Anyone who has held a supervisory position is accustomed to completing annual employee evaluations. But is your team familiar with shelter assessments? While shelters make routine evaluations of their employees a priority, they often fail to perform structured evaluations of their building and operations.
As not-for-profit organizations, we should be concerned about the financial well-being and resources needed to operate our animal care and control organizations. Our mission and goals may not be to maximize shareholders’ wealth, but we’re responsible for improving the care and well-being of the animals in our shelters.
