Operating a hospital, health center, or a private medical practice takes a team of workers all moving in the same direction. And it takes more than just doctors and nurses to make this possible. An entire staff of employees including receptionists, office managers, food service workers, and countless others ensures that patients receive only the best care. However, this fast-paced, high-pressure environment can lead to high levels of attrition. How can you operate an optimized healthcare organization with less retention? Let’s find out:
Have a plan in place
You know the adage, those who fail to plan, plan to fail. Well, it’s true. Craft a complete employee plan that includes everything from onboarding to engagement to promotions.
Onboard with complete training
No shortcuts are allowed when training your healthcare employees. Failing to prepare your workers for the job they are expected to perform can lead to frustration and eventually walking out the door, for good.
Consider a mentor program
New employees that are mentored will feel more comfortable on the job. It doesn’t have to be long in duration, but ideally offering mentors between the first 30 to 90 days can help lead your hires to more successful careers. And less time you must peruse job boards.
Everyone needs work/life balance, so of course that includes healthcare workers. Allow your workers to tend to important (and not so important) non-work-related life issues. They’ll be grateful.
Engaged employees tend to be happier and less stressed. Ensure that you are including all your workers in organizational efforts. They impact your whole operation, make sure they know this with words and actions.
Retaining healthcare workers may be a challenge, but when you plan and follow up with the proper course of action, it’s possible. We know you can do it.
