Corporate social responsibility
Corporate Social Responsibility at Eastleigh aims to embrace responsibility for corporate actions and to encourage a positive impact on our environment.
With the continued help of our suppliers Eastleigh Care Homes consistently reviews methods to purchase goods and services that have a minimal impact on the environment. Our waste recycling and collection continues to be provided by Viridor.
We convert all cooking oils and actively manage our kitchen waste and source local ingredients and products wherever possible.
Estates & facilities
Our homes all boast low energy light bulbs wherever possible and this has resulted in noticeable savings in energy costs. The homes are fitted with low energy flat screen televisions and computer screens have recently been updated.
Eastleigh Care Homes continues to review ways to reduce our carbon footprint. We are currently reviewing a possible amendment to our water and heating supplies in the homes which would have a significant reduction in our carbon footprint.
Eastleigh Care Homes is committed to promoting equality and challenging discrimination in our business.
Our employment practices are fair and we value our staff. We actively challange discrimination and promote equality exceeding duties as statue in legislation. We actively promote a service that is truly inclusive to all we engage with and strive to become an employer of choice.
In the health & social care industry the quality and motivation of your employees dictates the success of your business. The ability to have well trained, engaged and quality employees helps you provide exceptional personal centred care.
Eastleigh Care Homes reviews the sickness levels and compliance of the company e-learning portal every month. This allows us to drive attendance and ensure that all staff have the appropriate training to remain compliant and confident to deliver excellent care.
From April 2015 each employee will have a personal development plan to assist with their learning and to comply with the Care Standards requirements laid down by legislation. Every employee has an annual appraisal which reviews compliance, quality and learning. Eastleigh Care Homes also engages with regular supervision sessions for care staff to ensure that they remain focused on providing person centred care.
Our recruitment and retention is focused on providing staff who are capable and caring regardless of their sex, marital status, race, religion or disability. Eastleigh Care Homes remains focused on full compliance with the Equality Act 2010.
