When disruptive behaviors go unaddressed in healthcare, bad things happen to patients and employees. At the HWI, we’re on a mission to create a world where bullying and incivility are immediately rejected and kindness, respect, and professionalism become the new norm.
Who We Serve
We work with healthcare organizations that understand that the way their employees treat each other SHOULD be just as important as the care they provide and are committed to doing something about it.
Want to do what’s necessary to improve the work environment, but don’t know how to start or what to do.
Wish their employees would just stop the shenanigans and do their jobs.
They come to us because they need help to swing the pendulum from where they are (bullying and incivility) to where they want to be (professional and nurturing).
What Keeps Our Clients Up at Night:
They worry that the new nurses they just hired will get eaten alive by the older ones.
They wish they could spend more of their time helping their employees grow, instead of constantly dealing with the “problem” employees.
They worry that their really great employees will get burned out and leave.
They’re afraid of failing as a leader.
Are you and your organization on the right path towards a healthy workforce?
We have an ethical responsibility to our public and employees to do better. We can help your frontline leaders tackle this epidemic and feel confident in their abilities to address disruptive behaviors. Through our custom programs, we will work with your leaders to:
Reduce incidents of bullying and incivility
Set behavioral expectations and hold employees accountable for professional conduct
When leaders are equipped with the skills and tools that they need their employees are more engaged, fulfilled, and better serve patients and each other. This results in high-performing teams with increased retention and improved patient outcomes.
We are passionate about this work because we understand it takes courage and skills to confront bad behavior in healthcare. We make it easy for you.
The Healthy Workforce Institute is a team of healthcare professionals led by Dr. Renee Thompson. Renee draws on her background as a nurse leader to share her message on creating a healthy workforce culture by eradicating workplace bullying and incivility.
