Team work - Blog by Mike Lakins

This month I would like to look at the importance of team working and what better way than by looking at our newest accolade and success, Investors in People Platinum status.


This great achievement was gained by positively engaging with each other and being committed in our desire to reach our ultimate goal. Everyone within the Springhill Care Group has had a part to play in this success.


So what does team work mean to us at the Springhill Care Group?


Well it’s a way of working and it’s something that we do particularly well – we constantly strive for results and outcomes and we succeed because we are all eager to drive the business forward, to develop not only our practices collectively across the Group, but to excel in everything we do; we are passionate and ultimately believe in the company’s Vision, Mission and Values.


If we reflect back over the past few months, we have achieved a tremendous amount and without team work across the Group, this would not have been possible. I’d like to look at a couple of achievements in addition to Investors in People, Platinum status.


We were successful in reaching the Finals of The British Care Awards and our nominated colleagues who were from across the Group, were supported on the night by the entire Board. It was a fantastic achievement and without team work this would not have been possible.


Our recent success in securing a place on the Teaching Care Homes Programme, a prestigious programme based on working collaboratively for shared outcomes, was massive. We were able to showcase our award winning organisation during the selection process, supported on the day by all the Board members and I believe our team working culture, contributed to the positive results we wanted.


As we can see from the examples above, teamwork flows from the top down; we all recognise the importance of working together; everything that is achieved is always as a result of successfully engaging our colleagues and stakeholders.


On our journey forward we must continue to support each other and remember that teamwork is crucial in maintaining our place as market leaders in the care sector.
