Bethphage is a Positive Behaviour Organisation (PBO), you will hear us talk about this a lot. PBO means valuing everyone, treating everyone respectfully and recognise them for their skills and strengths. We extend this to everyone we support, their families and our most precious assets, our staff. At Bethphage, team members take time to reflect, suggest new ideas, challenge themselves and their colleagues in the PBO way and work innovatively and positively together.
We’re very proud that we have just been recognised as GOLD Investors in People and this means you can be sure our receiving the very best levels of management support and training when you work for us. Our own staff described our managers as “open, approachable, accountable, responsive, flexible, caring, fair and supportive, whilst the assessors commented on the strength of our positive culture, inspirational leadership, learning culture and respect for people’s work-life balance and wellbeing.
We can’t achieve our vision of a society where people with disabilities have the same opportunities to develop and use their talents and skills as everyone else without the right people. So to achieve this we need enthusiastic staff who work effectively together and have a strong desire to make a difference, learn and develop best practice. Focusing on enabling people to be active in their communities and develop their range of interests and hobbies, you will support people using our person-centred approaches to identify the things they like, things they are good at and things they have no experience of, but given the other things they enjoy, they may just like!
We’re always looking for people who seek out new ways of working and who aren’t concerned with, “we have tried it before and it didn’t work”. Because we believe there’s always another way to approach things and by changing the time, the venue or the people involved, it might just work!
Helping the people we support to lead active lives in their community, develop positive thinking, be involved in every aspect of their lives and run the running of their home is vital to developing their self-esteem and confidence and that’s what we’re about! With a support team who are thoughtful, caring, compassionate, and empathetic and committed… life can only get better!
