St Jude Hospital board engages with employees

The Board of Directors of St Jude Hospital has begun a series of engagement sessions with staff across the institution. The initiative is a broad policy of the Board of Directors of engagement and consultation with members of staff with the aim of engendering greater employee participation in the decision making process and also of boosting staff morale.

These sessions, with the Nursing, Management, Medical, Accounts, Facilities, and Administration Departments, allow the Board to meet and engage with as many employees as possible. They began on Thursday October 12, 2017 and are scheduled on a weekly basis culminating in mid-December, 2017.

Through those meetings, employees are provided with a forum to raise concerns, share ideas and offer possible solutions to some of the challenges facing their departments and the institution as a whole. The concerns raised by employees which are deemed to be serious and have merit are earmarked for action at Board and management levels.

The Board believes that such engagement and consultation meetings, in an open and free environment, will make the institution a better workplace for employees and contribute positively to overall patient care.

For its part, the Board is hoping, through those meetings, to gain a deeper understanding of some of the challenges facing the employees and St Jude Hospital to inform and guide its decisions as it seeks to make St Jude Hospital a true Healthcare Provider of Excellence.


  1. This seems quite reactionary given the rising tensions created by the Government over not continuing the work with St Jude. The staff have no idea what to expect and are rightfully pissed. No wonder they nearly went to strike last week.

  2. Meeting with Staf is nothing,if your HR department has no respect for staff and has no approach and attitude stinks. I hope staff signs a petition to get rid of them. Some of theses new managers are bad for St.Jude after all the heartace and physical issues staff has to endue at the stadium.
