At Ocean View, we value opportunities to grow. We offer staff development programs and encourage educational opportunities. Our compensation and benefits packages are competitive and we provide a work environment that enhances the lives of staff. We have a coworker and resident-driven approach to our Award of Excellence Program that is united with our values and critical success factors. This gives staff, residents and families the opportunity to recognize and reward employees for teamwork, creativity, excellent care, leadership and maximizing resources. As well, we are also privileged to have a long list of staff who receive Long Term Service Awards each year.
Ocean View promotes an environment that enables and supports staff in accomplishing their work. This includes education in the form of workshops, in-services and health resources. The Occupational Health and Safety Program offers assistance and information for all employees related to illness, injury, health or safety concerns. Our Employee Assistance Program offers voluntary, confidential counselling and advisory service. The purpose of the EAP is to help resolve problems that are affecting work (e.g. family, psychological, work related, addiction, illness, and life events).
