Management needs help managing for 1 they are all over the place and managers don't stick around I went through 3 Managers in the past year. Maybe by offering a raise and more hours to part time employees instead they make you feel like you have no choice but to leave because you list them all your concerns and they do nothing about them and instead I feel they rather hirer somebody that's new just so they won't have to give raises and the new hirer is clueless without training and they can be back at the salary rate for this indiviual which means more money for them. The bosses are so lazy they just sit up there in the office and ask employees to move to different sites because they are so under staff. Definitely all employees are not treated fairly! Worst job ever.

Practice what they preach in the mission statement. Especially true at the Madison Area YMCA. Extremely poor and unqualified managers, a lot of female back stabbing that is tolerated by HR. High turn over rate is a huge sign. Also basing an employees review on how much money they contribute to the annual campaign. Last I looked that is against 401-3b ethics. But that is what they do their and get away with it.

Pay teachers and assistant teachers more in childcare. Its a very demanding role, yet also an important role at the Y.

Back up your employees and also pay people decently. If you want to live in squalor work for the Y you’ll be broke in no time.

Schedule mindfully. You wouldn't want to work one day, off one day, and repeat that insanity over and over (NOBODY would want that), so just don't schedule your employees that way because they deserve and need a decent rest just like you do, to give you their best effort and avoid getting run down and sick. (My company is VERY good, generally, about giving you specifically requested time off, and not scheduling us very late one day, then really early the next.)

Hire managers that are educated to their jobs and the jobs of their staff. How can a manager lead if they are clueless to the jobs their staff do. In order to keep staff they need to be treated fairly and respected by upper management. Management need to make sure their staff have a passion for the jobs they do.
