Company culture is a pretty big buzzword these days. In your healthcare company, hospital, or clinic, how can you create a positive company culture that will attract top talent and keep them happy and engaged on the job? Let’s take a closer look on what makes a great company culture and how you can work to improve yours.
The thing at the top of the list for so many workers today is work/life balance. People are no longer willing to work long hours without any respite that can negatively affect their home and family life. One of the best ways to address this is to provide a level of flexibility on the job. If you can offer different start and end times, you may be able to give your employees a chance to handle important household and family tasks that would otherwise cause stress.
Another important aspect of building a lasting and strong company culture is a sense of shared values. This will also inform your hiring decisions so you know that everyone will be interested in the company mission and actively working toward meeting your goals. What are your core values as a company? There are always the important aspects like quality patient care, but how can you go above and beyond?
Yes, you’re in business to generate money. You’re also in healthcare to provide care to patients. But there is another factor that is essential to all of these goals. You need to make sure your company is employee focused. Without their skills, experience, and dedication, you’re not able to meet any of your goals. Make sure you’re giving your team what they need to succeed.
Engagement and Growth
One of the things that your staff needs is a feeling that their contribution matters and that you want to take time to invest in their development. Along with work/life balance, employees suggest that career growth is the other essential aspect of working for a company. Provide avenues for advancement and training to help them learn more, which will be valuable for you as well as them.
