Over the course of our 80-year history in the employee engagement and recognition industry, we have spoken with thousands of healthcare workers. From CEOs and HR Managers to doctors and nurses, there is one question we’ve heard more than any other — “How can we save as many lives as possible.” Our answer has always been the same – by creating a Culture of Engagement at your organization.
Too many healthcare organizations, and the U.S. workforce as a whole, suffer major challenges surrounding engagement. Sadly, many of them are simply unaware the problem even exists. As a result, the number of employees who admit to being disengaged rises year after year.
This is especially true in the healthcare industry, where 44% of employees currently report being disengaged at work. Luckily, this is a problem that can be fixed. Like anything worth doing right, it will take a lot of hard work and dedication, but that is something healthcare workers have in spades.
Through the use of our People Are Everything Total Engagement Platform, healthcare facilities are able to monitor and measure employee engagement using formal, informal, and day-to-day recognition.
Our People Are Everything Total Engagement Platform drives employee engagement through social media, peer-to-peer recognition, achievement badges, eCards, and point-based recognition. The platform allows for both organization-wide and department achievements. This means that healthcare facilities are now able to create a culture of recognition that integrates the organizational goals of the healthcare administrators to the janitorial staff and every team member in between.
C.A. Short Company develops Years of Service Awards and Total Recognition Platforms for some of the largest healthcare facilities across the country. Hospitals, assisted living communities, and clinics use the C.A. Short Company platform to engage their healthcare workers throughout the year.
