Promoting Staff into management w/out the proper qualifications nor the capability to perform duties w/in their dept should be monitored. A supervisor should be able to help their staff when a dept is short handed and that is not happening due to lack of skills. Senior leaders should talk to staff when significant problems exist in departments. Employee survey results should be reviewed by senior leaders and an attempt at change should occur or it’s a complete waste of funding to even have an AES.

Report answer

Have a local board of directors like any non-profit, hold the directors to the law. The VISN does not have real supervisory care of the individual facilities, but if there was a board of Veterans that were the persons the director had to answer to things would be different. The entire management of the hospital would be changed.

Make HR do their job the way it was meant to be done no favoritism no preferences no letting management decide and absolutely take the automatic fill the position by management without any competitiveness within the VA employees away. Too much favoritism and back deals being made. Hold all employees and MAnAGERS accountable so favoritism IS NOT ALLOWED and absolutely NO nepotism in the same Dept.
