SwanCare Feathers Rewards Program is an initiative introduced to celebrate and acknowledge the incredible work of our team. It’s designed to highlight how our people go above and beyond in their roles, and how they demonstrate the SwanCare values through their work. This could be an act of kindness, or their contributions to a project.
Feathers: Our employer rewards program
Feathers nominations are accepted across seven categories, all based on SwanCare’s values of teamwork, customer service and leadership. To nominate someone, you just need to tell us about them by clicking the link here. In addition to staff nominating their peers, residents and their families are also encouraged to nominate.
Kerrilee Wilson, SwanCare’s People and Culture Operations Manager explains how it all works: “Think of Feathers as being like Flybuys, said Kerrilee. “Staff collect feathers, then they can trade in the feathers for gift credits or vouchers.”
Kerrilee is one of the lucky people who gets to read the nominations and says that it’s a highlight of her job because she learns so much about the incredible work behind the scenes of SwanCare.
“It’s emotional reading some of them,” said Kerrilee. “People say such beautiful things about each other. Hearing about what people are doing for others is a great reminder of what a great place SwanCare is to work. It’s inspiring.”
Together with our partner HBF, we have introduced the new Flare benefits program. Flare provides a number of exclusive discounts for SwanCare staff. With Flare, you’ll get everyday savings with leading Australian retailers online and instore, and gain access to hundreds of savings at over 9,000 locations!
Flare: Exclusive benefits
The best thing about these benefits is that you can tailor them to your own personal needs. Get better healthcare with cheaper health insurance or a discounted holiday through Flight Centre. Other discounts include Woolworths, Ticketmaster, Uber, Target, Amazon, Freedom and BWS. There are no catches, you just have to be working at SwanCare!
SwanCare provide mandatory training for employees, but also offer many elective opportunities. By providing ways to upskill, our aim is to not only satisfy the needs of employees and boost engagement, but to encourage the team to share their knowledge within the wider team. We want to help people upskill for the future and increase their satisfaction in the role they play in the organisation.
Ongoing training and development
Fiona Millar, General Manager of People and Culture talks about the importance of training and development. “Giving our people the opportunity to access training is so important for SwanCare,” said Fiona. “We may be a big organisation, but we want to remain focussed on the individual. We’ve always had a relationship-based approach. We want to provide staff with the ability to access what they need, whether that’s more training or better healthcare benefits.
With a team spread across 15 hectares, it’s difficult to see and acknowledge the efforts and contributions of every staff member. But their hard work does not go unnoticed. Our employee benefits and employee rewards programs are vitally important to maintain connected to the daily work of our people.
There’s a reason why we say we’re a work family.
“You look after others by working at SwanCare (either directly or indirectly),” said Kerrilee. “So, we want to look after you in the best way we can. Our culture is very much about building communities. We do this by supporting staff not just in their work life, but in their lives in general.”
