Studer Group is committed to our mission, which is to make healthcare a better place for employees to work, physicians to practice, and patients to receive care. As an extension of this mission, we are delighted to provide access to a tool each month that is usually reserved for our partner organizations in order to share leading practices across the industry.
Visit this page often to see what tool we've unlocked. Tools are available for a limited time.
Employee forums are employee meetings led by senior leaders. These meetings should occur three to four times a year and are one of the most effective tactics for communicating important, consistent messages across the entire organization. In fact, research shows that employee forum attendance is directly correlated to employees’ attitudes about how well information is communicated by the organization’s leadership. For these meeting to be effective, there are many large and small details that need to be managed and executed in a timely manner.
The Employee Forum "To Do" Checklist provides a prioritized list of tasks starting with preparations that should be done four week in advance of the event.
*Login is required to view the tool, but it can be accessed by anyone registered on the Studer Group website.
A common mistake in goal setting is that, instead of outcomes, tactics such as projects or processes are used as goals. A typical example of this mistake in a clinical setting is listing “compliance with hand washing policy” as a goal. While handwashing compliance is something we strive to achieve, it is a tactic used to achieve the more effective goal of reducing infections.
This goal setting quiz is a group activity designed to help teams differentiate between goals and tactics and offers practice on writing SMART (Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant and Time-Bound) goals.
