One of the most important things we learned from the survey is our need to improve in the area of 'Career Development and Professional Growth'. This section deals with providing opportunities for personal growth and development, having the training you need to do your job well and obtaining a clear understanding of the career paths across MedStar Health.
In short, you are reminding us that our associates are our greatest resource and by investing in your growth, we are investing in the growth of the organization!

and to the rest of MedStar Health (column B)
We have started the conversation about these results and want to come up with avenues to effectively address them. This will take input from everyone. At several of the Town Hall meetings, I paused and asked questions as to what people would like to see. Earlier this week, I attended the monthly Scientific Center Administrators (SCA) meeting to get their input. We want to gather up ideas that span the system and others that are going to be more targeted to be applied within a specific department. As an example, someone suggested a shadowing program to learn more about other career opportunities across MHRI. Someone else suggested access to on-line training course.
We want to hear your suggestions. Please post a comment below or go to our suggestion box on starport at: http://starport4.medstar.net/MHRI/Communications/Pages/2-WayCommunication.aspx.
