promoting-optimism-in-the-workforce

Creating a welcoming workplace culture within your organization is crucial, but what about optimism? Optimism could be the key to increasing employee engagement and unlocking a new level of productivity for your company.

Research shows that optimistic employees are 103% more likely to love their job — and optimism is contagious.

Here are three ways human resource departments can promote optimism within their workforce.

A labor shortage in the healthcare industry, from front desk workers and medical technicians to doctors and nurses, means that healthcare organizations are fiercely competitive in this new talent acquisition environment.  Successful healthcare talent acquisition requires a strategic and comprehensive approach to ensure that the right employees are hired and retained.

Healthcare systems are still reeling from changes spurred by the pandemic, progression in healthcare technology, and evolving patient needs. But the healthcare industry isn’t immune to external trends in employment, especially when it comes to attracting and retaining talent, supporting employee well-being, and providing a fair workplace culture and practices.

Everyone experiences a difficult day or even week on the job. When an employee develops burnout, however, they can experience chronic stress and exhaustion.

Inclusive Leadership in Healthcare

Healthcare providers looking to promote equity in healthcare outcomes and reduce cultural healthcare disparities might want to look inward, particularly at the diversity of their leadership teams.

Healthcare workforce shortages are affecting all aspects of patient care, and the shortages are only expected to get worse. The American Nurses Association recently called upon Health and Human Services Secretary Xavier Becerra to declare the ongoing nursing shortage to be a national crisis.

Diversity is easier to measure concretely through data collected from applicants and employees. As long as people are willing to disclose demographic information, you can monitor diversity.

Cultivating a Culture of Compliance and Ethics in a COVID-19 World

The COVID-19 pandemic has vividly illustrated the high-stakes complexity of healthcare ethics and compliance.
