Strategic Pillar Highlight
by Lori Sedlezky
SEEC values the work that staff do daily to support people with disabilities to live their desired lives. SEEC is striving to learn more, try new things and be recognized as a leader in how to support and respect this valued workforce.
SEEC is committed to ensuring that all staff are valued and respected in their work and these are principles on which this organization was built. Traditionally, we have used these words when talking about supports to the people with disabilities. If our services are built upon respecting and valuing each person, we must demonstrate these values when interacting with all staff. SEEC’s commitment to staff will be reflected in the commitment and quality of support provided to people with disabilities.
SEEC will ensure opportunities for all staff to be the best they can be at their jobs.
This means that SEEC will provide ongoing opportunities for staff to gain knowledge and further develop their skills. SEEC is committed to the ongoing learning and development of all staff, whether through building a mentoring program, a community of practice, or annual training days.
SEEC strives to have an inclusive culture, recognizing the perspective, insights and opinions of all staff, whether they be DSPs or the Executive Director. Through a participatory culture that values and respects its workforce, SEEC will be a stronger organization.
