Advancing Excellence and Hallmark Launch New Employee Recognition Program

dpace@aeltcc.org


On Friday, December 12, partners Advancing Excellence in Long-Term Care Collaborative and Hallmark Business Connections launched a new and cost-effective employee recognition program named You Make A Difference.

Designed to help stabilize the average annual nursing home turnover rate of 50%, this innovative resource will provide administrators and senior leaders a tool that’s fun to give and even more fun to receive. It’s been reported that only one-third of employees feel appreciated or engaged. Yet, studies show employee engagement is key to job performance and staff retention.

Furthermore, companies that score in the top 20% for building a recognition-rich culture achieve a 31% lower voluntary turnover rate and engagement scores rise. What’s more, the care of residents will be improved when the same staff attends to them day after day.

 With the You Make A Difference reward and recognition portal, nursing homes can:

 · Order greeting cards and certificates with sincere, thoughtful messages and inspiring visual designs. The certificates can be printed or emailed.

· Easily personalize the award to make the recognition more meaningful.

 · Include a monetary incentive when appropriate. Employees can then redeem the amount for gift cards from hundreds of major national retailers, restaurants, entertainment and travel providers.

Best practices and tips for acknowledging staff and celebrating milestones are also offered as part of the You Make A Difference campaign.

Let your staff know how much you appreciate their accomplishments. You can start now by clicking AELTCC.org
