Empowering Staff: The how-to of self-scheduling, consistent assignment & team leadership

NOV 1, 2012 at 1:00-4:00pm

Empowering your staff to take a more active role in your senior care organization could be the piece you have been missing to move you forward on your culture change journey.

Glyndon Ruth Kimbrough

Join us as Glyndon Ruth Kimbrough and her team share their successful strategies on staff self-scheduling, where direct-caregivers develop their own schedules and independently handle the tasks of scheduling, trading shifts/days, and covering for one another; and consistent assignment, which allows staff to develop ongoing relationships with the residents. You will also learn how this workforce redesign develops the leadership skills of direct care staff and empowers them to truly impact the daily life experience of those they serve.

Learning Outcomes

  • Discover how to implement self-scheduling and consistent assignment from those who have successfully adopted the practices
  • Realize the benefits of these practices for your residents and staff, and for your bottom line
  • Discuss the barriers to successful implementation, as well as solutions to those challenges
  • Examine how self-scheduling and consistent assignment develop the leadership skills of your direct care staff
