Are your employees aware of your healthcare organization’s vision and top objectives? If your organization is like most hospitals and healthcare organizations, employees do not have any insight into your key objectives. While there’s a lot of talk in healthcare about the importance of setting and measuring goals, many hospital objectives don’t make it past the C-suite for myriad reasons, including lack of clarity, relevance, and follow-through.
Our recent white paper, Making Goals Matter: The Power of Cascading Goals in Healthcare, by Dorothy Duncan, Product Manager, HealthStream, featured the following guidelines for setting organizational goals.
With so much change and uncertainty occurring in healthcare, having a strong goal system enables organizations and their employees to connect in meaningful ways. It motivates individuals to create and participate in a strong culture of performance. Cascading goal systems ensure that when a goal leaves the executive suite, it is tied to people and processes all the way down the line. It is in this setting that staff begin to understand the difference their work makes outside of their daily domains. Organizations that become skilled at administering results-focused goal systems also gain a clearer vision of their strengths and weaknesses.
In addition to this list, the white paper includes:
