Skills upgrade, care for our people – MWSʼ most valuable asset
As the adage goes – happy staff, happy clients. MWS believes in investing in our staffʼs well-being as it enables us to better serve our beneficiaries.
In the past FY, staff underwent rigorous training that included further honing of their trauma-informed care skills; systems training to improve workplace safety and productivity at our nursing homes; and leadership and skills upgrade for staff in palliative care and medicine, among others.
Beyond skills upgrade, MWS also took special efforts to appreciate frontline staff who bore additional care burden during the pandemic. In addition to recognition awards and treats, some nursing staff were given additional days off while social workers could apply for sabbatical leave for a time of recharge.
Recognising the vital role of volunteers in MWSʼ mission, the inaugural Empowering Life Awards held in July 2021 paid tribute to volunteers who had made significant contributions to MWS.
