Action 4: Communicate Your Commitment to Professional Wellbeing

[to be added]

About the Action


Prioritize two-way communication with hospital staff about your wellbeing work. Transparent, ongoing communication between leadership and healthcare workers builds trust, ensures that your wellbeing work is known throughout your hospital, and values staff input.1

Key concept

Clear, consistent, and open communication with staff is an essential part of professional wellbeing. Communicating with your workforce generates buy-in, creates opportunities for staff to provide feedback, and prevents a disconnect across different departments in your organization.
