Improving Patient Satisfaction: Four Ways to Better Engage Your Healthcare Staff

When it comes to the healthcare industry, a variety of factors have a role to play in the overall quality of care provided. Perhaps the most important of these factors is the engagement level of employees. In fact, a recent Gallup study showed that the number one predictor of mortality variation was the nursing staff’s level of engagement. It beat out other key factors, such as nurse/patient ratio and percentage of overtime hours worked.

Communication Profoundly Impacts Employee Engagement

Communication plays a vital role in all aspects and all levels of business. The manner and frequency of how someone delivers a message directly determines how effective it will be. In a business setting, senior leadership delegates roles and responsibilities to management. Management then communicates processes, procedures, and expectations with their employees. This chain of communication also reaches outside the company walls to customers and vendors. Along with directions, feedback is a form of communication that is vital when creating a culture of engagement.

When we examine what it means to truly engage every employee, everything starts with communication and as the old adage goes, “Communication is key.” Leadership is tasked with making sure the values and vision of the organization are known by its employees. They are also responsible for making sure that employees who are engaged and in tune with company initiatives are recognized and rewarded for their efforts and leadership on a consistent basis.

The Importance of Recognizing Your Healthcare Employees

Why Communication is Vital in an Employee Recognition Program

Communication of Employee Recognition Programs

Many organizations have established recognition programs to reward their employees for accomplishing various established goals. These programs can promote safety, performance, employee wellness, or any goal the company feels vital to performance outcomes.

If a company is in need of an employee recognition solution, there is an entire industry of companies that design employee recognition programs to meet their needs. However, as with anything, communication about the program itself is the key pillar for success. This is true from conception to implementation, to the evaluation of the program. It is important to market the program internally before total implementation.

Creating Interest for an Employee Recognition Program

It is often a good practice to have a recognition committee that includes a reliable representation of the employee base.
