Employee Motivation & OB

BACKGROUND: Motivating employees is crucial for the success of any healthcare organization. Fostering a culture of respect, open communication and appreciation, as well as investing in employees through training, education and career development are strategies to help motivate employees, which can have a profound effect on the success of the organization. But one of the strongest motivators is to include employees in the decision-making processes. If an employee feels that can share their ideas, and be part of the organization’s operations, they will be engaged and productive. By investing in employee motivation, healthcare organizations can create a thriving workplace that benefits both employees and patients.
