Michael C. Fina Releases New Healthcare Market Brief Addressing Reward and Incentive Initiatives During ASHHRA's 50th Annual Conference

CHICAGO – Sept. 29, 2014 – In conjunction with the American Society for Healthcare Human Resources Administration’s (ASHHRA) 50th Annual Conference in Chicago, Michael C. Fina, a leading provider of global employee recognition and incentive programs, today released a new healthcare-focused Market Brief, “Recognition Programs: The Best Prescription for Healthcare Organizations.”

The Market Brief outlines the benefits of achievement-based recognition and incentive initiatives, including the ways organizations can leverage these programs to increase engagement and create tangible effects on patient care.

According to the Michael C. Fina Market Brief, hospital managers are refocusing their recognition programs to drive employee engagement, reduce voluntary nursing staff turnover, and place more emphasis on performance metrics linked to the Affordable Care Act.

“Achievement-based reward and recognition programs are an effective and scalable solution for an industry where individual employee performance is tied to funding and administrator responsibilities are stretched thin,” said Jeffrey Fina, Chief Customer Officer of Michael C. Fina. “Because of this, hospitals and health networks are making reward and recognition programs a strategic imperative with heavy c-level involvement to boost employee engagement and HCAHPS performance.”
