July 2, 2020  As we continue to create remarkable senior living experiences, we recognize that good attendance and PTO are critical to our success. We’ve taken some time these last couple of months to review our policies and wanted to share some changes with you. 

Our attendance policy is changing to include occurrences and additional one-on-one coaching.  You can review the new policy here.

We have also made changes to our PTO policy. We strive to offer a competitive benefits package, and paid time off is no exception. The new increased accrual rates can be viewed in the policy here.

These changes will go into effect in July. Please let us know if you have any questions. 

Check out our Randall Residence Culture Book here.  You might find a picture of yourself in it's pages.

And here's a great opportunity for each of you.  MassMutual has a FREE life insurance program for eligible workers on the front lines of the COIVD-19 pandemic.  Learn more here.

Thank you, again, for all that you do every day for our residents! 

 

 


 

June 2020  Randall Residence is a Certified Great Place To Work. One of the ways we accomplish that is with open, honest communication. Our goal is to remain transparent in all of our communication while providing you an easy access link to view at your convenience.

We have added this webpage to provide updated tools and the most up to date communication.  This page has been designed especially for you – our team members!

Celebrate Wins!

Your discipline to infection control both at work and at home on a daily basis is paying off! As of today, no/zero residents at any Randall Residence have tested positive for COVID-19. A handful of associates did test positive over the last 11 weeks (6 out of 800), but thankfully most were asymptomatic or very light cases and all have recovered.

It is encouraging to see the downward trend in COVID infections. However, we must remain vigilant to protect our vulnerable residents, our co-workers, and family/friends. Opportunities for exposure are greater as we begin to return to restaurants, salons, and gatherings with family and friends. See the fun handwashing video here.

Many families have expressed their gratitude for the way you are caring for their loved ones when they cannot be physically present themselves. It is humbling as I read the notes and cards, facebook posts, and see treats and meals delivered. Thank you for being Randall Remarkables!

Appreciation Pay/COVID Time Off

Appreciation pay was given to all Randall Residence employees to coincide with the stay-at-home orders ($2/hour).  As Ohio, Michigan and Illinois relax these orders, and we navigate through the re-opening, we have chosen to transition to $1/hour, 5/17/20-5/30/20.  Michigan will continue at this rate until 6/13/20, when their Stay at Home Order expires.

We continue to offer paid medical leave to those who are ordered by Randall Residence or their physician to take time off due to COVID illness.

Guidelines for Move-Ins and New Hires

Guidelines and best practices have been developed to help ensure safety from the virus as we onboard new team members and accommodate new residents. This includes assessing potential exposure and then pre-admission/pre-hire COVID testing and quarantining as appropriate.

Building Our Team

Who you work with makes a big difference.  Many job seekers read employee reviews to identify places they’d like to work. Authentic reviews from associates like you, listing the pros and cons, can help us appeal to top candidates during this unprecedented time and helps us find your next co-worker. Please consider contributing your honest feedback. Leave a Review here.

Additional Resources for Support

Many of us have experienced significant challenges due to the outbreak of the Coronavirus (COVID-19). We recognize that these changes and uncertainty can cause stress, anxiety and other concerns.

It’s also more important than ever to look after your well-being. An Employee Assistance Program (EAP) is available to you and your families. This free program offers counseling with local, licensed, certified counselors and referrals to various resources for stress, grief and dealing with loss.

Additionally, we know that many families are experiencing financial challenges as a result of the COVID-19 situation. GreenPath Financial Wellness is a great resource for support.
