Great work-life balance and benefits, terrific volunteers, engaged and passionate colleagues
Despite recent claims to the contrary, executive management still operates based on the emergency or whim of the moment, with no real strategic plan in place or long-term organizational vision. Staff, both new and old - whether they are enthusiastic or not, are not supported with appropriate resources or direction from their directors. There is renewed hope that the new board chair will see the deficits in management and make changes that will benefit the staff, volunteers, donors and families we serve. This remains to be seen.
Advice to Management
Listen, whether you agree or like the messages or not, to what your employees are saying. There are nuggets of truth you can glean. Not every employee who has been branded as "angry" began that way and not every employee - past or present - is "wearing rose colored glasses." People want to be treated with respect and feel that they bring value. That does not happen consistently and needs to change if AS wants to continue to be a positive force and raise the funds it needs. Service to a mission and the people associated with that mission has gone missing as a concept in recent years. Make service and respect a business priority and AS will indeed turn around.
