Abstract

The global nursing shortage has prompted health care systems to seek new strategies to attract and retain nurses. The growing evidence points to the shared governance model of management are as a possible strategy to improve productivity, nurse job satisfaction and nurse retention. There are different models of shared governance, but a clear relationship exists between nurse practice environment and higher retention rates. Research found long hours, and unsupportive practice environments contribute to high turnover rates. Here is a look at the evidence which promote the creation of a shared governance model for a positive practice environment and better retention rates.

Shared Governance and Nurse Retention
Introduction
Shared governance models are being promoted as a plan to decrease nurse turnover, but there are many variable elements to the Shared governance model. True shared governance characteristics are a practice environment that has a process by which nurses take an active participatory role in the decisions of the hospital nursing practice. Most shared governance models are associated with Magnet status hospitals, but more and more hospitals are adopting this style of management without the designation. This is a relatively new concept because nursing in hospitals was paternalistic in the early years and nursing was more of an occupation than a career. Nursing is now a profession and in the hospitals with shared governance it has a professional practice model. Porter O’Grady introduced the concept of “Shared Governance in the 1980’s and it was seen as a strategy to enable…...

The Decline of Shared Governance

...DECLINE OF SHARED GOVERNANCE | | SYLVIA COLE 4/16/2013 | The Decline of Shared Governance Shared governance is a commitment to freedom of ideas, the professionalization of faculty, and the importance of deliberative decision-making. It is the process of soliciting broad input from individuals affected by decisions. The compromise approach to shared governance is epitomized by comprehensive efforts supporting cooperation and collaboration without domination. The objective of shared governance is to discover agreeable purposes of interest that advance the objectives of the education. Shared governance has been a crucial part of higher education educations and stretches back for over 75 years. An ideal shared governance model is reciprocal in nature. It will recognize the contributions and requirements of all participants in a cluster consensus process. This process will enhance and nurture a partnership, empowerment and successful outcomes of educational policy and implementation decisions. Shared governance can build inclined strategies that connect positions of authority, share resources, and facilitate programs. Shared governance in higher education is on the decline.

Shared Values

...Business Policy Assignment: “Creating Shared Value” CITIBANK & HSBC 9/26/2013 D Siddhartha Reddy-014 PGDM-Finance Executive Summary How to reinvent capitalism and unleash a wave of innovation and growth by Michael Porter and Mark Kramer Shared Value is a new form of capitalism. The idea of shared value was initially explored by the authors in December 2006 HBR. Shared value is not social responsibility, philanthropy, or even sustainability, but a new way to achieve economic success. In the article Porter & Kramer criticize neoclassical thinking on the trade-off between societal needs and economic success, and the way the concept of ‘externalities’ have shaped corporate and policy strategy. Article says that corporations should aim at creating shared value rather than only profits; this would lead to innovation and redefining of the capitalism, which as it stands is at logger heads with the society and looks at CSR as a philanthropic act done to please others. Article also questions the current perspective of viewing maximization of economic value of firm and achieving social obligations as a tradeoff. Article says that companies do face several internal cost caused due to social harms created by the company’s activities which comes back to bite the economic value created by the companies. Shared value then has not to be looked at as ‘sharing’ value which is already created by companies with society; rather it is increasing the pie of value created by......

Retention

...Employee Retention, Engagement, and Careers Chapter 9 offers some good advice and tools for managing careers. We will discuss building effective communications through fair treatment programs and employee discipline. In addition we will discuss proper handling of dismissals and separations, including retirement. In recent years, many employees from the “baby boom” generation have taken early retirement. However, experts believe the next generation will have to work longer than they would wish in order to fund those who are retiring now.  The Social Security Administration has increased the age at which future generations will be eligible for benefits. Management will need to find ways to stimulate career interests of older employees to keep them motivated and productive. Firms also will need to find ways to ease labor shortages by attracting those to return who already have retired.  Let’s discuss these and other issues. Learning Objectives By the time we have finished this chapter you will be able to: 1. Describe a comprehensive approach to retaining employees. 2. Explain why employee engagement is important, and how to foster such engagement. 3. Discuss what employers and supervisors can do to support employees’ career development needs. 4.

...RETENTION:- Retention management is the latest and most pressing problem of the new Millennium. Each and every business in this economy has now become knowledge based. It has therefore become essential for the top management to preserve the dynamic repositories of learning, which are their employees. Staff retention in the current economic environment is a major challenge. The major focus for employees in hyperinflation environment is survival. If the organization cannot provide enough to enable the employee to survive, the employee is likely to look elsewhere for survival. However if organizations manage to identify causes of staff turnover that they can control, they should target those areas for change or making improvements. Retention: The Secret According to Apple Company • Treat Your Employees Well. Meaning pay them what they are worth. Provide them with benefits that are customized to their individual needs holding onto your best talent using all means necessary. And by all means necessary, mean conversations, empowerment, and development. Involve your employee in the process. Let them drive their own career, and when it’s time to leave, let them go. • Hire Free Agents. If an employee model isn’t successful, consider bringing on free agents and contract labor to fill gaps. Benefits are no longer an issue and hourly rates dictate the marketplace. Free agents make their own rules working on more of a project basis instead of as an employee and often times......

It Governance

...| 2011 | | Marcela AjaziProfessor WaasMIS 51014 March 2011 | [It Governance] | | Strategy is very critical to any form of organization; IT Governance is defined as the structuring and alignment of IT strategy with business strategy. The structuring also provides successful implementation and achievement of goals as well as measuring IT performance in an organization. IT Governance is important to an organization’s life cycle, especially in this tech savvy era. I think that in order for a company to continue to flourish and expand their success over time, information technology and business strategies should be aligned together in order to stay ahead of their competitors or at least stay on the same page as their competitor’s are to assure that company’s maturity. Additionally, because IT Governance is important, it should be detail orientated towards the size and the regulation of the organization. CIO.com states, “Organizations today are subject to many regulations governing data retention, confidential information, financial accountability and recovery from disasters (Schwartz, 2007).” These are the main drivers that would motivate an organization to implement IT Governance in their infrastructure. I agree with this statement because it is true in its entirety; organizations have so much information that needs to stay confidential from their competitors or to whomever it is not privy to and/or to ensure that a certain organization is within the guidelines of......

Retention and Mission

...of the organization, governance and other stakeholders, then put into statement form and communicated to the employees as a kind of compass. Where organizations have well-communicated and understood mission and vision statements, there is also better performance (Carpenter, Bauer, & Erdogan, 2009). The mission statement is the organization’s reason for being and usually includes the values of the organization. Values sum up the beliefs that they are invested in. The vision statement declares what the organization wants to become based on the mission. From the vision statement the business strategy is determined which helps to bring into focus those actions that will help accomplish desired outcomes (Carpenter et al.) If the organization’s leaders and governance also portray behaviors that support the mission it will aid in the employees morale and desire to be a part of the organization. This will then help in the retention or the staff. Studies have shown that when the leaders adhere to the mission and behave as such, employees feel more support and security (Schyve, M.D., 2009). Having a strong mission at your organization can help make it clear to employees what’s expected and what their options are if something isn’t right. “Lead by example and live your mission,” says Rakowski. (Barajas, 2014).And CEO Don MacPherson believes that where a company’s values are known and understood, there is more engagement which leads to greater employee retention("2013 TINYpulse......

We had a very organized family structure and my father’s position in our home could be likened to that of a manager while my mother occupied the position of co-manager and I and my siblings were the staff members. Everyone in my family had a say in the way in the family was run. I was the last child in the family however I was not less significant than my older siblings. We were all involved in making small and big decisions in the family. I recall one time my father had a job offer that was going to take him away from the state where we lived and he sought the opinion of everyone before relocating the whole family. I was 12 at the time of the move and my father was concerned about how we would cope in a new environment. On the contrary, we were all excited to move from the state where we had lived all the years because we wanted to move to a big city anyway. Collaboration between staff co-chairs and the area manager; there was great collaboration between my parents. I and my siblings watched them work hand in hand and carry us along.

...Employee Retention Executive Leadership BY: Michael D. Jackson Assistant Fire Chief Department of the Air Force Mercury NV An applied research paper submitted to the National Fire Academy as part of the Executive Fire Officer Program March 1999 2 ABSTRACT Over the last five years (1993-1998), twenty-one members of the Range Complex Fire Department (RCFD) have left for various reasons. The problem is that because of a reduced personnel budget the department has not been allowed to replace all of the members that have left. The ensuing reduction in staffing has resulted in a fire station closure and a reduction in customer service. Operationally this reduction has resulted in increased response times, reductions of vehicle staffing and increases in overtime. The purpose of this paper was to identify why personnel were leaving the department and to suggest ways to improve employee retention. Descriptive and evaluative research methods were utilized to answer the following research questions: 1. 2. 3. Why have members left the Range Complex Fire Department? In general, why do employees leave the fire organizations they work for? What does the upper management team of the RCFD believe are the reasons personnel are leaving the department? 4. What retention programs are used by other federal fire departments? To identify why employees were leaving the RCFD nine interviews were conducted with former employees that had left the department in the last five years. A......

Governance

...Best Practices: Nonprofit Corporate Governance One of the most significant and valuable developments of the post-Sarbanes-Oxley Act environment has been the emergence of governance “Best Practices” proposals designed to enhance and improve corporate responsibility and governance. These proposals have come from a wide variety of sources, ranging from self-regulatory agencies (e.g., NYSE, NASDAQ) and business groups (e.g., The Business Roundtable, The Conference Board, National Association of Corporate Directors) to professional associations (e.g., the American Bar Association) and major corporations (e.g., General Electric, WorldCom, TIAA/CREF). While most of these Best Practices proposals have been recommended for adoption by public companies, their relevance as an aspirational goal for nonprofit corporations and non-public companies is widely recognized. From these and other resources, we have developed the following set of guidelines as “food for thought” concerning governance “Best Practices” to assist nonprofit corporations in responding to the current “corporate responsibility” environment. To set the proper perspective, a few important caveats are in order. First, these are Best Practices guidelines, and do not in most instances, reflect current legal requirements. Instead, the guidelines reflect our perspective on evolving trends in nonprofit governance and law. In many circumstances, adoption of, and adherence to, “Best Practices” may reduce a nonprofit corporation’s...

The Japanese corporate governance system differs vastly from the US system. Discuss corporate governance issues that may arise under the Japanese keiretsu system from the perspective of a) financiers b) owners c) suppliers and d) employees. A Japanese keiretsu is effectively a system of cooperation among various stakeholders. From the Japanese point of view, corporate governance includes maximization of long-term corporate value for shareholders and accountability to all the stakeholders, particularly shareholders (Corporate Governance Committee of Japan 1997). This model appears more attractive than the Anglo-Saxon corporate governance model since it takes social benefits into account. However, it must be noticed that the workability of this model relies on a flawless functioning of the market economy, which is not always the case in Japan (ibid). The later paragraphs will discuss in detail the corporate governance issues related to the Japanese keiretsu system in relation with financiers, owners, suppliers and employees. a) Financiers As shown in Exhibit 8 – Ownership Structure of Major Japanese Automotive Assemblers (1989), banks in Japan usually hold a substantial portion of equity in borrowing companies.
