Building an Engaging Employee Culture To Scale Growth Of A Business

Since most human service direct support and supervisory positions are designed to pay employees on salary or by the hour, these are flawed contingencies that only reinforce the passing of time as opposed to active engagement by the clinicians. In fact, active engagement by clinicians with learners is increased response effort on the part of the employee and can often occasion more problem behavior by the learner than simply passively standing by. In essence, the systems are already rigged against active employee engagement. This presentation discussion details specific pay for performance strategies that can produce peak levels of employee engagement to better support the learners they serve. Key performance indicators to measure quality growth and employee engagement are also discussed in detail.
