Our values are the principles we live by, who we are and define our culture. We bring these to life every single day in all we do. We are:
We demonstrate our values by supporting community activities and local charities. We offer an Apprenticeship scheme and support the Prince's Trust. With our railway heritage, we work closely with the Railway Benefit Fund, helping them with Christmas card orders and joining their ‘loneliness’ coffee mornings.
There’s a strong community spirit so that successes are celebrated in a way that recognises individual and team achievements. We can make your experience with us memorable, comfortable and enjoyable, where everyone feels included, supported, valued and are genuinely proud of working at Health Shield. That is why we believe carrying out an engagement survey to seek their feedback and identify areas of improvement is key.
Our employee "AIM" (All Ideas Matter) forum is open to all employees, the forum is involved in decision making, with members views and input used to shape the Society.
Working smarter and better is driven by our learning and development opportunities. From a tailored induction programme created by your manager, to ongoing encouragement through regular 1-2-1s and yearly reviews, there’s opportunity to identify areas where we can help you achieve your career aspirations. You can pop along to a ‘Lunch and Learn,’ fill a skill or knowledge gap by doing an online course, or go all out and study for a qualification; we empower our people to strive to make a difference through education.
