The Executive Director has begun an employee handbook based on the handbooks of similar organizations. Because other organizational priorities have come up, she doesn't have the capacity to be the primary author in order to complete it.
Georgians for a Healthy Future has always been a small organization with little need for formal HR practices but we anticipate growth in the next 12-36 months. Having documented, established HR processes and resources in place will make it easier to onboard future employees and retain current employees while treating all equitably.
Our mission is to build and mobilize a unified voice, vision, and leadership to achieve a healthy future for all Georgians. Our vision is of a day in which all Georgians have access to the quality, affordable health care they need to live healthy lives and contribute to the health of their communities.
Since our founding in 2008, Georgians for a Healthy Future has provided substantive health policy information to community leaders and organizations, individual consumers, and advocates throughout the state; conducted seminars to equip consumers with the tools to become strong advocates; successfully injected the consumer perspective into hundreds of health care stories in the media; and engaged with policymakers to spark policy change for a healthier Georgia.
Our approach includes:
1) Outreach, education & engagement with consumers and communities;
2) building and mobilizing coalitions;
3) strategic communications; and
4) public policy advocacy
