About Princess Alice Hospice

What is it like to work for Princess Alice Hospice

Giving Something Back
Giving Something Back
In addition to its paid employees, the Hospice is supported by over 1,000 volunteers both at the Hospice itself, and in its retail outlets. The social capital created by these volunteering opportunities makes a huge contribution to the local community. Research by the Charity Retail Association highlights the very positive impact that charity shops have in their local community.

My Company
My Company
Princess Alice Hospice encourage their employees to communicate upwards. Staff have regular 121 meetings and team meetings with their manager where they can share ideas and give feedback. Each manager has regular 121's with their line senior manager who can bring things to the attention of the senior management team and the Board of Trustees. They also meet regularly as a manager/senior manager group. For example, the idea for the sensory gardens they established this year came from a senior healthcare assistant on the ward and became part of the garden project approved by the Board.

Fair Deal
Fair Deal
As a charity their ability to use money as a reward is restricted, however they seek to celebrate success and additional effort by publicly thanking staff in their weekly all staff newsletter. In addition, their chief executive personally thanks staff who have gone the extra mile. They are keen to establish an employee reward and recognition scheme but want to do it in a way that is valued by all their staff so are planning to consult with staff so that they have a better sense of what would be meaningful to them.
