Treat people with respect. Respond to their phone calls, e-mails & request. Be honest up front. Let the lead person run the house and do the scheduling. Having meetings to get employees input and try to work with everyone. Clean house if employees are not doing their jobs and not doing what the lead/supervisor asked of them. The majority of the employees are making free money. By that, they are doing nothing and I do mean nothing. Sleeping on the job, doing their personal business on the job, on phones the entire shift.
I would show more respect and appreciation to the staff. They have a difficult job that takes a lot of care and patience. Not everyone can do this job. The staff are the real MVP. Juggling home and work, managing to keep it all together. We are the ones spreading love and kindness across the board. Taking care of everyone. Who's taking care of us? We need better pay, more PTO hours, Love and care too.
Clean House start from to top to bottom
Everything clean house from top to bottom
I would listen to my employees and not get mad at them for calling out in a snow storm when their baby sitter cancelled. I gave my notice when Jeanie gave me a hard time about that! This was only a per diem job for me and sorry I couldn’t leave my kids alone for $20 an hour!
I would give the Direct Care staff a $2 pay increase which will prevent employee turnovers due to lack of adequate compensation for the responsibilities we have.
Id give the staff the ability to help make major improvements in individuals lives.

I would listen to my employees more when it comes to ideas because they work with the individuals in the homes and work facilities more closely.
