PRLog - Nov. 21, 2012 - LONDON -- Over 1,400 healthcare professionals gathered at Grosvenor House Hotel in London last night to recognise and reward leading healthcare services across the country in the UK’s most prestigious awards evening.
HCL sponsored the ‘Workforce’
“York Teaching Hospital Foundation Trust is a worthy recipient of the Workforce award. Their identification of a system to lower the turnover of healthcare assistants through initial training and induction and has already seen a significant increase in retention.” Mr Burke said.
Previously, the Trust’s turnover of healthcare assistants was significantly higher that the trust average and more than half of those leaving the role had less than a year’s service. Following the Trust’s recruitment overhaul, just six per cent of healthcare assistants recruited under the scheme have left, and only 34 per cent of these had less than a year’s service.
“York Teaching Hospital Foundation Trust’s submission is an example of the importance of innovative workforce practice in the current healthcare industry, and HCL is pleased to pay due credit to the people sharing best practice in this ever-evolving profession. As an organisation, we are committed to deliver the best standard of care in the most efficient way.” He said.
With no additional resources required to deliver the initiative, substantial savings have been recognised by the Trust, and judges praised a “progressive approach” to recruitment and selection on the night.
Congratulations once again to this year’s winners, finalists and all who submitted entries.
