Over the past few weeks, we at C.A. Short Company have focused exclusively on the role employee engagement plays in the healthcare industry. And, that’s because there’s a very good reason to do so. When healthcare employees are engaged, diseases decrease, profits soar, and lives are saved.
We have covered mortality rates, hospital-acquired conditions, medical errors, nurse and physician burnout, turnover rates, and the list goes on and on. While employee engagement in the healthcare industry is an incredibly serious matter, we’ve decided to have a little fun today, while also testing how well you’ve been paying attention.

“To save lives.”
Over our 80-year history in the employee engagement industry, we’ve spoken with thousands of healthcare workers. From doctors and nurses to CEOs of the nation’s largest healthcare providers, we always like to ask, “Why did you enter healthcare?” The answer is almost always the same – to save lives!Read More >>

More than likely, it’s because they want to change the world by saving one life at a time. But, the truth is, these are not mutually exclusive ideas.Read More >>

“What’s the single greatest thing our company can do to improve?”
This is a question I’ve been asked hundreds of times as I travel around the country, speaking to good folks who are looking for ways to make their businesses better. Regardless of the person’s position, company, or even industry, my answer is always the same – you must create a Culture of Engagement!
Nowhere is this truer than in the healthcare industry. We’ve spent decades working with healthcare companies, and we’ve seen what happens when they adopt a Culture of Engagement. Although most providers see improvement in nearly all avenues of their business, this blog post is dedicated to just five key areas: safety, patient experience/satisfaction, turnover rates, mortality rates, and return on investment (ROI).
