Capital, Estates, and Facilities competition winner announced.
The winner of our teamphoria competition, in association with Cardiff and Vale University Health Board, (CVUHB) has been announced! Our main prize went to Cheryl Bowden (pictured left), a Reception Porter working at NHS Wales. Last weekend Cheryl claimed her luxury overnight stay at the award-winning Celtic Manor Resort. The prize included dinner, continental breakfast, a relaxing massage and a facial.
Here’s what she had to say about her stay:
“My stay at the Celtic Manor was more than I expected, the staff was so helpful and friendly. The spa and my massage was amazing and has helped me sleep since. Overall I enjoyed my stay and will be returning in August for my birthday!”
We’re happy that we were able to give Cheryl the ultimate ‘night off’ and allow her to be waited on for a change. Kudos to the staff at Celtic Manor Resort.
We also caught up with Keith Prosser – Operational Services Manager:
“Cheryl is a well-liked member of the portering team by colleagues and service users alike. She is very conscientious and prides herself on doing a great job. She always puts patients at ease when transferring them between departments, She’s a natural people person who often goes above and beyond her expected duties.” – A well-deserved win!
Other prizes included:
CVUHB started using teamphoria 7 months ago, and are already seeing value. Using surveys, pulse tracking, recognition, and awards. Our employee engagement software measures company culture and morale in real-time. Since implementation, 65% of Capital, Estates, and Facilities are actively engaged through teamphoria. Features like ‘vent a frustration’ and ‘send an award’ allow users to offload any workplace issues, and award colleagues for work that helped them specifically, or the team. In return, this helps produce a positive working environment where employees are valued. We encourage users to express themselves, this way CVUHB can identify ‘room for improvement’ and identify core issues that link to job dissatisfaction.
Success story: One individual was getting fed up with the parking situation at University Hospital Heath, this was causing him problems before work.
1: He was finding it hard to park.
2: He was working too late for the park and ride.
Lee Wyatt – Head of Estates and Facilities, was able to tackle this issue by adjusting his shift pattern. He’s also speaking with Park & Ride to schedule a later bus time, due to increased demand. This will benefit other colleagues facing the same issue and other hospital visitors too. Parking issues can cause pre-work stress. Minor changes like this can have a positive impact on the way you feel about work. This kind of information usually gets bottled up. Teamphoria helps create a flat communication structure.
We would like to say a massive thank you to all who entered. It’s been great running this competition and meeting some of the team. If you’re part of Capital, Estates, and Facilities, this platform is available to you. Ask your department manager for more information today.
