Read the following case and reflect on how you would deal with the situation.
A research study was completed at a hospital in the UAE to help make reforms in the healthcare system. Researchers interviewed many employees. The results revealed more than half of the doctors and nurses, two-thirds of other administrative staff and over one-third of supporting staff were dissatisfied with their work.
Researchers tried to determine why so many employees were dissatisfied. The study respondents cited 3 main reasons: 1) low salaries and lack of rewards/recognition, 2) problems in the working environment such as poor communication and ineffective hospital management, and 3) inadequate facilities for performing expected tasks. A significant number of workers reported that they had considered resigning from the hospital because of these reasons.
As a HR consultant, the hospital management has asked for your help and you must quickly find a solution. Budgets are fixed for the current year. Therefore salary increases are not an option.
Write a 1-2 page report detailing your solution. Your solution should include discussion of the following:
- What motivational theories and practices would you apply to assist the hospital staff? Explain your answer.
- What programs would you implement to continue to motivate employees? Give details.
Include an introduction and conclusion to your assignment.
