Oak Hill - Living the Mission:

 

A group of approximately 180 representatives from various roles within Oak Hill participated in a two-day kick off retreat for the Living the Mission Project sponsored by the Department of Developmental Services.  The group consisted of Direct Support Staff; the President and Vice President of Oak Hill; Directors; and various program staff from throughout the organization.  A draft report is being circulated to those who attended the two day workshop for an opportunity to provide feedback as to an accurate representation of the suggestions made by those in attendance.  To read the report, click here!

Corporate Media Campaign:

 

Oak Hill has embarked on a Corporate Media Campaign this week and we recently did our first TV commercial shoot.  A special thank you to our "stars": Shauntelle, Timmy, Steve and Barry for their participation!  There are presently 15 second spots airing on NPR and the TV commercial will roll out on WSFB and WVIT in the next week or so.  Below are a few shots from the commercial shoot.  It would be great if everyone would tell their friends and families to watch and listen for our spots.

To All CIB Employees:

 

We have had a few questions concerning how to read the codes on the pay advice.

 

For those who receive payment for overtime pay for hours worked on the Holiday the hours will be included in the total overtime hours on the 1/10 ADP pay advice and future.  There will no longer be a separate pay code showing the hours associated with the hours worked on the holiday.  The Overtime hours will reflect the total number of hours you worked over 40 hours for the week and any hours worked on the holiday that you are entitled to be paid at the overtime rate.  Union employees can refer to their Agreement to determine eligibility for hours paid for holiday time worked. 

 

The Overtime rate is paid at ½ rate because all hours in the Overtime rate are also included in the other regular hours.  The ½ rate is determined by the Dept of Labor Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). 

 

We will update you as we receive more inquiries.  Thank you for your continued patience. 

 

Managers – please post this notice and share with all employees who do not have access to email.  Thank you!!

ADP Sends a Letter of Apology:

 

Staff - Please review the letter of apology from ADP (click here for the letter).  We have received confirmation from employees that they have received their pay.  We will continue to address any issues that you are currently facing as a result of Friday's unfortunate situation.  Please feel free to contact me with any concerns or questions.

 

Again, I cannot stress enough how deeply sorry we are for the hardship this has caused.  As we continue to build our relationship with ADP, we will do everything we can to prevent this from happening again.

 

Thank you

Oak Hill Is Branching Out To Make It Happen!!

Oak Hill’s Human Resources recruiters, Rich Picone and Wendy Dickman, teamed up with Dave Piggot from Community Programs and Melissa Michaud from the Education Department to attend the Middlesex Community County Fair in Cromwell, CT on 10/29/13. Over 50 people came to visit our table and   we received approximately 30 resumes for review.  Quite a few of those have had interviews and are being considered for employment.  Together we are stepping up our efforts to increase awareness of what we do and to more actively reach out to qualified people.  Oak Hill is growing rapidly and we are all working together as a team in our efforts to continue to “Set The Standard".

The Connecticut Council of Family Service Agencies (CCFSA):

 

The Connecticut Council of Family Service Agencies (CCFSA) has announced the graduation of 25 professionals from Connecticut nonprofit agencies who completed this year's Executive Leadership Training Program. This program, with funding from American Express, provided information, training and resources to help these individuals develop the leadership skills necessary to effectively partner with their CEO to carry out each organization's respective mission.

Sponsored by CCFSA, participants learned essential technical skills such as budgeting and finance, strategic planning and governance practices, as well as techniques preparing them for future leadership positions. Over the past three years, The Council has graduated 69 professionals from member agencies throughout Connecticut.

"We're thrilled to help these professionals take the next step toward becoming future leaders of nonprofit agencies," said Kim O'Rielly, CEO of The Council. "The enthusiasm and commitment to excellence exhibited by each participant was recognized and will only benefit the future of family-dedicated organizations throughout Connecticut."


Specifically, the training program consisted of seven full-day learning programs over 7 months focusing on nonprofit organization management with guest lecturers from different fields.

Graduates include Ana Wittig, Vice President, Education and  Ivana Chylinski, Assistant Director, Community Programs.

National Direct Support Professional Recognition Week:

"Please join me in recognizing and thanking our direct support professionals for their dedication to the people we support and their efforts each day in helping people live more independent and productive lives. 

While their dedication is often most noted at a time of urgent need such as a snow storm or a hurricane, it is the daily contact with our program participants that truly defines the work our direct support professionals do.

National Direct Support Professional Recognition Week is a part of ANCOR’s National Advocacy Campaign. ANCOR is our national trade association and its staff and members like Oak Hill worked for passage of the Senate Resolution I have attached. Please note we were able to have Connecticut Senator Chris Murphy sign on as a co-sponsor.

I have also attached statements from CCPA, our state association, recognizing Governor Malloy’s support and from DDS Commissioner Macy expressing his appreciation.

While it has been a challenge at times to have some outside the field understand the value of our direct support professionals to the people we support and their families, we at Oak Hill recognize what an important part they play in helping all of us fulfill our Mission."

Empty Ink Cartridges Needed: 

The Seymour Day Program is continuing to save recyclable empty ink cartridges with the funds used for purchasing items for program participants in the program.  Thus far, the program has purchased a Wii and Wii Games and accessories with the proceeds.  If you wish to donate empty ink cartridges, there is a box in the Group Home Office, the NEAT Center, and in Kim Blondin's office, 2nd floor main building on campus.  "It is a win-win situation...we assist in the recycling efforts and the program participants get to purchase items for the program".
