  • Addressing Physician Burnout. Northwell Healthcreated Lavender Rooms where employees can take a moment away from work and decompress. They also created the Center for Traumatic Stress and Resiliency, an area staffed 24/7 with behavioral health specialists for whenever clinicians need extra support.
  • Solving Staffing. Northwell Health had previously created its own staffing agency to reduce the cost of contingent workers. During the pandemic, the organization also joined Evolve Health Alliance, a staff exchange program that could shift employees based on the shifting needs of health systems.
  • Fundamental Values. In a large organization, you are never going to make everyone happy. However, Joe points to being fair and consistent as fundamental leadership values, especially for HR leadership.
