    Changes in the HR department without cross training staff provide a disservice to other departments that rely on the HR and their structure.First impressions are vital from any perspective.

    I have been working at Alaska Native Tribal Health Consortium

    Pros

    Competitive paid time off. Decent hours.

    Cons

    Lack of ability to utilize paid time off. Difficult to get a promotion, because employment opportunities are given to people the hiring manager already knows, versus to someone qualified for the position.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be open with your employees. You have a recruitment team, utilize them appropriately for promotion's within ANTHC. Hiring of employees should be a much quicker process, waiting months for a response to an employment application is rediculous.

    I worked at Alaska Native Tribal Health Consortium

    Pros

    Great mission statement and great location. Most of the employees are very friendly and happy to be working for ANTHC.

    Cons

    They promised me a reclassification and adjustment in salary to entice me to accept the job, but after I arrived, I was reclassified and given less than 5% of the salary promised. They freely admitted to making the promise, but the recruiter did not obtain prior approval. So, I was left holding the bag. Get it in writing upfront.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure you are all on the same page. Very disjointed. Many people working on parallel paths that do not communicate.

    I worked at Alaska Native Tribal Health Consortium

    Pros

    I loved my job. I loved knowing I was making a difference and I loved working with and supporting staff. I was lucky to be under a manager who supported and encouraged me, and within a larger department where my skills were valued. Overall, it was a joy to come to work every day.

    Cons

    Senior leadership and hospital administration changed over, with the exception of only one member of administration, during the time I worked there. It wasn't a stable situation, and each new person brought major change, that didn't necessarily last. Communication was nil, staff morale was flatlined, and there wasn't a sense that the upper levels of management cared. This was a large contributing factor to my leaving the organization.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find a way to make employees feel valued, and preferably by finding out what they would find meaningful. Build trust back up. Make a plan as a team and stick to it long enough for employees to get their bearings. Market internally as well as externally. Build community within the organization. Show respect for the amazing, innovative work staff are doing. Don't ever say again that the hospital is an institution of last resort for patients who cannot afford healthcare elsewhere--this is insensitive and demeaning.
