    Minpunten

    Management is very lax. Left to lone work in remote places. More interested in getting donations then delivering services to people with dementia and their families. No HR support as branches run by volunteers who receive no training

    July 9, 2019HR Operations Manager

    Thank you for taking time to post a review of your experiences working with the Society. Whilst all of our volunteers undertake training specific to the role that they are carrying out and we don’t have branches, we do aim to ensure that people affected by dementia are at the ...

    Lack of any professionalism Amateur management practices 'Face fits' you stand a better chance of getting that job - nothing new here! Waste resources

    Minpunten

    A lying environment from the CEO to HR and upper management who continue to cover up lies and bulling

    Advies aan management

    I was offered a job with the organisation to start on the 29th ( contract start date ) of May however I was asked to start on the 22nd of may for training though I was then to learn the person before me walked out and management thought by saying I was having training under the disguise of being on front therefore not paying me saying I had said I would volunteer three days free , I did not agree to this when I complained...

    Pluspunten

    Wonderful volunteers and donors. It really is a wonderful cause.

    Minpunten

    There is a culture of bullying and harassment which has been ignored and covered up by HR and the CEO for years. Complaints about bullying by managers are brushed aside. It's easier for them to offer gagging orders to victims rather than addressing legitimate concerns and allegations. I was left in such a desperate state following the bullying I faced, that I nearly committed suicide.

    Advies aan management

    Jeremy Hughes, you are the CEO of Alzheimer's Society and responsible for the conduct of your managers. Ignoring allegations of bullying is detrimental to Alzheimer's Society's reputation. Former bullied staff members could become service users if they develop dementia. Lead by example and stop ignoring complaints raised within your organisation. You are doing a disservice for everyone living with dementia, their families...

    Ik heb voltijdgewerkt bij Alzheimer's Society voor meer dan 3 jaar

    Pluspunten

    - Ambitious strategy that really focussed on people with dementia - Ambitious fundraising teams always striving to bring about change and make a difference - lots of activities to get involved in as a Community fundraiser i.e. cupcake day, events, running, legacies - fundraising roles are advertised flexibly so this increases opportunities for progression - I found CEO very inspiring and really listened to employees on...

    Minpunten

    - Managers recruited because their face fits rather than on own merit - its who you know not what you know - Senior manager within my team was a bully and had various complaints from staff to HR and others in organisation but nothing actioned quickly enough and they weren't monitored or even observed - Quite a jump in targets every year which made some areas of this unachievable and demotivating

    Advies aan management

    - Don't ignore staff concerns - some staff have left due to feeling undervalued and under appreciated within the regional teams - a lot is put on regional teams as often they are the only fundraising staff based outside of head office so this can be tricky to manage - if its a 'one team ethos' make sure it works both ways. - introduce a proper development plan for staff as some managers are inexperienced in offering...
