  • Conduct new associate onboarding & orientation and training, as well as ongoing in-service education to meet staff needs and comply with regulatory requirements. Document all trainings.
  • Work with Community Relations Director (CRD) to maintain local outreach and education efforts in the surrounding city and nearby locations. Encourage positive relationships and marketing opportunities.

  • Utilize staffing models to guide scheduling within each department, daily/weekly Kronos reports to monitor labor use and overtime, bi-weekly labor reports to review hours used and monitor spend-down sheets provided from each department head.
  • Prevent accounts receivable charge-offs by reviewing A/R aging weekly and following up on all unpaid accounts, charging late fees, and through timely issuance of move-out letters each month. Make certain the assessment given to the resident matches the billing spreadsheet.
  • Minimize worker’s compensation claims by providing in-services for high-risk areas and proactively working with risk management to reduce dollar costs when claims do occur. Direct employees in need of health care to the most appropriate level of care, as outlined on our worker’s compensation list of approved doctors and hospitals.
