The Health Stars Staff Engagement Fund has been created for Humber Staff to encourage team building, motivation and to help to create a feel good atmosphere across the Trust. ALL staff are urged to submit their wishes for things such as improved workplaces, group activities outside the working day and things that will help motivate and make teams feel good about themselves and the work they are undertaking at the Trust – which will ultimately have a long lasting positive impact on our patients and service users.
Some recent examples of the fund being put to good use has been yoga sessions for LD staff, a meal out for a full team following a motivational walking session and a team away day. These wishes have all been granted thanks to the Staff Engagement fund and have had lasting benefits including increased motivation, team working and pride. It has also highlighted the amazing work going on across the Trust and the amazing staff doing great things every day.
The Staff engagement fund has been credited with money raised following fundraising events by CEO Michele Moran including the longest day golf challenge and the more recent 12 hour on a treadmill.
Accessing the fund is just like any other fund zone, through the circle of wishes.
