Tomorrow starts our new Employee of the Month initiative! We begin accepting nominations on January 1 for the best employee of the month. Is there a staff member at Hands from Heaven whose winning personality and friendly disposition has made your days here with us great? That’s what we are looking for! We want to reward those who are giving our members the kind of exceptional care that they have come to expect from us.
What We Are Looking For
This isn’t fast food. We are not going to base the qualifications for Employee of the Month (EOM) on things like how fast you get people in and out of the line. What’s important to us are things that make our members comfortable, happy, and engaged. Those standards are:
- Exceptional Service to Members
- Going Above and Beyond
- He or She Exhibits a Positive Attitude
- He or She is Noticeably Supportive and Caring of Co-Workers and Members
We believe that these qualities are necessary in order to provide world class care to special needs adults. We also know that when employees are recognized for their good work, it has a positive effect on the overall work environment.
While some of us at the facility are hard at work every day, we don’t want it to feel that way for our members. This is their day care facility where they want to be engaged, socialize, where they can enjoy a warm and inviting atmosphere. If our members are not attended to properly or cared for by our staff, they are the ones who will suffer the most.
How to Make a Nomination
That’s why starting on Jan. 1, we will start accepting EOM nominations. You can nominate someone who works within the agency or is a partner through one of our external agencies. If you work at the facility, simply pick up a recognition form, fill it out, and turn it back in to Maria Mock.
If you are a member or a loved one of one of our members, you can also make nominations by calling into the office. Remember, we are going to do this every month so if you aren’t selected as EOM for January 2019 – never fear – you have 11 more opportunities to achieve this honor!
