Suggestions for improvement

  • Give the employees a voice to offer ideas for improvement of current policies like staffing, and certain aspects of patient care that are not effective. Surely, collective thought on certain aspects would bring about more answers than just a few in charge.

What I like about the company

The opportunity to help and to see patients regain theirLife back after major incidents/injury is the biggest reward. Although there is little room for advancement in certain departments, one’s skill and experience will definitely grow in depth and expertise.

What I dislike about the company

Because of increases in patient load, mandatory overtime has been the remedy.I disagree to this decision and would rather management utilize PRN positions or hire more staff instead. Also, we’ve been required to to more tasks with less staff. Likemany facilities, what seems like a great idea administratively may not be practicalOr realistic

Company Culture

I think overall things are very fair here. I wouldn’t have stayed if they had not been. People are friendly to each other for the most part.

Support from management

Good support from upper management.

Teamwork

Departments seem to cooperate well with each other.

Freedom to work independently

Sometimes yes, other times no.

Internal Communication

Improving with new computer system instituted recently.

Gender Equality

See above.

Attitude towards older colleagues

This is where there may need to be some progress made. Not as much value placed on a worker that can’t move as fast as they used to, which is sad, given their knowledge base and familiarity with policies and procedures, and their rapport with membrs of certain groups. There are some departments that excel at this, however. So there are efforts being made.

Career Development

I think it depends on the department you are in and the your relationship with your manager.

Overall compensation for your work

I think I’m well compensated for my position.

Office / Work Environment

Typical work environment. Modern equipment and they try to keep up by updating things regularly.

Environmental Friendliness

Very friendly overall. Welcoming to all.

Work-Life Balance

They do a fair job on this one. Some departments are better than others.

Company Image

Great image in the community.

Job Security

Fair. I sometimes worry.

Handicapped Accessibility

Extremely accessible.

Workplace Safety

I would say average to above average.

Challenging Work

Most of the time, a good level of challenge.

Inclusive / Diverse

Very inclusive of different groups of people—gender identity, whether the person is gay, straight, trans, they are inclusive. I can’t speak as knowledgeably about racial diversity in our workplace.

Suggestions for improvement

  • I think an effort towards inclusion of some older workers.

What I like about the company

It has a great image in the community and great reputation. Friendly staff.

What I dislike about the company

I sometimes feel a little insecure about my job. Just occasionally.
