6) As an Employee Owned organisation, we value our staff and volunteers

As an Employee Owned organisation our staff take an active part in the direction and continued improvements to our service.

Research has shown that Employee Owned organisations tend to be more efficient, with better staff engagement and retention, which has a positive effect on the quality of the services we deliver.

7) We value feedback

Our “Friends and Family” test results are outstanding. This is where we ask our staff “how likely are you to recommend your organisation to friends and family to receive care”.

When we ask “How likely are you to recommend your organisation to friends and family as a place to work? (Extremely Likely or Likely)” our results are also amazing.

8) We care about the environment

Care Plus is committed to reducing its carbon footprint and in May 2015 installed photo voltaic panels to the South Elevation of The Val Waterhouse Centre – the largest visible array of photo voltaic panels on a single building in North East Lincolnshire.

Some of our other buildings, such as Open Door and Queen Street also have energy efficient facilities that help towards our sustainability.

9) We are proud to be based in the heart of the communities we serve

CPG chose The Val Waterhouse Centre (formerly Freeman Street Resource Centre), in the heart of one of Grimsby’s East Marsh, as the base for its headquarters building which it purchased at the beginning of 2014.

The building is a hive of activity hosting a café, open access computers, meeting rooms available for community hire and a number of services such as employability co-located in the same building.

The building is in use 24 hours a day, seven days a week and the general public can call in to speak to someone on reception between 8.30am – 5.00pm Monday to Friday to enquire about services or be signposted. Outside of these hours, 24 hour telephone triage is provided from this location meaning a whole host of vital services are provided from a location in the heart of the communities we serve.

10) We reinvest in North East Lincolnshire

90% of CPG’s employees live in North East Lincolnshire and 44% of supply chain spend remains here which gives a ratio of £1:£1.93 – meaning that for every £1 spent with CPG generates £1.93 economic value for North East Lincolnshire.
