At Home From Home Care, we’ve always believed that work should be rewarding, to you, your bank balance and those you are working with.
That’s why we go above and beyond the average pay for the care sector, and we offer some big bonuses on top of that – just for turning up to work!
Last year we supported our colleagues with a generous 10.5% pay rise.
Now, our attendance bonus is also going up to a whopping 6%!
Attendance bonus, what’s that?
In short, our attendance bonus means you get paid more for doing your job and being reliable. It’s available to all colleagues working in a support role.
Starting out as a 1% bonus for a month without unauthorised leave, this bonus gets bigger and bigger for every successive month. Previously, it peaked at 4% after four months, Now, it goes all the way to 6% after six months.
And in case you were wondering, this bonus isn’t affected by annual leave, authorised sick pay, compassionate leave or flexible working, it’s only *unauthorised absences* which can break the chain. You really can’t say fairer than that!
With the 6% bonus in play, it boosts entry-level pay to the equivalent of £11.66 per hour or £24,318 per year!
The attendance bonus is designed as a reward for reliability and understanding the detrimental impact of unauthorised absence on both the home and other colleagues. It’s also a recognition of a colleague’s commitment and investment to their own role, the wider service and team.
Development and flexibility
Our bonus scheme is by no means the only way we reward our staff either.
Alongside our sector beating pay and bonus scheme, we invest in your professional development too. We help you to identify and follow your interests to develop a career that works for you – and we have more than 90 different roles available!
Thanks to this, most of our people earn 53% more money after five years with us thanks to the amazing career progression on offer.
But as well as the great pay, brilliant bonuses and opportunities at every turn… we also offer flexible working to make your career fit your lifestyle and we have flexible payment options too.
These include an immediate £100 advance on monthly pay and you also get paid within 24 hours of any additional shifts you may choose to take on.
We’re also an accredited Living Wage Employer, so you can rest assured that our pay will always meet everyday needs.
Truly rewarding work
While we look after our colleagues financially, we also believe that work should be rewarding in all senses of the word.
Careers at Home From Home Care allow you to make a real difference to the lives of people with learning disabilities and high acuity needs like autism.
Our team shares a sense of purpose and belonging as they help to change lives for the better on a daily basis.
We expect our colleagues to show empathy and compassion as they go about their roles, and we demonstrate those same qualities as an employer.
We’re committed to looking out for our colleagues just as much as the individuals that we support. As well as offering free mental health and occupational health support, our unique high-tech smart systems help us to ensure workloads are kept fair and manageable for everyone.
