We all know the importance of employee engagement in the workforce. According to the McKinsey Global Institute, productivity improves by 20-25% in organizations with connected and engaged employees.
In health care, however, the impact can go far beyond productivity. Improving employee engagement can have a tangible impact on both quality of care as well financial performance.
- Cornerstone found that engaged/satisfied employees result in higher patient satisfaction – HCAHPS
- The National Database of Nursing Quality Indicators found that higher nurse engagement scores resulted in statistically lower patient mortality and complication indices
- A study by Gallup and Loma Linda University Medical Center determined that increases in nurse satisfaction led to an 87% decrease in infection rate over two years
- According to Gallup, “hospitals with the least engaged nurses pay more than $1.1 million annually in malpractice claims that those with the most engaged nurses.”
