Employee Retention Reflects Baptist Mission and Culture
We recently held celebrations for Baptist team members who commemorated their work anniversaries during the last quarter. We had team members who celebrated 40-, 50- and even 60-year anniversaries. That is amazing by today’s standards and a clear testament to the culture and mission of Baptist.
People don’t usually stay with an organization that long unless they have a good work environment or they believe in the work they’re doing. Fortunately, I believe Baptist offers both of those—a great mission and culture.
While I had no influence on the culture or focus of Baptist 60 years ago, I certainly hope my leadership has an impact now. I have been working with our human resources team for a number of years to implement a leadership initiative that encourages accountability, innovation and excellence. Eventually, these behaviors will influence how all team members work.
It is my desire to create a collaborative environment where people choose to stay because they feel appreciated, fulfilled and challenged by their work. I believe happy staff members who feel valued work better together and consistently provide better care and patient experiences.
