Our people will have access to information on support and training available to them to create a rewarding career via the HAPI platform. Now vital information about Swanton’s Talent Builder, qualifications to aid career progression and suggested next steps are available at the touch of a button. Swanton Recruitment Advisor Lauren Batty said they hope to support the great people who work in the business to fulfil their potential. Lauren said:
“We’re so excited to give our terrific talent the chance to progress within Swanton and launch brilliant careers. We’ve got Practice Development Practitioners in every region to support people’s training and development and give them opportunities. The beauty of our business is that people can begin in junior roles and work their way up, obtaining funded qualifications whilst they learn on the job. It’s an amazing chance to do work that matters and really makes a difference in people’s lives.”
Swanton has also shined the spotlight on mental health and is offering support to anybody in the business who is struggling. Alongside the 28 mental health first aiders who are trained to listen, support and guide people, there are resources on the app too.
“We recognise the importance of protecting the mental health of the people who work at Swanton. That’s why we’ve got our Employee Assistance Programme, where our team members can access confidential counselling whenever they need it. Everything is there on the HAPI app to make it easier to find support.”
With the cost of living crisis putting a terrible strain on households, Swanton hopes to ease the burden with financial benefits.
“On the HAPI platform, you can find a host of everyday discounts for things such as shopping, entertainment and discounted gym memberships. There’s also a host of articles to give you advice on your finances, details about our cycle to work scheme and life cover policy. We know that knowledge is power, so the combination of Swanton discounts and benefits, alongside great content with tips and advice, will prove useful.
“It’s our goal that every one of our employees can live well and enjoy working in our supportive community.”
