There are numerous benefits to volunteering with seniors, as in a previous post we mentioned how providing help can improve the life of residents, staff, and even your life. You can improve the lives of the residents by providing needed assistance, emotional support, and by lending an ear. You can improve the lives of the staff by taking duties off their plate and, in turn, relieving stress. You can better your own life by volunteering in a community and achieving a gratifying experience, that can boost self-esteem. These factors can create happiness for everyone involved, and there are still other benefits that can derive from the joys of volunteering at a senior living community.

As a business owner, I sometimes wish I could plant a “Qualified Lead Tree” behind my office so that when I need a good, qualified business lead I could easily go and pick the best one. It would save my sales team and I a lot of time, money, and headache following up with unqualified or cold leads.

4 Ways you can prevent negativity in Your Community

In our eBook on employee retention in Senior Living, Silversphere explains how employee turnover impacts your business through loss of knowledge and the financial encumbrance of replacing employees.  Employers may not recognize an ongoing reality: Negativity in the workplace affects your employee turnover rates.  Positive people cannot thrive happily in a negative workplace...

Here are 4 ways to prevent negativity in your work environment:

1.  Facilitate Positivity in the Workplace

A workplace environment characterized by toxic emotional negativity will draw and retain toxic, negative people. Over time, negativity will inevitably drive away your most enthusiastic, optimistic, and capable people. On the other end of the spectrum, a workplace environment characterized by encouragement and positive feedback will drive away the negativity. Coworkers should focus on the positive impact they have on each other and be rewarded for keeping the dynamic constructive and successful. It is as simple as ignoring negative comments and walking away from someone who insists on complaining, and giving praise and attention to a staff member who is exhibiting positive behavior.
