What would you suggest Encompass Health management do to prevent others from leaving?
Make the productivity points be based on branch census and just a set standard company wide. Hire a Clinical social worker to be over all the social workers so the sw can feel supported and supervised by someone that knows the field!
After being cursed out by a district manager, due to a miscommunication on his end, I informed him and my direct manager that I would be putting in my two weeks. I was informed that two weeks wasn’t necessary, because if I didn’t want to be there, he didn’t want me. I was terminated on the spot.
The most challenging type of patient, most memorable. How long have you done home health( I am pretty sure they had my resume in the folder they had with them, that they never opened or looked at during the interview). I called back over 3 weeks later and asked if they has made a decision on who they had selected ( or if they had) they said they were still conducting interviews. I found this interesting, I have over 15 years of home care experience and do not need to be trained in the EMR they use, as I have used it for several agencies in the past.
I may have been "out of their budget" on pay, based on my clinical experience. ???
Application, your references have to do a survey, if you pass the survey than interview with the branch manager
If you were in charge, what would you do to make Encompass Health a better place to work?
Management staff need to be more sensitive with the needs and feelings of their staff
Culture is very cliquey. Therapy staff are favored over nurses. Often they rules are bent for therapy staff but kept very rigid for nurses. Upper management changes in recent years have caused quite a bit of tension and quite a few BD's left due to the poor treatment
What tips or advice would you give to someone interviewing at Encompass Health?
Be prepared to be over worked entirely. Starting out they will make it look like it is all nice and be helpful but after a couples everything goes down hill. They will always call you to pick up days, not trying to give yourself a break to just keep over working you and your body. Patients and family members can be rude and ask for a lot. Supervisors do not care about employees health, only about the patients.
