Peverel Court Care’s motto has always been exceptional elderly care, and our employees play a vital role in making sure we accomplish the high standards we have set for ourselves.
Peverel Court Care believes its outstanding employees have been instrumental in our homes achieving an excellent rating from the Care Quality Commission. We have always been appreciative of our staff, and that is why we have introduced the national living wage for all employees regardless of their age.
National living wage
The national living wage was introduced by the government to move the UK from a high welfare, low wage, high tax society to a higher wage, lower welfare, lower tax society.
The new wage regulation mandates that, from April 1st 2016, all working individuals aged 25 and over will receive £7.20 per hour, with the national minimum wage continuing to apply to working individuals under the age of 25. This means those under the age of 25 will continue to earn £6.70 per hour, which is set to increase to £6.95 per hour from October 2016.
Appreciating Peverel Court Care staff
At Peverel Court Care we realise we are fortunate to have such wonderful teams in our three homes. To express our appreciation, we have decided to pay all our employees the national living wage. While a number of our staff members are paid more, now everybody, including staff members under 25 years of age, will receive at least the the national living wage; there will be no discrimination in wages for staff members aged 24 and under.
This is our way of thanking our staff and showing them we know they are highly dedicated and work hard to provide exceptional personalised elderly care and make our residents comfortable. Peverel Court Care invites you to visit our homes and mingle with our residents and staff, who are always welcoming and happy to spend time with visitors.
