I have to say that the hospital that I am working for at this time they are going through changes at this time with the fact that they just brought the Union in that are making changes as well as the hospital and a lot of people can not deal with this and they are jumping ship, but the problem with this is they are not up to the change as well as up to the new work load that is coming our way. 75 wordsFostering teamwork is creating a work culture that values collaboration.

Another way to show teamwork is to divide all of the assignments up and give each employee a portion to complete however until the entire assignment is completed no employees portion of the assignment will be considered done.

Changes are tough especially for someone who is use to a certain system. the incoming management has to show that the know what they are doing to keep the employees motivated. Also I feel that you have to get feedback from your employees you cant come in and change everything and not ask for feedback. 75 wordsEmployee involvement is a necessary and integral part of managing change. Managing change is not a one way street. Feedback from employees is a key element of the change management process. Analysis and corrective action based on this feedback provides a robust cycle for implementing change. Class, Can you think of some ways managers can gather, interrupt and share feedback with their employees? How does feedback promote a positive change environment?75 wordsI think that the best way to retain high performing, competent employees while going through a change is with communication and specific duties or assignments being given to those employees. There are always going to be those employees who are resistant to change and an organization cannot focus on them because they are unstable and may leave at any time. Those employees who are flexible, and show that they can handle the changes are the ones who will stay and be assets to the company.

Employee retention is one of the primary measures of the health of any organization. The quality of the supervision an employee receives is cited as being critical to employee retention. Class,What do you feel are frequent employee complaints regarding their supervisors, and how can supervisors improve their approach with employees? 75 wordsSome of the frequent complaints that I hear on my job are that supervisors are lazy, they dont know how to do the job that they are asking their employees to do, they dont listen to their employees or communicate with them, they micro manage their employees, they do not show empathy to their employees, and they are just mean. I am in a supervisory role and when I became a supervisor, I took all of those things that I have always heard and chose to do the opposite with my employees. I have a good team of people who like their jobs and we get along very well.
