An exploration of the evidence on staff engagement and how this might be linked to patient outcomes and organisational results.

How does employee engagement impact patient outcomes such as patient satisfaction, patient mortality and infection rates? What are the implications for people management in the healthcare sector?

At this webinar, Christian van Stolk, Executive Vice President at RAND Europe will explore how staff engagement is linked with both individual outcomes – such as rates of absenteeism or presenteeism – and patient and organisational outcomes such as better quality of care and financial performance.
