Employee engagement is good for both the employee as well as the organization; when employees are happy, they’re more productive, and the institution delivers higher levels of patient care while keeping overall costs down. As they say, it’s a win-win. Just 44% of healthcare workers are engaged (HBR) and engagement was the top variable for mortality rates (Forbes). What might be a good solution to boost engagement?
The crux of this issue is that employee engagement is 'over' defined. Search for the term on Google and you will get a myriad of definitions that lead to confusion about what you’re trying to solve and how to solve it. In this webinar, we will address the history of employee engagement, where the confusion lies, and implications for the clinical staff relevant to competency and patient outcomes. We will also propose some areas for immediate focus to get ahead of this issue.
In a similar format to Part 1 of this series, the webinar will address a strategic view of employee engagement, while attendees will receive an eBook describing some practical steps to increase overall employee engagement. Click here to access previous sessions:
