If you’re a leader at a health care organization, you’ll do everything in your power to ensure it stays well-equipped to care for patients. But what about employees? Why not apply that commitment to delivering the highest level of care to your own staff as well?
For many, the answers might be resources. For others, it might come down to the challenges of the industry – with regulatory uncertainty, new technology, rising operating costs and more. It’s a lot to balance.
- But taking a hard look at how you’re supporting employees is a worthy investment. Our 2017 Best Workplaces in Health Care, published with Fortune, is proof of that: Hospitals on our list had higher-than-average HCAHPS scores and lower voluntary turnover rates.
- These top workplaces are doing amazing things to ensure their staff is getting the help and care they need. In the end, that means better patient care and a stronger organization.
Here are a few bright ideas from the winning organizations – some might just be a good fit to implement at your own workplace.
