Incorporating Performance Management at Your Organization
As we approach the end of the year, a common practice among many organizations is year-end reviews. However, it is critical that your organization's performance management strategy is broader than end-of-year performance reviews. A year-round approach will set your employees up for success with a clear sense of expectations and how they will be held accountable. We have compiled a resource on how your organization can incorporate performance management through all stages of the employment cycle.
Ensuring Robust Protocols for Elevation Risks
Ropes courses, climbing walls and adventure/challenge activities are a huge part of the camp experience. The off-season is a critical time to review your camp’s supervision and training protocols for all elevation risks and, where necessary, update them. In a recent article for American Camp Association, we discuss protocols your camp can be incorporating now to ensure a safe summer next year.
In our "safety sound bite” series, we focus on timely observations our consulting team is seeing in the field. This week's new topics include:
When preparing for snow and ice ahead of the winter, it is important that your organization is also preparing your company vehicles for winter driving. Download our checklist for a list of key vehicle maintenance and supplies to complete and gather before the winter season.
Many youth will be visiting your pools during their winter breaks. It is critically important, especially as you may have limited staff during the holiday season, that you have a plan in place to make sure that every swimmer who attends open swim is tested, marked and protected. Read more about our recommended Test, Mark and Protect policy.
Layers of Protection when Hiring Volunteers
As you welcome new volunteers into your organization this holiday season, or at the beginning of the year, remain vigilant in your policies and procedures in order to protect the youth in your care from potential abusers. Read more on our recommended layers of protection your organization can implement when hiring volunteers.
