We hear all the time that good team work is essential to achieving shared success when we are working towards that same goal. When you feel like you’re a valued team member, you’re more likely to do the best work you can. It is no different at Springhill Care Group and working together within the healthcare sector is even more important, in the current climate, to foster good team relations to help, support and improve the service we provide to the vulnerable people in our care.
Teamwork in healthcare requires constant communication, regardless of our respective roles, so that we can ultimately be a part of and contribute to the business to ensure we achieve our vision of being the best service provider and employer of choice in the communities we serve.
By working together we can become more efficient, particularly if there is a problem faced along the way, there are more people to help solve the issue. At Springhill Care you will have noticed that we frequently set up specific project teams to address challenges within the working environment or to identify and improve ways of working, for example the Employee Voice and Rota Management Group. We do this as it allows us to get the work done faster with shared responsibilities. From a management perspective, encouraging teamwork at Springhill Care allows us to take on additional work and in turn generate new ideas that contribute to achieving our vision and mission. Great teamwork fosters improved communication and creates a better working environment.
We constantly promote positive teamwork through the Company’s Staff Code of Conduct by expecting our workforce to show commitment and participate fully in achieving team initiatives and goals. We encourage individuals to make an effort to ensure relations within the team are positive and there is a good team atmosphere but also to understand others roles and how they impact upon each other.
Alone we can do so little.
Together we can do so much!
