Award winning Parkhaven Trust have once again received high levels of staff satisfaction when compared with similar organisations according to the latest staff survey bench marking reports.

We are delighted that for the third year running, we have won an Employee Engagement Award from Agenda Consulting for achieving a score of at least 80% for the question “I would recommend this organisation as a good place to work” – Parkhaven achieved 85%.

That’s up 3% on our figure from last year!

Kim Crowe, Chief Executive at Parkhaven Trust said; “We are delighted to have been recognised for our excellent staff satisfaction levels. This has once again been a very challenging year for our staff.  Our dedicated team of staff work hard and often go above and beyond in their roles to keep our service users happy and safe.

At the heart of what we do is an ethos of kindness, caring and experience. This same approach applies to our team of staff who all benefit from a working culture that is open, honest and focused on investing in developing our staff’s skill set. A large part of this is the importance we place on paying our staff a fair rate for a hard day’s work and our accreditation as a Real Living Wage employer.   

This all adds up to happier staff that provide an excellent service to our clients. The award backs up what we at Parkhaven already know – Parkhaven Trust is a great place to work!”
