How Can Human Resources Impact Your Healthcare Business?
Human Resource Management (HRM) is essential to every business, but human resource management in healthcare keeps people alive. Hiring the right type of employee to fill current and future roles is an art and helps distinguish the employer as a desired place to work.
This process starts with the Human Resources (HR) leader working with senior leaders to discuss company goals, needs and strategies. Once this needs assessment happens, specific and new positions are created.
HR leaders will initially look internally with the hopes of encouraging employees to self-select and apply for the roles. This helps reduce external recruiting costs, but it also is a reflection of internal training and development efforts. A good company provides ongoing training and development opportunities for employees and encourages employees to hone their current skills and gain new ones with the hopes of filling future roles.
Various types of training include role plays, job shadowing, webinars and actual classroom sessions. Stretch assignments help develop new skills and can best be seen in team assignments on special projects, regarding specific job functions or to identify new and innovative processes for reaching desired goals. HRM requires managers and other employees to help with trainings and talent development.
HRM also creates and executes policies and procedures for everything from ethical employee behavior to safety measures. These guidelines are the reflection of a company’s mission and values, but reflect state and federal parameters as well. Without these institutions in place, companies run the risk of financial and reputational loss.
Policies and procedures include diversity and cultural goals specific to hiring and fair treatment of minority groups. A well-run organization embraces diversity in its stakeholders, including customers, suppliers, community and others. Well-known, successful companies have attributed their diversity efforts to higher profits and stronger stakeholder ties.
