An Employee-owned Social Enterprise

Our Employees Own The Organisation

We’re an employee-owned organisation – but what does that mean? Simply put, each and every employee at Be Caring has an equal share in our company, and share in its success. Like being part of a family, we support and encourage each other to be the best we can be, and to equally have a real say in how our business is run.

We put our values and mission first, not our profits. The people we care for and our colleagues are our absolute priority – we are definitely a “people first” organisation! We use our profits to invest and reinvest in providing real career pathways and recognised qualifications for our workforce, which open up fantastic opportunities in health and social care.

We also invest in our local communities – for example, we were proud to be able to donate 26,000 medical grade face masks to local VCS groups during the height of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Voice

Our organisation is governed by what we call “Voice”, which is made up of a number of nominated colleagues from across all of Be Caring’s services.

These Voice representatives gather thoughts, ideas and concerns from colleagues across the business, and bring these together to make changes to the way Be Caring operates, giving our colleagues a real say in the business.

Bronwyn Burgess

Voice Chair

“I think VOICE, for me, is around the employee-ownership of Be Caring. That irrespective of our roles, everyone has that opportunity to be involved and drive the success of our business.”

We’re Trustee Members of the Employee Ownership Association (EOA)

Meaning we’re actively committed to making our organisation the best it can be for our employee-owners.

“Everybody has an equal share of Be Caring. What that means, is you benefit from the financial rewards that come with that. So we currently have birthday gift vouchers Christmas gift vouchers, an annual bonus. It also means that you have a voice, you can be part of a local forum where you influence the quality of the service. You can bring feedback, you can design how our services are run, and we want you to feel part of the organisation.”
