STAFF and volunteers at Myton Hospice have spoken out about what working for the charity means to them.
Those employed by, and volunteering for the hospice were interviewed by Investors in People, which recognises a high standard of management.
And the hospice – which has centres in Warwick, Rugby and Coventry – has received accreditation for its ‘high performance’ and ‘sense of pride based upon a strong set of values’.
Nearly everyone interviewed said Myton was a good or great place to work.
The main reason was the difference they could make for patients and their families dealing with terminal illness.
Many said the support and camaraderie of their colleagues was a significant factor and just over half indicated it was also the organisation as a place of work.
Director of human resources Geoffrey Etule said: “As well as caring for and supporting patients and their families, we also strive to look after our staff and volunteers.
“The accreditation will help provide guidance so we can continue to develop this.”
