WRX Launches National Labor Efficiency Quality Award
Date:9/9/2009

HUDSON, Fla., Sept. 9 /PRNewswire/ -- Workforce Prescriptions ("WRX") announced on Tuesday the launch of the Paradigm Award. The Paradigm Award is a national quality award, funded by a private endowment, developed to honor hospitals that have gone above and beyond in their efforts to foster efficient labor practices without resorting to workforce reductions or dramatic top-down mandates.

"It's not an easy thing to make the paradigm shift in understanding required to see that the number of staff or hours worked are NOT the primary culprits of labor dependency," states Charlie Dawson, President of Workforce Prescriptions. He goes on to say, "It took us 3 years of gathering over 1500 data points on hundreds of hospitals just to determine what the root causes of labor waste actually were. It is no wonder that many healthcare leaders believe that downsizing and wholesale program cutting are the best ways to attack labor expense."

Workforce Prescriptions, the award sponsor, defines itself with a single philosophy: While it may be quicker and easier to cut jobs or mandate program changes, the only long term sustainable way of reducing labor expense is to first identify the root causes of the waste . . . the broken & legacy processes, missed communications, mathematical difficulties of staff scheduling, outdated measurements & policies that fail to address expensive behaviors.

Dean Kristiniak, COO of Workforce Prescriptions comments, "The Paradigm Award is an extremely significant achievement! Based on initial benchmarking, only a very few select organizations are performing (in labor management) at a level that will qualify them for the award. Their successes in creating measurable improvements in labor efficiency without unduly burdening staff or requiring artificial accountability define them as organizations with exemplary leadership teams and cultures of care!" <
