Critical Thinking: Organizational Change and Workforce Management

Critical Thinking: Organizational Change and Workforce Management (150 Points) Saudi Hospital System (SHS, a fictitious organization) has been facing many serious issues including leadership problems, staffing deficiencies, and financial hardship. Challenges include: • High staff turnover, which doubled to 20% in the past two years, is expected to rise. • SHS is in the process of implementing complex and expensive multi-year healthcare information systems such as Electronic Health Record and other critical-need clinical information systems. • SHS is facing significant competition from other local healthcare facilities. Last year, a new Chief Executive Officer (CEO) was hired. He identified the current organizational culture as apathetic, leaderless, and resistant to change. He also noted that the staff was under stress, resisting teamwork, accepting mediocrity, and compromising patient safety values and industry best practices. The CEO noted that critical human resources functions were broken and that financial performance was suffering. He attributed this to a variety of process issues as well as to the lack of focus on the core business of patient care. In response, he decided to implement the following strategies: • change the organizational culture • improve human resources and workforce practices and outcomes • ensure the organization’s solvency and financial viability in the long run • cut costs across the board, including implementing a labor-reduction strategy (salary and benefits), with an aggressive timeline to turn around the financial bottom line. Within a few months after these strategies were implemented, the SHS started to show less of a financial loss and seemed to stabilize financially. The morale of the staff, however, took a significant hit in the wrong direction. Staff turnover increased as the sense of job security decreased and as an increasing number of valued and critical staff in all areas left. Soon, SHS experienced an increase in patient complaints and lowered customer service, with signs of impact on clinical patient outcomes. Now the CEO wants to create a dynamic long-term organization and human resources strategic plan to put SHS on the right track. To formulate and implement this plan, the CEO hired a well-known consultant who is tasked with performing a system-wide organization and human resources assessment. Within the scope of this assessment is the development and formulation of a multilevel strategic program. This new program is to be implemented system-wide with the goal of helping SHS leaders to understand the link among finances, employee morale, human resources functions, and patient satisfaction. The end goal of this assessment is to create a culture of accountability; to shift the culture to one of services after two years; to attract, hire, and retain quality staff; and to implement best practices in workforce management. Assume that you are the consultant whom the CEO hired to do this assessment project. Your main task is to identify the key components involved in changing the organizational culture and to identify the steps needed to generate sustainable change. Here are the deliverables that the CEO wants to see from you: 1. Develop a comprehensive organization and human resources strategic plan. The plan has two major sections: Organization Development and Human Resources. The CEO expects you to create your plan using benchmarking and by integrating human resources and organization development best practices from other healthcare organizations, as well as from other industries. 2. The Organization Development section will address the following items: • Workplace communication • Motivation • Conflict Management. 3. The Human Resources section will address the following items: • Organizational and human resources systems that need to be in place to effect positive organizational outcomes • Performance management system • Process of training and development and the contribution to the organization’s bottom line   Share this:TwitterFacebook

Frequently asked questions
Is your service confidential?

When you place an order with our company, we ask you to provide us with such personal information as your name, phone number, and email address. We need this data to keep you updated on the important things related to your order or account.

Is there a possibility of plagiarism in my completed order?

We complete each paper from scratch and in order to make you feel safe regarding its authenticity, we check it for plagiarism before its delivery. To do that, we use our in-house software, which can find not only copy-pasted fragments but even paraphrased pieces of text. Unlike popular plagiarism detection systems that are used by most universities (e.g. Turnitin.com), we do not report to any public databases—therefore, such checking is safe.

We provide a plagiarism-free guarantee that ensures your paper is always checked for its uniqueness.

Is there a money-back guarantee? If yes, how can I receive a refund?

You can certainly get your money back in several cases. You can receive a full refund if you have paid for your order twice or if you have placed two identical orders. In case your paper was late or the quality of the paper does not correspond to your expectations, you will get compensation for these issues.

Do you keep a database of pre-written essays?

No, we do not have such a database. All papers you order from us are written from scratch. This means your paper is unique and has never been published before—neither will it be published after we deliver it to you.

 

When will my custom paper be done?

While placing an order with WritersHub, you can choose a period of time within which a paper should be delivered to you. The countdown until the specified deadline starts automatically from the moment we receive your payment in our system. For example, if you pay for your order at 6pm on Monday and choose a 3-day delivery option, you will receive your custom paper by 6pm on Thursday.

Remember that a writer needs a sufficient amount of time in order to conduct thorough research. Therefore, please choose the most suitable deadline when you place an order. Moreover, the later you need your paper to be delivered to you, the cheaper it will be. Thus, you will be able to save your money while your writer will have enough time to work on your order and ensure its quality.

Make sure you upload all the additional materials at the very beginning. If you fail to do that, the deadline for your order will be postponed as well.

I haven’t received my custom paper by the deadline. What should I do?

Let us know immediately about that. You can do it by writing a message on Facebook or email us. Our support manager will carefully examine your order and will assist you with it right away. The reasons for late delivery may vary from time to time. It can happen that you have entered a wrong email address or your spam filter does not allow you to receive emails from us. It is also possible that the writer is waiting for your reply and can not continue working without your assistance, or we are checking the work for plagiarism. Whatever the case may be, contact us if you have any problems with getting your order on time.
