At Riverdale, we regularly refer to our company values as they underpin everything that we do. But we are always mindful that we demonstrate these values, and that they don’t become just words.
Our ‘we care about people’ value is not only about the patients we treat, but the people that treat them too. We understand that the current cost challenges are causing real concern among households – even placing fuel in the car to get to work can be difficult for some.
That is why Riverdale are pleased to announce that we will be paying all our team members a one-off winter ‘cost of living’ support payment of an extra £100 per month for the next six months! A little bit extra to help with where our team members may need it the most.
Speaking of the gesture, CEO Emma Barnes said, “As a business we are fully aware of the difficulties that many people are facing when it comes to the current cost of living, therefore it means a lot that we can support our team members and recognise their hard work at the same time through these additional payments.”
The support payment forms one of several initiatives that are in place within Riverdale, including the Employee Assistance Programme; provided in partnership with Health Assured. The free service provides 24/7 access to completely confidential free advice on a range of issues from stress & anxiety to financial wellbeing, and is there to support all team members, especially during the current difficult times.
