How to Serve Residents at the Holidays with a Single Bag

For one day, the team members at Newby Management turned into a food packing assembly line.  As holiday music plays, team members gather to serve residents. For some team members, like Kelly Horalek, a corporate office accountant, this is her favorite day of the year.

At the holidays especially, we notice the needs of people around us. At Newby Management, the team noticed that some residents were struggling to feed their families, something that becomes especially difficult around Christmas. That was when they started delivering holiday food bags to residents in their communities who needed an extra hand.

This year the corporate office team packed an astounding 1,500 pounds of nonperishable food. It’s the kind of food most people take for granted, like peanut butter and jelly or oatmeal. But for some families, those staple items will go a long way.service, serving christ, christian company,acts of service, property management, property management florida, florida property management company, mobile homes, manufactured homes

138 bags were given away in total. The bags are personally delivered by a corporate team member, so the residents aren’t just getting food, they are getting encouragement too. While some residents need food care packages, others just need a bit of holiday cheer. For residents who had a difficult year, the team delivered fresh poinsettias to their homes. It’s just a simple reminder that they are being thought about during the holidays.

Serving residents in your mobile home community during the holidays can take on many different forms. Whether you do something big or something small, know that it can go a long way to boosting morale in your community. Sometimes the best thing you can do is to meet people where they are and love them.

Merry Christmas, from everyone at Newby Management.

This One Idea Will Change The Way You Interact with Residents

resident relations, serving residents, manufactured home community, 55+ community Florida, property management, manufactured home property management, RV property ManagementEach morning, one of our community managers tours his community in a golf cart to see if any resident’s haven’t picked up their newspaper. Why does he do this? It’s a simple act that goes a long way in anticipating resident’s needs.

At Newby Management, this is one of our Three Steps of Service: “Anticipate and meet resident needs. Know your community family well enough to provide service even before they ask.” This means that you should pay extra attention to the sick elderly resident’s home. A paper left on the driveway for them could be a lot more serious than for other residents.

Getting to know your community is an essential part of being able to anticipate needs. For sick or elderly residents, a newspaper on the driveway could signal a need for help. For other residents, it could simply mean that they are out of town or on an early morning walk.

Anticipating needs comes in all shapes and sizes, from offering ice cream bars to residents at the pool to helping an elderly resident with home repairs. For instance, if resident’s love hanging out at the pool, but the furniture is old and rickety it might be time to consider purchasing new pool furniture. Also, we use the taller comfort pool furniture when possible. Waiting to make changes until residents have started complaining or have stopped coming to the pool entirely is too late.

Small acts of service can mean the difference between good customer service and great customer service. Finding new ways to serve residents should be exciting, and it’s the job of all team members to keep it that way.

Every team member should make it a priority to anticipate resident needs. Empower your team members to act on opportunities to go above and beyond for residents. This could mean stopping to help a resident locate a nearby service or walking with a resident to show them where the library is located.

If you host a weekly staff meeting, encourage your team members to share what they have done to meet resident’s needs. This will not only offer you an opportunity to praise them, but it will also give other team members good ideas. Be sure to encourage team members when they are engaging in excellent customer service.

At Newby Management, our team is constantly striving to serve our residents in new ways. We train our team members to take initiative, to anticipate resident needs and to create great communities. In fact, at a recent meeting we came up with tons of ways our community managers are already putting these theories into play.

How do your manufactured home communities anticipate resident needs?

Why a Christian Company Prays Every Morning

prayer, christian corporate company, property management company, corporate prayer

“Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.” Philippians 4:6

At Newby Management’s corporate office, the work day begins with prayer. At 8:30 everyone gathers together to bring prayer requests for themselves, loved ones, team members and the company. It’s a time for team members to lift each other up in prayer.

In doing this, the company has created a culture where team members feel confident in sharing their struggles. Rather than feeling alone in their problems, everyone knows they have a work family surrounding them, supporting them and caring for them.

Prayers aren’t just lifted up in the morning though. If team members in the corporate office or the field are experiencing something major, the team will stop what they are doing and meet together to pray. It isn’t uncommon to find the team gathered in the hall praying for someone.

This culture is about more than prayer. It’s about an entire company taking the time to put people first, it’s about feeling safe in the workplace, it’s about knowing that God is bigger than our problems. Whether it’s family trouble, illness or problems at work, our team members feel comfortable bringing them to the table.

When it’s something that a team member might not feel comfortable sharing at the time, they ask for unspoken prayers. These unspoken prayers are something we’ve all dealt with from time to time. They are the things we aren’t ready share or don’t know how to. When those come up we lift them up to God too. We know he hears even the prayers we aren’t ready to speak yet.

It’s not common to hear of a company that starts each day with prayer. At Newby Management it’s acts like this that make it such a great place to work. From prayer and bible studies at staff meetings to the corporate chaplain and bible program. It all contributes to a workplace that loves God and people.
