Four, 90 Minute Employee Engagement Videos
The last several years have seen a dramatic shift in the ethos of working in healthcare, especially for physicians, other caregivers and non-clinical hospital staff. This shift from highly engaged, loyal, and committed to caring for others has, in many places, been replaced with overly restrictive productivity metrics and a personal loss of autonomy. These dynamics have eroded the personal meaning, joy, pride and the purpose of being a caregiver or an ancillary service provider in today’s healthcare industry. This course will attempt to answer the question: How do healthcare leaders maximize sustainable employee engagement? And, this course will present a “tool kit” to rekindle personal and professional meaning for those working in the healthcare industry. Note: Because of the amazing effort of healthcare providers during the 2020 Pandemic, some examples of positive worker and organizational behavior during this crisis will be used as case examples.
Participants will learn:
1. To use personal and corporate values as the basis for Employee Engagement
2. To create a meaningful work corporate culture
3. To elevate employee behavior to purposeful performance
4. To learn what can go wrong
