Affinity Health Services Annual Retreat – Affinity Days 2018

Affinity Health Services and its affiliate communities aimed to take strong leap into 2018 with the annual Affinity Days Conference last month in State College at the Penn State Nittany Lion Inn. This two-day retreat involved a full agenda designed to be beneficial for each community represented at Affinity Days. The retreat had a motivating Olympics theme as it overlapped the final days of the 2018 Winter Olympics.
After a meet and greet Affinity Days was kicked off with a presentation from Dr. Tammy Manko on “Going the GRIT” and resilience. This inspiring presentation focused on maintaining a healthy and positive attitude each day and to be leaders in tackling and overcoming challenges. Following department focused roundtable discussions, Affinity Director of Human Resources, Mary Kate Bartley, presented a collaborative recruitment and retention plan designed to be an effective tool for each organization. Attendees then participated in an HR Boot Camp presented by Burns White Law Firm.

Day two of the Affinity Days conference is designed to recognize the achievements and successes of affiliate communities. Awards are presented to communities based on annual metrics quantified prior to the event. In addition to another round table session, Affinity’s Director of Marketing and Business Development, Kimberly Kelly-Clutter, educated and refreshed employees on the “WE CARE” policy implemented throughout all affiliate communities designed to welcome communication and empathy for all employees, residents, families and other stakeholders.
Affinity Days aims to be a time for all leaders and community representatives to convene, support, and learn from one another in best practices as well as recognize all achievements and successes. By providing attendees a chance to grow together, the goal is ultimately to lead to the possible care for residents and families of each community.
