NHS Employers, 2016
This case study from Kettering General Hospitals shares their experiences of how they’ve improved their staff engagement levels through the implementation of a workforce development strategy. The strategy focuses on eight key objectives and is based on findings from the NHS Staff Survey and is aligned to the trust’s wider five year organisational strategy.
Staff turnover rates at Kettering were high, and the new director of human resources recognised that a programme of work was needed to help improve staff morale, engagement and the overall performance of staff across all the sites. The range of activities included the creation of the workforce development strategy and the CARE initiative.
