Staff wellbeing

We want to make ENS the best place to work, and create a stress-free, productive workplace that is committed to promoting positive staff well being.

To do this, in 2018 we partnered with mental health charity, South East and Central Essex Mind (SECE Mind) to help raise money and awareness for mental health. Throughout 2018, we raised an astounding £1800 via a series of fundraisers throughout the year, including ‘Beat the Seats’ and the ‘ENS Parachute jump’.

As well as that, SECE Mind provided mental health training, which has helped everyone better understand and manage their well being at work. It has also shaped new processes and procedures at ENS to better accommodate mental health at work; something we’re very proud of! Click here to read our Wellbeing Commitment.

As part of our journey to improving staff well being, we have launched a stress hotline and introduced well being meetings over the past 12 months.

In 2019, the team is truly excited to continue our excellent work with SECE Mind. As part of our pledge to improving staff well being, here’s our mental health commitment for 2019:

Our goal at ENS is to have a productive work place with positive wellbeing, visibly being committed to positive mental health.

We recognise that at times our jobs and lives can be tough, and we want you to know that we are here to support you.

We aim to do this by creating a culture of communication, transparency, and emotional intelligence. In doing so, we will be able to understand and respond to each other in a professional and empathetic way creating a balanced work place. #ItsOkayToNotBeOkay!

What people are saying about ENS

ENS has been our sole agency provider for the past 8 years. During this time we have worked in partnership to establish an agency service that provides us with the assurance that ENS staff are flexible, highly trained and able to adapt to our working environment across all of our diverse services.
ENS has been able to support our services to a very high standard throughout our geographical locations. Key Performance Indicators often exceed agreed outcomes.
Our relationship with their senior team and operational supervisors is professional and open. We are assured that our long standing working relationship with ENS will continue.
To this end we would not hesitate to recommend ENS as an agency provider to support their organisation.

We needed to fill two last minute vacancies with high quality teachers.  With this brief, Julie from ENS did not disappoint.  One candidate was from Canada and Julie ensured that the move over went as smoothly as possible both for the teacher and the school. 
What impressed me the most was how Julie listened to exactly what I required and so no time was wasted on my part, sifting through candidates who would not have been good enough for my school. I would highly recommend ENS to another school looking to fill their teacher vacancies.

My daughter Lynda has enjoyed 24 hour care provided by ENS since July 2013. The care staff are all well trained & briefed as to her complex healthcare regime & are also very sociable. This is very important to Lynda who loves to talk &interact with them. They also manage her household budget, encourage her to participate in domestic tasks within her capabilities, & promote a healthy lifestyle. The administration of ENS is excellent & has ensured that Lynda has a regular rota of carers & that when stand ins are necessary that they have had shadow shifts with her.
