An orientation for new employees needs to be done to show them how to take care of daily tasks, i.e. ordering supplies, submitting time sheets, filling out certain forms (especially tracking forms) etc. Comments
Comments • My one major concern with this organization is the lack of annual salary increases. A minimum of a 3% cost of living adjustment should be worked into the budget every year. That way, when we have a tough year like this one, there is more of a chance to keep that rather than not allow for anything when budgeting so that when you have a year like this one, you have no hope of adding it in. Also, if employees were rewarded better during the good years they would be a lot more flexible in years like this when they are told, "Sorry, we have nothing for you this year. We can't afford it." That gets old a lot more quickly when you haven't gotten a raise in 3 or 4 years (even when times were good).
Comments • I feel satisfied with the people I work with, my supervisor, and the work that we do. • I would also like opportunity to increase my salary and have better benefits like retirement and medical coverage. • Feel that we should have more opportunities to advance in the organization and should get raises or bonuses at least once a year.
Comments • Health insurance is very expensive, a lot of out pocket expense. • Paid maternity/paternity leave is something that would be beneficial and help morale. • Lack of salary increases is something that motivates me to look elsewhere to work.
