The key to combatting staff turnover and improving performance in health and social care
Staff turnover is a consistent and persistent challenge for many health and social care organisations. High turnover leads to a cycle of heavier workloads, higher workplace stress, depressed employee morale, and lower performance levels that can be tough to break.
One key to breaking the cycle is to cultivate high levels of employee engagement from the outset of a staff member's employment. Healthcare organisations with higher levels of employee engagement demonstrate lower turnover rates and deliver a higher quality of care than those with lower levels.
