BecauseWeCareThis spring, more than 6,500 BWHers completed the hospital’s Employee Pulse Survey, providing helpful feedback to BWH leaders on a variety of important topics.

Human Resources and leadership throughout the organization are committed to taking next steps as part of an action plan to address survey responses. Employees are being identified to participate in focus groups on three key topics identified by the survey: recognition, career development and feedback.

“We are truly grateful for such an impressive response rate, which gave us the opportunity to hear the voices of our employees and understand what matters most to them,” said Julie Celano, vice president of Human Resources. “Conducting focus groups will allow us to focus on some key areas and get more in-depth feedback so that we can develop and implement effective programs in these areas.”

Focus groups are set to begin in September. Watch for more updates in BWH Bulletin this fall.
