Avoid Burnout and Fatigue with Better Communication
Jobs in early childcare can be very challenging and difficult on many different levels. This industry sector has a relatively high rate of turnover and a pervasive amount of burnout. Experts are not able to attribute this phenomenon to a single reason, but rather have found that a number of factors contribute to nursery care employee turnover. Probably the number one reason is that children can simply be emotionally and physically exhausting. One approach to mitigating this problem is to support more of a team mentality amongst staff members. To encourage better communication and camaraderie between teachers, administrators, staff, and volunteers, some organizations have introduced wireless paging systems into their framework. For example, JTECH’s StaffComm™ and its’ simple and immediate wireless communication is a great way to foster open communication between teachers. Let’s face it, when the ratio of children to adults is so drastically skewed, working in teams is an incredibly smart approach to managing the chaos.
Children have incredibly high levels of energy, excitement, and vigor, which can be overwhelming to a care giver with the responsibility of maintaining order over the multitude. The StaffComm micro-transmitter and its accompanying pagers equips staff members with the tools needed to respond more efficiently to the children’s needs and to the needs of fellow staff members. Whether to alert someone for assistance with a spill or cleanup, or to page someone for medical or security assistance, StaffComm brings your valuable employees together. One of the most prominent roots of burnout is the feeling of operating or managing a task all alone. Many times this feeling is overwhelming and stressful. StaffComm will remind your nursery staff that they are never alone, that a colleague is always only a page away, and that a team of professionals is there to support them. At a reasonable cost, StaffComm can bring peace of mind and efficiency to a situation typically devoid of both.
