Employee Focus: Veena Barot
To start this week off we're meeting Veena, another one of Heathcotes successful staff who is currently on a seconded to Regional Manager for Leicestershire.
Veena already had eight years experience of working in the care sector when she joined us in December 2006 as a Team Leader at our home in Kirby. She has worked hard since then improving her skills and has acheived her NVQ Level 4 in Health and Social Care supported by Heathcotes and moved into the position of Home Manager at our Glenfield site.
With the promotion to Regional Manager Veena is continuing work on her Leadership and Management qualifications and is being supported by exisiting Regional Manager Gary Tideswell. Gary has completed his Leadership and Management qualifications and has many years of experience within the social care sector so working together they will provide fantastic coverage for all the homes in their area.
As you will have seen in previous news items Heathcotes firmly believes in empowering its team to develop their skills as much as possible in line with organisational needs and Veena's progression is a perfect example of this.
