Awarding-winning support for our team!

We’re so proud to have won this award in recognition of the work we do to support our employees’ wellbeing. 

We know that we can only do our best for the families who need us if our people feel well supported and can maintain their mental and physical health and wellbeing. 

So we have developed a range of resources for staff – from a comprehensive employee assistance programme, one-to-one resilience sessions, hybrid and flexible working, to a financial wellbeing tool, stress risk assessments and wellbeing action plans. 

We recently launched our People Promise which captures all our work in this area under one umbrella and is a demonstration of our commitment to enabling our people to be the best they can be – and enjoy their time at Forget Me Not.

In a recent staff survey, one member of staff summed this up by commenting ‘I feel like the organisation as whole really cares about its staff and is very supportive and caring. I feel like the work we do is very rewarding and it is a special place to work.’

In presenting the award, the Yorkshire Post judges said: “With staff involved in such important and challenging work, the hospice runs a comprehensive Employee Assistance Programme, access to counselling and individual sessions with a qualified resilience / wellbeing coach. The hospice was up against some fantastic other entries in this category but the judges felt that the support provided to employees of the winner merited the award given the vital work done by those staff members.”
