage increase.
“As well as offering enhanced pay and benefits, we are also committed to career development opportunities to all who want to take the opportunity to progress in their careers with the option to take NVQs; in addition to this we will be introducing a Kingsley management programme for 10 of our top employees.”
She said the introduction of staff engagement platform ROaR in May had proved a success with over 70% of employees regularly logging on; as well as providing news stories and information from Kingsley’s homes, wellbeing and financial advice, ROaR also gave access to some genuine discounts to help with everyday shopping as well as gift purchases.
She added: “On occasion, things don’t go the way we plan. In times like these, the Kingsley Foundation is here to help you. Where you have a genuine need for assistance, please speak with your home manager for an application form.
“We understand that the cost of living crisis is concerning and frightening for everyone. If you need assistance, please speak with your home manager, or contact a member of the People team. We will do what we can to help you.”
