New Changes Spread Current Employees Too Thin
Operations (Former Employee) – San Juan Capistrano, CA – April 7, 2018
Monarch Shores is a client-oriented program. They have a great group of clinicians and therapists working here. Administrative and accounting are also doing a great job. There has been a lot of new implementations of activities and programs with the new program director coming in, however, this means current employees are being spread so thin. A company that starts overworking their employees without a raise or any incentive, is unwise - because this greatly increases the rate of burnout. The house managers that live with the clients are expected to have absolutely no outside life. As a house manager, I had constantly asked for an assistant for months - with no delivery from upper management. Meanwhile, both MEN'S houses got a house manager and an assistant. If you are going to start raising the expectations of employees - you need to correlate that with a financial raise or some kind of incentive. Spreading employees so thin to the point they feel they cannot handle it, is wrong in so many ways. You need to start valuing the people working in the field with the clients, instead of burning them out.
Poor management, lack of organization among staff, lack of communication between staff
