Electronic Internal Transfer Process Effective June 1, 2015


We are excited to announce that Oak Hill is moving to a paperless electronic transfer process for all internal transfers effective June 1, 2015.  All employees will be required to submit transfer requests through our new Applicant Tracking System.  Managers and Supervisors will be trained on the new process and they then will hold communication sessions with their staff prior to June 1.  This process is easy to use and will enhance our ability to process transfers more quickly.


You will continue to be able to view postings on the intranet as you currently do and will be able to submit your transfer requests electronically by directly accessing the specific posting.


What should I do? To prepare for this transition, the best thing you can do is ensure that you have access to your Oak Hill e-mail account.  Effective June 1, all transfer request communications will be handled via your Oak Hill e-mail account only.


More information will be forthcoming for this exciting new capability to further enhance and streamline our work processes.

DDS Contract Performance Review:

On Wednesday, we had our annual DDS Contract Performance Review meeting. While we will talk more specifically about the results in our meetings during May, we thought it important to give you an overall sense of the review with representatives of all three Regions.

Our services are viewed as among the best, with our Quality Service Review scores well above the statewide averages. People are satisfied with our services. As it was put to us, people stay with us. They don’t ‘vote with their feet’ - that is, exercise portability. Other metrics reviewed were just as positive.

The model that we use to support our CCHs was described as ‘unique’ and that was a positive comment. There was recognition that we were able to provide talented, experience people, that we had back-up systems in place and that we worked with the preferences of the CCH providers to make good matches.

They acknowledged that we pay a livable wage and provide good health benefits and they recognized the challenge of doing so under the LON-based rate system. We made sure they knew that it was important for us as agency to do so, even though it has been made incredibly difficult because of policy decisions made by DDS.

We do have some things that we could do better, but that is a part of the continuous improvement process.

The positive results achieved could not have happened without your commitment to our mission and the people we support. This is most critical at the point of contact with program participants, but also includes everyone in all areas of Oak Hill that support the daily work that is being done.

Thanks to all of you who help “set the standard.”

Anita, Ivana, Dave and Stan

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!!

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."
