Imagine this: You’re at home on a Wednesday night and you receive a notification right on your mobile phone from the StaffStat app: “There is a new shift available at Lovely Manor on Saturday from 7:00 – 15:00.” You briefly pause to reflect on your plans for the weekend and tap on the screen to accept the shift.
On Saturday, you arrive at Lovely Manor and the home’s staff are delighted to see you because they greatly require your support. During your 8 hour shift, one resident tells you about their recent visit with their granddaughter, another lights up as soon as you enter their room, and an RN thanks you for your assistance. You leave feeling elated, knowing you made a difference. The next morning, you wake up to an email from our recruitment team with the subject titled “Thanks a Latte”. You open the email and its attachment and see an e-gift card to a coffee shop and a note from our team thanking you for lending your time and talent to a local Long Term Care home.
Fast forward to Tuesday: you have a paper to write, an exam to study for and a presentation to complete. You receive a new StaffStat notification: “There is a new shift available at Happy Manor on Wednesday from 15:00 – 23:00.” Unfortunately, you can’t work this shift because you’re swamped with schoolwork. You tap on your phone to decline the shift. It’s that easy…and it’s completely guilt-free.
I know what you’re probably thinking…it sounds too good to be true. Picking up shifts that work around your schedule—with a simple push of a button? Declining the ones that don’t? A zero-guilt policy? Receiving amazing employee perks and recognition from your employer just by doing your part? Frequently hearing the words “thank you!” and being shown gratitude for helping out? Seeing smiling faces and making a difference in the lives of seniors?
