Right at Home is nominated for major franchising award

By Ed Hanna

Leading UK homecare company Right at Home has been shortlisted for the Leadership & Culture accolade at the bfa HSBC Franchise Awards, to be held at the Vox, Birmingham, on 27th June 2019.

Right at Home’s UK operation is owned by CEO Ken Deary. Ken’s career as a franchisor and prior to this, a franchisee, spans more than 25 years. Last month, Right at Home celebrated the signing of two new Franchise Agreements, taking its network up to 59 franchisees.

The company provides high-quality homecare to Clients living in the familiar and comfortable surroundings of their own home. It is the most highly rated national homecare agency on the UK’s leading independent review site homecare.co.uk, with an 9.8/10 rating.

The annual bfa awards are the flagship event in the franchising calendar and getting a nomination in itself is a major achievement, proving the business works ethically and in the best interests of franchisees and staff, fighting off many other companies vying for the accolade.

Pip Wilkins, CEO of the British Franchising Association (bfa), congratulated Right at Home: “Right at Home really listens to its network, which is essential for any franchise business. In enabling its franchisees to really have a voice, it has secured its nomination.”

Andrew Brattesani, Head of Franchising, HSBC, said: “Right at Home has shown that it really listens to its entire network to refine best practice, and its commitment to its franchisees and staff are why it has been nominated in the Leadership & Culture category.

“I wish them the best of luck as they compete for the award.”

Commenting on the shortlisting, Right at Home UK CEO, Ken Deary, said: “We are thrilled to be shortlisted for this prestigious award for the support and guidance we provide our franchisees and staff. We place great emphasis on fostering an open and honest culture right across the Network, at every level, so we are pleased that this has been recognised.”

Right at Home has achieved a number of impressive accomplishments over the past 12 months which includes the company’s Best Management Award win at the Best Franchise Awards for a third consecutive year and retaining its 5-star franchisee satisfaction status for a sixth consecutive year. It was also announced this week that Right at Home is nominated for Domiciliary Care Provider of the Year at the 2019 HealthInvestor Awards taking place on 12th June in London.
