The company is a great one for welcoming new staff and offering thorough, nurturing orientation. However, after the orientation, the work chewed people up and spit them out. Working with patients and families was terrific, rewarding, and fulfilling, but management was quite happy for staff to burn themselves out, while offering lip service to the idea of self care and support. Money, not people, was the bottom line. During periods of growth, management was typically unprepared for the growth, not hiring enough staff to accommodate the increased work load and not supporting staff who were overwhelmed. Staff morale suffered greatly at the hands of management who seemed to have little familiarity or sympathy for the workers in the field. Seemingly high turnover of staff was an indicator that a so-called caring organization did not regard staff personnel as customers/clients, caring for them less than the budgetary bottom line, which seems pretty typical of businesses these days.
good welcome and orientation.
high turnover, poor regard and care for staff
