Rehab Walk founder, Chris Barton was able to utilise his experience with Virgin Unite’s Action Network by building on the key belief he and his team held within their company, as well as introduce new core values. Here he describes what he gained out of the journey.
Rehab Walk is a company that provides physiotherapy for people affected by neurological conditions and muscular diseases. We particularly specialise in work with children and young adults.
The Action Network’s ‘People Challenge’ really assisted the company in exploring various ways to embed core values into the business. There was an introduction of a staff member of the month, whom was rewarded with a bottle of wine, and a poster was designed and hung in the workplace to remind staff what the values were. This proved to be really valuable to us since we only had a little understanding of what core values truly were at first.
We have always firmly believed that if we put children first and always do the best job we can at all times, then success for the company will follow. Two firm beliefs we have honed since taking part in the ‘People Challenge’ include:
- Empowering our clients to achieve their full potential
- Making a difference to our client's quality of life, as well as their family’s quality of life
The Action Network’s ‘People Challenge’ has taught me to research, write out and now implement my core values and beliefs. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed being part of the experience and plan on continuing to expand on these core values, as I expand my company.
