See our helpful infographic below on employee engagement stats and why they matter to your LTPAC organization.

Whether you work for a long-term post-acute care (LTPAC) organization that has two or 20,000 employees, there is a common thread that must run through every staff member in order for the organization to be successful: employee engagement. Employee engagement is the emotional connection an employee feels toward their organization.   

This is not a term to be used lightly. Real employee engagement is used to describe a process where everyone from the CEO and directors to managers and supervisors work toward creating a culture of engagement. In today’s world, leadership must recognize the powerful impact that engaged employees have on organizational outcomes. This applies to businesses, institutions—and yes, LTPAC organizations.If you are a leader in your LTPAC organization, ask yourself these questions:
  • Do you inspire a culture of engagement?
  • Do you genuinely care about your employees?
  • Does your workplace support a sense of belonging and promote trust and collaboration among co-workers?
  • Specifically, does this workplace have a structure and culture in place that empowers employees to share ideas, express concerns and provide input on improvement opportunities?
  • Are your organization’s values reflected in the day-to-day behavior of everyone—leadership and staff included?

If your answer to any one of these questions is not a resounding yes, then you have work to do. The challenge is to identify, create and maintain a greater sense of employee engagement throughout your organization. Yet, with challenge comes opportunity. For LTPAC organizations, significant opportunities abound. Some include:

  • Creating a sense of belonging, which promotes trust and collaboration among coworkers
  • Reducing employee turnover 
  • Assisting employees with gaining a clear line of sight to what matters most in your LTPAC organization
  • Creating an environment where managers show a genuine sense of caring for their employees

This year, I will be developing a blog series that focuses on employee engagement from the LTPAC leadership perspective. I encourage you to subscribe to our blog and keep an eye out for the next post in this series.
