Staff Amenities

Overall Goal:

Routinely staff members have been assigned break room space in the basement of a home that is furnished with cast offs, has equipment and appliances that often malfunction, and space that is expected to serve the dual purpose for staff who want to socialize as well as those who want some quiet time. Reverse this trend and provide staff with an abundance of spaces including tables in the main dining room, a computer station and quiet space for reading or meditation. Staff  members need a place to get away from it all and they need sufficient space and a diversity of space to accommodate different activities during break time. 

Attention to this very important aspect of the environment communicates to staff that they matter and are valued. Engaging staff in painting or re-decorating helps to develop a sense of camaraderie, trust and pride in the home. Of course, even small reductions in turnover can be well worth the effort!
