CareUK: Winning a return in the care industry

by | Nov 23, 2007 | Articles

CareUK deliver care to people who need it in their own homes. They deliver home-based e-learning to their employees who need it. This is an outstanding example of Return on Investment.

Existing trainer staff were redeployed to higher value training. Staff retention improved by 15%, NVQ Level 2 qualifications delivered in 4 months rather than 10 months, employee expansion of 2,000 a year, trained and assessed for competence immediately on joining.

The investment paid for itself within 6 months but more importantly improved the level of care, simplified compliance, enabled increased recruitment and got people through induction and into profitable work faster.

Learning can be defined in many ways, but most psychologists would agree that it is a relatively permanent change in behaviour that results from experience. The three major types of learning described by behavioural psychology are; classical conditioning, operant conditioning and observational learning. In order for learning to stick and becomes the new normal, all three types require self-driven will. Therefore, how people view the world through their lens matters.
