National Care Group has partnered with Engage Solutions Group to launch an employee engagement app for its 2,400 staff members working across its 150 sites in England and Wales.
As part of a wider digital transformation project, the ‘Engage’ app allows workers to check company updates, book holiday, look at their payslip, read and acknowledge policies, tap into wellness resources, and ‘pre-board’ as a new starter.
Best practice can be generated on-the-go, while colleague recognition and support will be shared, and feedback will form a two-way dialogue between users and app managers.
‘The app presents us with the opportunity to create one digital world for National Care Group, removing the barriers that come with distance, the absence of corporate email for our frontline colleagues, and reliance on analogue processes,’ said National Care Group’s people director Claire Leake.
‘For the first time, we can connect every single colleague not just to the National Care Group brand and to central support, but to each other too, regardless of location, creating a community experience and collaborative culture.’
