March 2022 – Executive Director Cheyenne Norem
I’m always charged to see the energy that my team brings to the community. The laughter and family-like feeling of being here make me excited to come to work. Thankfully, no matter what you throw at our team here at Rock Creek, we get through it and most likely are laughing by the end of the day. My team takes care of community residents well, making sure they are living life to the fullest. We know the residents on a very personal level, and I know that is very meaningful to both the employees and the residents.
The team really pulled together during a recent snowstorm. We had all of our employees helping to shovel and clear off cars. Other employees came in to assist with getting cars out of the parking lot. It ended up being a fun, unintentional get-together that truly helped families, residents, and other employees!
Our plans for Employee Appreciation Day are a secret, but I can say we plan to make sure the break room is overloaded with decorations and we’re giving each employee something special that they can wear at work to make them feel special. We thoroughly enjoy our employees and want to make sure they have fun coming to work! My team absolutely loves energy drinks, so we make sure to provide those at least once a month to let our staff know that we see them and we appreciate them. We also celebrate their birthdays, and regularly we make sure to verbally let them know that we appreciate all the hard work they are doing and that it doesn’t go unnoticed.
