The objective of The ProMind Experience is to promote health and personal wellbeing of nurses and frontline healthcare practitioners. Experience has shown that the best way nurses can achieve this goal is through the support of the workplace; the hospital. In “Building The Best Hospitals To Work For” we discussed that by supporting whole person wellness initiatives you create a strong and inclusive nursing labour market. This support provides every health practitioner with opportunities for a good quality of life.
Currently, Satori’s “gamified” 6-module digital program is mission-focused, which creates an experiential component within the community and platform. While this is a digital program, the mission, combined with the group coaching, make for powerful community engagement. Satori supports staff in their definition of “wellbeing”, and “personal development”. We help nurses to set goals and achieve them – in whatever area of life they feel they need support. Satori takes into account that people lead complex lives, and that no two people are the same in their approach to managing their mindset, personal growth, and behaviours. It is through this lens that makes The ProMind Experience the personal development and wellness program that will lead the next-generation of health care providers.
Promoting Work-Life Balance
Work-life balance can be a challenging endeavour — especially for frontline workers going through the pandemic. Burnout has already been a major global health concern among physicians, nurses, and other healthcare providers. The numbers are rising through the pandemic. Learn more about the importance of work-life balance, and its impact on wellbeing, plus tips for helping your frontline achieve better work-life balance at your organization in this post here.
Eighty percent of employees who work at companies with robust health and wellness programs feel cared for by their employers. Healthcare players who take a holistic approach to wellbeing within their organization will create disproportionate value in their workforce. Making experiential employee wellness a key retention strategy in your organization supports your health professionals at creating balance and manage their stressors more effectively.
Next-Generation Wellness Keeps Patients And Staff Safe
Satori believes that the best contribution to a safe and efficient healthcare system is to contribute to staff wellbeing. To continue to focus on creating proactive approaches to burnout prevention will lift clinical performance and job satisfaction. The COVID-19 pandemic has greatly impacted health care practitioners’ job satisfaction. With less downtime in between shifts, hospitals need to reconsider the challenge this poses on nurses health.
Hospitals are losing staff at a rapid rate. According to the 2021 NSI National Health Care Staffing & Retention Report, “it takes 3 months to recruit an experienced RN…and For every 20 travel RNs eliminated, a hospital can save, on average, $3,084,000”. By shifting their retention strategy, hospitals have the potential to decrease reliance on supplemental staffing.
Supporting your frontline’s personal growth develops their capacity to adapt to new situations, while building emotional intelligence. Employees who learn to shift their mindset, inside the flow of their workday, can become more agile and highly adaptable to new situations. A experiential program like The ProMind Experience engages the organization as a whole to counteract these pressures. Wellbeing programs are a workplace staple that offer healthy lifestyle choices. But it’s not enough to just focus on physical health, hospitals need to adapt a long-range sustainable system that takes into account all aspects of a person’s life. Next-generation wellness invests in their employees’ physical, emotional, mental and spiritual wellbeing. All components are crucial to patient and staff safety.
Create A Wellness Strategy For Your Hospital
According to the 2021 Nursing Retention report: The cost of turnover can have a profound impact on diminishing hospital margins and needs to be managed more efficiently. “According to the survey, the average cost of turnover for a bedside RN is $40,038 and ranges from $28,400 to $51,700 resulting in the average hospital losing between $3.6million – $6.5million/yr. Each percent change in RN turnover will cost/save the average hospital an additional $270,800/yr”(source: NSA National Healthcare Retention Report).
Deliberate organization-level interventions support staff in many areas of their life, not just in mental health. Multiple literature reviews recommend the availability of organizational-level interventions. These should be aimed at preventing mental health issues, or provide referral options to staff for concerns that emerge. Experiential training for medical professionals is a rising topic of discussion today. These programs are of great value in developing a pipeline of mindful future leaders. Experiential personal growth programs such as The ProMind Experience puts employees at the center of new systems and strategies for continued health and development in all areas of their lives.
