Helping Hands becomes a Glassdoor Employees’ Choice Award 2018 winner

Helping Hands Homecare has been awarded with a Glassdoor Employees’s Choice Award after being ranked the 22nd Best Place to Work in 2018. Helping Hands has a branch in Musters Road West Bridgford. 

Now entering it’s tenth year globally, and 4th in the UK, the awards are based on feedback and reviews left by employees on Glassdoor; one of the fastest growing job and recruitment sites where employees and former employees anonymously review companies and their management.

The website boasts a database consisting of millions of company reviews, CEO approval ratings, salary reports, interview reviews and questions, and benefits reviews, all on over 700,000 companies around the world.

From the feedback gathered on the site, Helping Hands was recognised as a leading and quality employer, being the only home care company within top 50, and being in the company of various sector giants such as Facebook and Google.

Tim Lee, CEO of Helping Hands, who received an award of his own earlier this year after being acknowledged as one of the Highest Rated CEOs in the UK, explained what a privilege it was to be involved in a company that has passion for making a positive difference to people in need.

“We are experiencing a period of huge growth and so ensuring that our company values remain constant is key if we are to be an employer of choice and continue to deliver outstanding home care to our families,” he said, also stating the benefits of Glassdoor’s ability to gather and combine feedback and the way in which it can help a company to improve.

Robert Hohman, Glassdoor CEO and co-founder, said of the awards, “to help people find companies that stand out from the pack, the Glassdoor Employees’ Choice Awards recognise employers that are truly Best Places to Work because they’re determined by those who really know best – the employees.”

Currently holding an employer rating of 4.3 out of 5, Helping Hands have seriously improved over the last 12 months, with a surge in positive reviews and ratings. 82% of their employees would now recommend working for the company to a friend.

The reviews on Glassdoor are based on a mix of qualitative and quantitative feedback, which include overall satisfaction, and key workplace factors like career opportunities, compensation, benefits, work/life balance, senior management, and culture and values.

One such review of Helping Hands reads as follows:

“Working at Helping Hands is a pleasure. The staff are extremely helpful, there’s plenty of opportunities to progress and overall it is a genuine solid all-round good company to work for.”

And the tone is consistent throughout. Many say they feel part of a family, complementing the ‘team ethos’, and are fulfilled that are they able to help those that are vulnerable, giving them great job satisfaction.

If Helping Hands stay on the path they’re on, they will continue to grow as a leading force within their sector; something both their customers and their employees will be thoroughly glad with.
