Casey McCollum, a VISTA with Denton Affordable Housing Corporation (DAHC), has spent the last few weeks updating the agency’s personnel policies. He has contacted other area non-profit agencies and reviewed their policies, which he found to be particularly helpful. In addition, Casey interviewed the current DAHC staff to gather input on policies; such as vacation time, benefits, and procedures for time-sheets. While this project is behind the scenes and does not require interaction with tenants, it is extremely important to have up-to-date policies for employees from a legal standpoint and from a workplace morale standpoint. Having clear policies and procedures for the staff gives them a peace of mind and confidence that translates into better performance and tenant care.
