Recent awards and accreditations
Great Park Homecare is Berkshire’s first home care provider to gain the national Good Business Charter accreditation, indicating our commitment to responsible business behaviour. This entails committing to 10 components: real living wage, fairer hours and contracts, employee well-being, employee representation, diversity and inclusion, environmental responsibility, paying fair tax, commitment to customers, ethical sourcing, and prompt payment.
The Good Business Charter is an accreditation which organisations in the UK can sign up to in recognition of responsible business practices.
Our promises and commitments through GBC
Real Living Wage
The Real Living Wage is a UK wage rate that is voluntarily paid by UK businesses who believe their staff deserve a fair day’s pay for a hard day’s work. We promise to pay the real living wage to all our directly employed staff, have a plan to pay any contractors a living wage and we understand that fair pay means the difference between existing and living life.
Fairer Hours & Contracts
Being GBC accredited requires us to have a fair approach to zero or minimal hours contracts, including fair shift scheduling and cancellation policy, and proper consideration given to contracts to our staff with guaranteed hours.
The GBC requires us to have clear, fair and transparent staff policies and Employee Assistance Programme that support and encourage employee well-being and ban unreasonable penalties for legitimate sickness.
GBC certified members require all employers to engage with worker representatives and to ensure there is a voice that represents employees around the boardroom table.
Diversity and Inclusion
The GBC requires business members to evidence how they monitor the diversity of their workforce and their commitment to close the disability, gender and ethnicity pay gaps. We are proud of our diverse and inclusive workforce.
All GBC members commit to an environmental policy to demonstrate they are committed to reducing their environmental impact and continually improve their environmental performance.
Pay Fair Tax
As a GBC business, we commit to paying staff taxes, not engaging in tax avoidance and commit to being transparent in our relationship with HMRC.
Commitment to Customers
The GBC requires its businesses to publish their commitment to their client/customers on their website. Businesses will be expected to gather and monitor customer feedback and report the results to their board.
The GBC requires businesses to commit to the standards set out in the Ethical Trading Initiative Base Code for sourcing through a process of continuous due diligence.
Prompt Payment to Suppliers
Compliance with the principles of the Prompt Payment Code Compliance is monitored and enforced by a Board. The Code covers prompt payment, as well as wider payment procedures. Code signatories undertake to pay suppliers on time, give clear guidance to suppliers and encourage good practice.
