Business award for outstanding employer

An aged care facility in Umina has taken out the Outstanding Employer of Choice category of the Central Coast Regional Business Awards on October 11.

Peninsula Villages emerged victorious from one of the most evenly contested categories of the night, having been pitted against nursing recruitment agency Nurses Now, Inspired Tech and Gosford Private Hospital.

A team of Peninsula Villages staff, including chief executive officer Mr Shane Neaves and executive care manager Ms Melinda Dempsey, were on hand to accept the accolade.

"This is a win not just for Peninsula Villages, but for the entire aged care sector," said Mr Neaves.

"At a time when there is so much negative press surrounding aged care and we are currently going through a Royal Commission, it's good to see that organisations who are doing the right thing are being recognised for their work.

"Every member of our staff is dedicated solely to the livelihood of our residents.

"That shines through every day within our villages and it clearly shone through locally as well," he said.

The Outstanding Employer of Choice award recognises organisations that put in place strategies and initiatives to create stimulating and supportive workplace environments for their employees.

Mr Neaves said Peninsula Villages had many such strategies and initiatives in place.

"This helps us to attract and retain the strongest employees, boast a staff turnover rate nearly half that of the industry average and facilitate the needs of their diverse community beyond regulatory compliance," he said.
