Improving the Quality of Life for Those We Serve
Right at Home September 2018 Newsletter Special Edition
What is a Core Value?
Simply put, a core value is a deeply held belief that determines how a person behaves in different situations. Most people have more than one core value. Core values help a person know the difference between right and wrong. They impact our lives in many ways every day. Businesses use core values to guide their decisions to make sure that their employees are reaching the company’s goals. Did you know that we, here, at Right at Home, have a set of core values that we use to measure how well we are meeting our goals? Do you know what they are? Read on to find out more!
Right at Home’s Core Values
► Cooperate with each other
► Do not judge
► Speak up in support of those in need
► Admit and learn from your mistakes
► Make a commitment and keep it
► Be proud of what you do
Our Caregivers are probably thinking, “What does this have to do with me?” That’s a great question!
The answer is…EVERYTHING! We depend on you to represent our core values with each other and our clients. To show our appreciation for those caregivers that display one or more of our core values we are starting a new reward program called the Caregiver Core Value Reward. All of the names of caregivers nominated for core values will go into a drawing. The caregiver whose name is chosen will receive $50!
Introducing the Caregiver Core Value Reward!
How Does it Work?
Every morning during our office stand up meeting we nominate at least one caregiver that displays one or more of our core values. Caregivers may be nominated more than once. All nominated caregiver’s names are put into a box for a drawing that will take place near the end of each month. The more times you are nominated, the more chances you have to win! The winner will get their picture taken with a large presentation check that will be posted on our website with a brief description of why they were nominated. We will also announce the winner in our monthly newsletter. Once the drawing has taken place, the box will be emptied and we will start over with collecting names of nominated caregivers.
How Can I Be Nominated?
So far, caregivers have been nominated for always showing up for their scheduled shifts, showing compassion with a difficult client or during a challenging situation, staying with a client when their relief was late, covering a shift on short notice, and compliments from a client’s family. In other words, living our core values.
