Problem Employees have difficulties understanding senior management decisions. Senior management has difficulty explaining the reasons for decisions and strategic plans. Results in low trust and the perception that Loyola lacks open, honest communication.
Most Likely Causes A great deal of information is analyzed when management identifies strategic plans and makes decisions. It is difficult to share all the information because it is complex and lengthy. There is less time than in the past to take staff from work to share information. As a result, employees don’t understand how or why decisions are made.
Solution The decision was made to use interactive Learning Maps sharing information management uses to make decisions, including: Changes in current healthcare environment Recruitment and retention challenges Changes in consumer expectations Competition Financial challenges
Development Gained senior management support Identified an inter-disciplinary planning team Identified a vendor experienced in healthcare to help create the map Piloted the map with employees Made changes to the map based on employee and management feedback
Implementation 125 leaders participated in the Learning Map and recommended implementing it system wide. 42 facilitators were trained Over 350 sessions were held over 7 months covering all shifts and days of the week Over 3700 employees participated
Follow-up and Next Steps Communicated results through InSide the System, Employee Information Exchange and Leadership Roundtable Celebrated facilitator contributions Analyze and follow up the 1300 employee suggestions Compare 2004 Employee Opinion Survey results to 2001. Continue to seek creative ways to share complex information
