Human Resource Management
The quality of life of your residents is influenced by the people who serve them every day. Our multifaceted Service Diamond Program delivers and ensures service excellence across the entire organization.
Human Resource Management is made up of the following:
Recruitment – Core Competencies and Behavioral Interviewing
By helping you define the core competencies for your candidates, we help you see beyond job skills and technical abilities. Our process helps you uncover attitudes, values and habits that are directly related to the effectiveness and potential success of each employee.
Behavioral Interviewing then helps you determine whether someone has a core competency. Our behavioral interview guides help you ask the right kinds of questions in order to select the best candidate for the job and for your organization.
Customer Service Training
Our Customer Service Curriculum delivers what your residents and customers expect and deserve: Respect, Attention, Knowledge, Extra Effort and Follow Through. Our training will transform your community. Your staff will project a different feeling and create an environment that people are drawn to. Your residents will see that staff members “get it”.
Extended Family’s Leadership Development program combines skills-based training with character-based leadership discovery work to allow each individual identify her/his brand of leadership.
Our leadership program boosts self-awareness and enables individuals to create a more effective way to manage their energy, relationships, responsibilities and time.
Quality Process/Improvement Management
Our Quality Improvement management will help improve services and measure outcomes throughout the community. We strive to meet or exceed stated objectives and comply with relevant standards consistently.
