Outstanding Achievement Award

The monthly award, scored by the Executive Team, recognises the incredible contribution and commitment to the National Care Group values demonstrated by our Colleagues. We want to hear about anyone going above and beyond their roles to make amazing happen for the People We Support or their fellow Team members.

Each nomination made will be read and acknowledged by the Executive Team and even if they don’t win, they will receive a social media ‘shout-out’ and may even be used as a National Care Group case study or be put forward for an *external award, such as a Great British Care Award.

*Please note, National Care Group will only put forward and support external award entries which have been through the Outstanding Achievement Awards process and have been recognised by the Regional Operations Directors and/or The Executive Team.

The reward for the overall winner each month includes a winner’s certificate, a winner’s pin badge, a £100 Love2Shop voucher and the chance of becoming the national winner at the National Care Group Annual Awards.

How do I make a nomination?

  1. Complete a nomination form and send it to your line manager, Regional Operations Manager or Regional Operations Director for their approval.
  2. They then need to ensure it is submitted to media@nationalcaregroup.com by the first Friday of the following month.
  3. Your nomination will be sent to the Executive Team for scoring.

We want to know about the colleagues who demonstrates the company values of PASSION, EMPOWERMENT, COLLABORATION and RESPECT.

Unfortunately, there can only be one winner each month, so make sure your nomination really shouts about the work that your nominee has done. It can be for a variety of activities including major progress with a person we support/a strong case study of progression, career progression, support of a fellow colleague or a particular achievement following hard work outside of, or on top of the day role.

What next?

Be patient, sometimes there are a lot of entries for the Executive Team to score!

You will get an email notifying you of the month’s winner at some point the following month.

If your nomination is successful, a member of the Executive Team will arrange to visit your service or support function office to present the winners. It will be up to you if you keep their visit a surprise or not.

The national winners for 2021/22 were the Cherry Tree Gardens Team, Atlantic Way Care. Congratulations!
