Companion Care always try to ensure that all of their colleagues utilise all of their holiday entitlement along with taking time back for additional work they may do. They also actively promote regular rest breaks and none of their colleagues are contracted to work over 40 hours per week. They continue to monitor hours worked to ensure that they can spot any pressure points before they become an issue. Companion Care also offer Cycle2Work along with a number of other health related schemes.

All of the events Companion Care run are designed to bring their teams and functions together breaking down some of the barriers that can develop. Their Directors and board are always involved in their events to lead by example and show what a great team they are. Recently Companion Care expanded their Support Office into a new building and they ran competitions with the team to name the rooms, send pictures of their pets for the walls and their Directors held a free "Barn Warming" celebration with drinks, champagne and treats to welcome their colleagues and to present the "winners" with their prizes. Throughout the development of this expansion colleagues from different departments were involved to make sure areas such as the colleague rest area was designed how they would like it to be.
