What's Good for the Employee is Good for the Company... In the Long Run
By Dan Moore
I've made this statement for years. Easy to say, sometimes hard to practice. What exactly do I mean anyway? It means that I may need to put the needs of employees ahead of company initiative. For example, we are in a tremendous growth mode and actively recruiting great people. Yet, simultaneously, we just completed a resume training with the entire team; even more crazy, we encouraged them to visit Indeed.com and apply for other jobs - while we are trying to hire! The result: we encouraged a higher employee turnover rate. Team members moved on to be EMTs, social workers, Southwest Airlines gate agents, YMCA volunteers, and managers/supervisors for other healthcare companies.
Does that sound a bit unconventional? My goal has always been to make someone so promotable or so passionate that they pursue their own dreams… not just RBS's dreams. Of course, I always hope to promote them internally, but sometimes a position is not available here. If they can be more motivated or do better financially elsewhere, how could I stifle them? Sure, it stings and may force us to scramble in the short term. But in the long run, we know we can handle it. Our core processes and policies remain in place to ensure that our service level never falters. And those who remain at RBS often find that there are new opportunities available when their coworkers move on. It's a natural cycle that ensures that those who are passionate about our values and our cause will rise to the top.
Our values drive our structure and have produced phenomenal results. Our clients can rest assured that we have such a strong bench strength that even if their daily point of contact changes, the transition will be seamless for them, and for their patients. The core people have been here 5, 7, and 10 years. Our company is stronger by treating others as we want to be treated.
I would welcome your feedback if you ever worked with RBS. Where are you contributing now? I'd love to hear where life's journey has taken you. I appreciate your time and encourage you to look at things in the long run.
Wishing you all the best of health!
