Support from management
Whole Health management very sneaky & micro manages from office sending tons of emails to staff, but not willing to talk.
Whole Health management pits staff against each other & does not promote teamwork. Manager poor communicator.
Freedom to work independently
Freedom to work independently, however getting mixed messages from manager in Whole Health.
Attitude towards older colleagues
In Whole Health, older colleagues not treated respectfully or valued their experience.
VHA employee development does try to offer helpful career development opportunities for staff.
Office / Work Environment
Whole Health program was forced to begin functioning before area available for staff prepared. Staff interspersed & cramped into another department area while forced to develop programing & work with Veterans.
Whole Health leadership very phony & not trustworthy. Thus creating poor environment for staff to adequately flurish.
Unfortunately Veterans Medical Center does not have a very good image in the community. It's a few that view it as a job & not honoring or truly caring for the Veterans.
Government can & will find a way to get rid of you if they want.
Whole Health area very poor air quality. Poor contracted housekeeping for Whole Health remote location.
Veterans are a special group of people & they can be challenging to care for.
Inclusive / Diverse
Whole Health department few staff allowed to not include some staff for unknown reason, even after reporting to management.
Suggestions for improvement
- If VHA does not listen to the lower line workers, I can see it being necessary to privatize Veteran healthcare in the near future.
