Iis mission is to improve the "economic and social well-being of Tennesseans." Membership includes over 1600 individuals and 160 nonprofit service agencies and associations.  This grant will allow the agency to develop and test the Spirit of Service/Compassionate Care curriculum and program model, and produce a packet for replication and evaluation over a variety of human service disciplines, in hopes of positively effecting the health, satisfaction, and competence of front-line service providers and supervisors who demonstrate and adopt compassionate customer care.   Employers will experience higher satisfaction/cooperation among employees, better communication between management and staff, improved retention rates among participants, and a higher regard from the public. Fifty percent or more of the participating nonprofit agencies will incorporate Spirit of Service/Compassionate Care as a component of new-employee training.
