Townfield Care are delighted to have been presented with the Hyndburn Business Award for Employer of the Year 2016. The category, sponsored by Meltis HR Ltd, offered tough competition from a selection of 200 of Hyndburn’s best businesses.
Enterprising People organised the inaugural Hyndburn Business Awards and a superb awards evening which was held at Accrington town hall. Maria Timmins, Michael Timmins, John Timmins & Kath Howard attended the event to receive the award on behalf of the company.
The Award Category was described as “Hyndburn’s Employer of Choice; the organisation that best attracts, retains and develops talent which contributes to sustainable success. Nominees have been asked to demonstrate how organisational performance has improved since January 2015; that employees are fully engaged in achieving strategic goals and organisational values and that effective staff training, development, retention and recruitment practises have contributed to success”
Michael Timmins (Managing Director) stated “This award recognises how companies manage and develop the people that work for them. We are therefore particularly pleased to have won it in recognition of our recently launched Care Academy but also because of the importance we give to the support & development of all the people who work at Townfield Care”.
The title of Employer of the Year reflects the company’s dedication to recruitment & development of the right people to provide the highest level of care and support. Townfield Care employs a predominantly local workforce who benefit from attending Townfield’s Care Academy.
John Timmins (Managing Director) said “Townfield Care is committed to providing what we believe is a quality training. We have recently increased our investment in the programme, and due to the increasing demand of social care have plans to recruit over 100 additional people this year. We consider our employees to be the foundation of the company’s success. It is imperative that we pass on essential skills and knowledge to ensure the continued success of Townfield Care”.
