Of-the-Month Awards
Do you know someone who is innovative, positive, or made an outstanding contribution? Nominate LIFEDesigns staff or customers for Customer of the Month, Team of the Month, Employee of the Month, or Direct Support Professional of the Month by completing an online nomination form. The honorees will be determined by the Leadership Team based on the nomination forms.

All staff should use the Employee Development Review  to get feedback on their job performance. At least one EDR is required quarterly, with a minimum of 4 annually. Staff can ask for feedback from co-workers, supervisors, individuals they serve, and  parents/guardians. Staff can also do self-evaluations. Completed EDR forms should be submitted to Human Resources and will be reviewed at least annually during the Employee Review process.

New employees at LIFEDesigns are required to complete a combination of online, classroom, and on-the-job training designed to prepare them for their new positions. In addition to agency and customer specific training, our orientation program provides certification in:  

  • The American Red Cross CPR and First Aid
  • The Crisis Prevention Institute’s Nonviolent Crisis Intervention
  • Core A and B Living in the Community – Medication Administration

The online portion of the orientation program may be found here: Litmos. You will obtain a username and password upon hire.
