Healthcare organizations with a culture of employee recognition for their nurses and staff have better patient satisfaction and clinical outcomes. In a Gallup study of 200 hospitals, they found that the number one variable correlating to mortality was the engagement level of nurses. The level of nurse engagement – their satisfaction and happiness at work – can actually lead to saving lives. Further, in another study, it shows a strong correlation between employee engagement and reducing staff turnover and absenteeism.
