Local Companies Team Up to Improve Employee Morale and Engagement at Healthcare Organization

March 24, 2011
Grand Rapids, MI – With the high demands put on healthcare employees, maintaining a positive work culture is essential. Baudville, the leading provider in day-to-day recognition and award solutions for the workplace, understands the complexities of creating a work culture where employee morale and engagement thrive.
Baudville recently partnered with Grand Rapids-based Leisure Living Management, which provides high quality senior lifestyle services throughout the state of Michigan, to improve the culture at an assisted living facility in St. Johns, Michigan.
“Grace Haven Assisted Living in St. Johns was struggling with low morale and poor attitudes from employees,” explains Lonna Blair, Human Resource Director for Leisure Living Management. “The staff knew something had to change, but they didn’t know what actions to take.”
Baudville partnered with Leisure Living Management to implement a strategic employee recognition program at Grace Haven. Working with management and staff, Baudville identified key areas for improvement and implemented a recognition program targeted to reinforce desired behaviors and achieve organizational goals.
“The results have been remarkable,” said Blair. “Grace Haven has a new sense of teamwork and collaboration and morale has drastically improved.”
Baudville and Leisure Living will present the Grace Haven success story at a free lunch event on Thursday, March 31 at the Prince Conference Center at Calvin College. The presentation has been approved for general recertification credits from the Human Resource Certification Institute (HRCI). Managers of teams and Human Resource professionals are welcome to attend by registering online.
Following the presentation, attendees will be able to: Measure employee engagement Create strategic employee recognition programs Maintain momentum for a long-term recognition program
Baudville and Leisure Living will present the case study at the Recognition Professionals International Annual Conference in San Antonio, Texas this May. The Grace Haven success story will also be published on the Baudville.com in the Recognition Resource Center.
