Leading a Successful Multigenerational Organization
In today’s complex healthcare environment, a multigenerational workforce presents unfamiliar terrain for healthcare leaders. As a result, conflicts may develop in healthcare organizations due to the generational differences in core values and work-related issues. Other factors include economic and political differences, size of each generation’s population, the transition of younger generations to leadership roles, and social influences of the generational periods. This combination of factors results in further conflict among healthcare employees. Healthcare executives must take proactive steps to create cohesion across generational segments.
Panelists will discuss the specific challenges healthcare leaders encounter with multigenerational organizations, assess how multigenerational conflicts affect organizational culture and patient care and identify the benefits of a multigenerational workforce.
Listening to Employers: How Health Systems Can Support Population Health Management
The continued pressure to manage healthcare costs and maximize workforce productivity has caused employers to broaden their participation in population health management for their employees. Managing the health of a defined population requires attention to issues of access, cost, and quality. In addition to traditional work injury prevention and management programs, employers are expanding the services offered to employees to include health promotion, health behavior change, primary care, and other allied health services. Employers may contract with health plans, with niche healthcare providers or with local health systems to design and offer health services that meet the needs of employees while achieving the goals of the employer.
Panelists will discuss the needs of employers in managing workforce health and wellness, how healthcare organizations can partner with and support employers in population health management and successes and lessons learned from their experiences.
