Sharing a compliment

We know that family and friends often compliment support workers and managers on the great job they do in supporting their loved ones.

We also know that many of our colleagues feel uncomfortable about telling their team about the compliments they have received so they miss out on a chance to be recognised for their good work, and possibly win an award.

Every year colleagues across Dimensions are nominated for our Inspiring People awards and the starting point for these awards can be a simple compliment from the family and friends of people we support. It’s not all about the awards though, a simple thank you can mean the world to our colleagues.
