What is it like to work for KeyRing Living Support Networks

Leadership

The senior management team are directly contactable on a day to day basis by anyone in the organisation. They aim to live by the values which means they value everyone equally and everyone is included. Everyone has a right to express themselves and be respected for who they are and they can influence the way the organisation works. Also each Senior manager has a team who they are nominated to link with in a back to the floor style and celebrate successes or raise issues at senior level.

They update their staff regularly as to changes and improvements which are made as a result of their feedback. Particularly useful is a document created to address the different areas staff wanted to see improvements in over the past few years. They have a Learning Programme called KeySteps. This lays out how someone's development progresses from their date of join. Its starts with Induction, moves through Mandatory training and role related training, leadership development and coaching etc. This is supported by the new Appraisal process, the Personal Development Star.

They have a scheme called Respecting Others Champions. This is where employees are trained to support other employees in matters which they might not want to raise formally or that a colleague can help them to address. This is mostly linked to supporting Equality at Work but can be related to anything. This was reinvigorated recently at the request of The SCC and other staff and has generated a good deal of interest. They have changed the Appraisal system to be much more of a conversation around personal and leadership development than a tick box exercise. This has been very well received.
