Enterprise smartphones increase healthcare job satisfaction and retention
Staffing shortages are one of the biggest challenges in healthcare today. Hiring quality employees is difficult enough, but keeping them around can be even harder. It’s a huge problem because having a revolving door of staff means constantly training new employees and losing the connections and continuity that are so essential for a high-performing team.
One of the best ways to attract and retain healthcare employees is by providing top-of-the-line technology. Studies show that providing your staff with the latest technology not only makes them more efficient at caring for patients, it keeps them happier on the job. And an employee with higher job satisfaction is more likely to stick around for the long term.
“Take care of your employees and they will take care of your business. It’s as simple as that. Healthy, engaged employees are your top competitive advantage.”
– Richard Branson
Enterprise smartphones are an ideal technology for keeping your staff happy and engaged because they provide so many benefits. By combining calling capabilities with online access and the latest healthcare applications, they make it easy for your team members to:
- • Access important patient information
- • Monitor prescriptions
- • Check lab tests and imaging results
- • Keep in close touch with colleagues
- • Comply with HIPAA regulations
Another tool in your job-satisfaction toolkit
Salaries and benefits are important, but they’re not the only reason workers decide to look for new employment. The best healthcare employees seek out companies where they have access to the best technology. When you provide your staff with the tools to perform their jobs efficiently and provide premium patient care, everything improves – patient outcomes, job satisfaction, longevity and even safety.
