“Future Directions CIC are committed 100% to the support and development of its staff. We recognise that by making this investment it helps Future Directions to maintain and improve the company and overall social care: standards, safety, productivity and flexibility. It has also help to reduce our staff turnover and sickness.
Our commitment is evident from the top of the organisation and you often hear our Managing Director, Paula Braynion quoting Ricard Branson: “Train people well enough so they can leave, treat them well enough, so they don’t want to.
During July 16 we started to work with DH Associates who have 100% complimented our learning and development offer to our staff. Future Directions have found them to be supportive and responsive to our needs. Since April 17 Nicky Bagshaw (Employment & Engagement Officer) has been particularly helpful in supporting us on our journey along the Apprenticeship Pathway”.
