Management is doing things right; leadership is doing the right things. Peter Drucker
The road to Spokane moves on with our second and final survey, this one is for employers. Last week we started to gather data from working family caregivers in conjunction with my good friend, Denise Brown from Caregiving.com. Denise and I are teaming up again to gather data from employers who may or may not have family caregivers as an employee. If you have not visited Caregiving.com, today is a great to do that too. Denise Brown’s has been helping family caregivers with soothing style and saga advice for over 20 years. Visit Caregiving.com by clicking here!
I wrote about my experience as a working family caregiver extensively in Chapter 5 of my book, “What’s The Deal With Caregiving?” and understand the difficulties from both the employee and employer side of the issue. During my family caregiving experience, I was fortunate to work for Mark Ketcham at SunServe Social Services who understood the special needs of being a family caregiver. Not every working family caregiver is as fortunate as I was to work for someone like Mark Ketcham.
If you are an employer, at any level in your organization, I encourage you to take this survey. The survey is 100% anonymous and will probably will take no more than 10 minutes to complete. We will share the results of the survey once my thesis is completed in May.
