Four Solutions for Improving Experience
Throughout the Employee Lifecycle

Better employee engagement correlates with better outcomes in safety, technical quality, length of stay, and readmissions,1 but traditional engagement strategies have been unable to rise to the challenge.

In this white paper, “Rethinking Employee Engagement in Healthcare“, Amy Lafko, MSPT, MBA, outlines the four key strategic shifts that enable healthcare leaders to improve and enhance engagement throughout the entire employee lifecycle.

Readers will be able to:

  • Quantify the impact of strong employee engagement on their organization
  • Identify steps for building their employer brand to elevate the caliber of healthcare talent they're able to attract
  • Learn how to implement objective benchmarks into their hiring process and understand the benefits of doing so
  • Diagnose potential gaps in their onboarding process that might be impeding new hires' ability to connect with the mission, vision, and values of their organization
  • Implement a framework that enables them to drive consistent engagement among their staff and to measure the effectiveness of these efforts
