Tabitha Recognized for Employee Engagement
In June, Tabitha (Tabitha.org/Careers) announced that they received the 2018 Survey Solutions Workplace Transformation Award. This annual honor is given to hospitals and health care systems, nationwide, that have made a transformational change in employee engagement. Tabitha is one of just six to receive this year’s award.
This recognition is a result of Tabitha’s outstanding commitment to measuring, understanding, and improving the needs of their 1,000+-strong workforce serving in 28 counties throughout Nebraska. As Tabitha has transformed over the years to become the state’s leader in senior care services, so has its human resource department. Now called “Talent & Culture,” this team holds the ever-important responsibilities of recruitment and retention as well as overseeing investment in the growth and career paths of valuable team members.
In 2018, as part of employee engagement survey results, Tabitha introduced a new career-building initiative–the Workforce Development Program. This initiative encourages personal growth and development through continuing education and exploring new departments, roles, and skills. Tabitha also implemented an in-house CPR lab. The lab, which is equipped with voice activated traveling manikins for Tabitha’s regional offices, makes it easy and convenient for nurses and aides to keep up with certification requirements. Key industry trainings over topics such as sepsis, clinical documentation, and lymphedema have been offered to staff as well, ultimately providing optimized quality care to those served.
