18 Simple Ways to Improve Your Employee Engagement in 2018

It’s a new year and the perfect time to start implementing new tactics to increase employee satisfaction and retention. Vicki Hess, author and Top 5 Healthcare Speaker, shares 18 simple things to do to improve employee engagement in your organization:

Why are Nurse Managers Working So Hard?

This past month, I conducted onsite mock appraiser visits with four re-designating ANCC Magnet Program™ hospitals. These facilities are among the best in the nation, and I was overcome by the excellent outcomes and innovations in care that were evident. I was also amazed at the extra work expected from unit-level nursing managers in these outstanding facilities.

Bringing Purpose to Patient Interactions through Sacred Encounters

Nobl combines evidence-based practices with intuitive technology to help hospitals document and ultimately hardwire their rounding processes. But, no software, even with great prompts and customizable screens, will make a difference if we are doing the wrong things, or we are doing the right “things” with the wrong intent.

The AONE Tradition

Attending the AONE annual meeting has become a tradition for me since 2007. The opportunity to network with other nursing leaders and colleagues and to attend presentations by nationally and internationally known speakers makes this one a priority for many. Having worked as a conference planner in my early days as a CNS, I respect the work it takes to orchestrate one of these events and create the seamless experience for the attendees.

Increasing Retention Amongst Millennial Nurses with Employee Rounding

As a new generation of nurses join the healthcare industry, we see that over a quarter (28.9%) of new nurses will leave their position within a year. According to the National Healthcare Retention and RN Staffing Report, 17.2% is the national average nurse turnover rate.

The Untapped Potential of the Electronic Health Record

A few months ago I wrote a blog post regarding the changing tides of healthcare, and the effect that those changes were having on our country’s nurses. Higher patient acuity, electronic health records (EHR), and budget cuts are all contributing to increased burnout amongst nurses, increased turnover, and less time nurses are able to spend actually caring for patients.

Nobl and the Advancement of Healthcare IT

We at Nobl are only a little excited that National Healthcare IT Week has arrived again, because, well, Healthcare IT is what we do best! Aligning ourselves with the many benefits of Healthcare IT outlined by HIMSS, we’ve created a list of ways Nobl's Hourly Rounding and Leader Rounding impact hospitals for the better.

 

Leading Caring Nurses with Powerful Influence

A lot has changed in the past 5 years. Pumpkin Spice Lattes have become a staple of autumn, Siri has become the friend we talk to most, IVs and other instruments have become computerized, and the requirements of nursing have increased dramatically—requiring your nurses to be equipped with higher levels of responsibility, accountability, and knowledge.

The Changing Tides of Healthcare and the Effect on Nurses
The very nature of nursing is one of caring, nurturing and being available for patients. However over the past few years, due to the changing tides of healthcare, ever-growing demands have resulted in scores of nurses suffering from burnout, unit turnover, and ultimately less time doing what they do best: caring for their patients.
