What is HR, why am I here and what will I be doing? (Blog post by Anna Hepworth Ellis)

For Blue Sky Enabling, our Enabler’s performance and wellbeing is vital to our continuing success. Human Resources is all about managing, developing and training the organisation’s greatest asset – our Employees.

Blue Sky Enabling is going through a period of positive change and expansion. We have been reviewing, revising and enhancing procedures that support the efficiency of our organisation. This includes the interview and induction program and so far the changes have been well received. We aim to be a learning organisation that can adapt to future changes as well continuing to solidify our foundations. We believe that by building our quality assurance checks such as regular auditing across the board, we can provide a secure working environment and secure service to our service users.

I have been working on a Performance Management System which will hopefully increase organisational transparency and communication as well as guide our staff to achieve their full potential.

At the core of our work is Blue Sky Enabling’s Mission statement:

“To enable people of different abilities to live lives of their own choosing as included members of their communities”

My role in achieving this mission will be to continue to enable our staff to be the best that they can be.

Any insights, questions or queries are always welcome and appreciated, so please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

The blood moon

This week for those of us fortunate enough to see it, we experienced a blood moon – there is no special paint-box that turns the moon crimson it’s just the combination of a clear night sky, and a full moon coupled with a full lunar eclipse creating a moment of perfection.

Ordinary elements brought together in a unique way creating magic.

Someone’s passing too can be said to be part of the ordinary every day happenings of human life – but the right combination of care and support and family can make even the darkest days a magical experience.  This week we supported a lovely lady of 98 and her family as she made her final journey.  Each moment was gentle and loving for her and her son and daughter, their spouses and children, cousins, nephews and nieces so that they experienced her passing as a blood moon, a treasured and wondrous celebration of her life.  That’s Blue Sky Enabling where Life is for Living, and someone’s passing is an opportunity for a new beginning.
