Radfield Home Care Harrogate champions employee well-being with industry-leading pay rise and benefits

Radfield Home Care Harrogate, Wetherby and North Yorkshire is committed to putting the well-being and financial security of our team members first. As a premium home care provider with over 40 years of experience, we understand the importance of supporting our Care Professionals, who are at the heart of our mission to help our community age well. In response to the recent increases in the cost of living, we have introduced a significant pay rise and enhanced benefits package to ensure our team members are well-compensated and appreciated.

High wages in home care

At Radfield Home Care, we have always prided ourselves on offering competitive compensation packages to attract and retain the best talent in the care sector. We are pleased to announce that all staff now receive a minimum of £13.25 per hour. This rate includes paid travel time as well as care time, ensuring our Care Professionals are fairly compensated for every aspect of their job. Additionally, we offer enhanced pay for weekends and public/bank holidays, emphasising our commitment to rewarding our team for their dedication and hard work.

We recognise that stable income is crucial for financial security. This is why we provide guaranteed hour contracts, allowing our team members to plan and manage their finances effectively. With flexible working arrangements and alternate weekends off, our Care Professionals can balance their professional and personal commitments seamlessly.

Commitment to the Living Wage Foundation

Our decision to implement this pay rise is in line with our dedication to the Living Wage Foundation accreditations. By adhering to these standards, we demonstrate our unwavering commitment to supporting our hardworking and dedicated team members. We believe that by providing industry-leading wages and benefits, our Care Professionals will feel valued and secure in their roles, ultimately translating to better care for our clients.

Radfield Home Care Harrogate recognises that our employees have diverse commitments outside of work, including families, studies, and personal interests. Our increased wages enable staff to maintain high standards in their work while meeting their financial obligations, reinforcing our position as a leader in the care sector not just in Harrogate, but across North and West Yorkshire.

A culture of appreciation and recognition

At Radfield Home Care, we foster a culture of appreciation and recognition among our team members. Management regularly expresses gratitude to our care and office staff through thoughtful gestures such as Advent Calendars, Easter Eggs, Christmas gifts, and handwritten cards distributed annually. These small tokens of appreciation are extended to staff’s children and clients as well, creating a warm and supportive community atmosphere.

We go a step further by providing every employee with annual leave on their birthday and covering the cost of their MOT. These unique benefits are designed to show our team members how much we value their dedication and hard work. Our Director, Matthew Nutting, summarises this sentiment perfectly:

“At Radfield Home Care, we believe that our success is built upon the dedication and hard work of our team. By reinvesting our profits into our staff, we can continue to provide excellent standards of care, prioritise working conditions, and enhance the ageing experience for all involved.”
