Measured against increased productivity of your employees, the very modest amount for my services as a part-time independent contractor is truly something to consider. For your convenience I will come to your place of business for a brief meeting further explaining my services. Please continue reading to learn more, if it makes sense to you, please
send me an e-mail for a complementary appointment.
The Chaplain’s points of service
· A workplace employee Chaplain is in the office, factory, or field to listen and support the needs of employees through spiritual means adapted to the employee’s specific religious understanding.
· The workplace employee Chaplain does not attempt to proselytize or convert employees to any one faith or religion. Employees therefore need not feel apprehensive or defensive in speaking to or approaching their Chaplain.
· While workplace employee Chaplains are theologically trained ordained ministers and while employees may recognize this from a Corporate Chaplain’s business card, St John’s Management Group’s Chaplains are schooled to not present an authoritative, or overly pious image to employees, but instead, to encourage more of a trusted friend image that employees feel is approachable or someone that they can find easy to communicate with.
· Most workplace employee Chaplains work on a part-time basis. There are exceptions where there are a great number of employees thus requiring a full-time presence.
· While there are variations depending on employer and employee’s needs, generally speaking the workplace Chaplain makes the rounds of the office and/or factory or service personnel once daily. At least once daily the Chaplain moves through the employee’s working area greeting employees with a “Good morning” or “Good afternoon” depending on the time of day. As the Chaplain gets to know the names of employees, he or she will greet them by name. “Good morning Bob” or “Good morning Nancy,” etc.
· Employees understand that if they have something that’s troubling them and they need somebody’s understanding and confidentiality, all they have to do is ask as the Chaplain makes their daily rounds. The employees understand that such meetings with the Chaplain must take place on the employee’s own time, i.e., during a scheduled break, at lunchtime, or after their day’s work has concluded.
