Employee Engagement Study

An Employee Engagement Study empowers organizations to gather, understand, and act on employees’ reported levels of engagement. As a major component of the patient experience, employees can make or break a patient’s experience. Having employees that are fully engaged with their work can make all the difference. From guiding pre-survey communication to administering efficient surveys with high response rates, through helping organizations understand results and developing action plans, PRC prepares healthcare organizations to drive better performance by increasing employee engagement.

Our Employee Engagement Study uniquely situates our experts to not only tell you exactly where you stand with your current workforce, but also where you stand nationally, as we compare your organization to other healthcare organizations across the nation. These powerful insights are then blended with historical findings to prepare a personalized roadmap for your organization to take your employee engagement to the next level.

The NQAI (Nurse Quality Assessment Inventory) survey was developed to help nurse leaders retain engaged nurses by providing insightful suggestions and recommendations on adaptive nursing solutions that support nurses within their teams and nursing careers. The NQAI provides useful information on the nursing workforce that can be used to make important decisions, including improved engagement, retention, and burnout mitigation, as well as whether an organization is planning to apply to the Magnet Recognition Program®. NQAI provides leaders with solutions to create and maintaining an engaging work culture that buffers the effects of a high-stress job and supports its nurses.

The NQAI can be administrated as a standalone study or as an add-on to the PRC Employee Engagement Survey. In this scenario, those participants identified as Registered Nurses are asked an additional 25 questions on the survey pertaining to the seven dimensions.
