I recently read that the American Society for Healthcare Engineering (ASHE) has launched an Excellence in Facilities Management Award that honors an individual or team that demonstrates outstanding innovation and creativity to improve the health care physical environment. The ASHE award will highlight best practices in order to educate and inspire others, as well as recognize innovative efforts.
I’ve just finished going through comments from our Annual Compensation Survey and I will say that lack of appreciation and respect are enormous areas of concern for many of you. Based on that, have any of you found ways to build camaraderie or show appreciation to one another for a job well done? Have any managers implemented an appreciation or recognition program? I hope you’ll share your best practices that other departments can employ. Thanks!
