    There is an infrastructure in place to support creativity and innovation.

    Departmental management is resistant to change and act punitively instead of in transformational leadership style.

    Although accreditation indicators reveal that there is a viable organizational infrastructure for strategic and operational excellence, without transformational mentorship, the unsupported followership will ill-equipped to meet the needs of the ever changing client dynamic.

    I worked at North York General Hospital

    Pros

    None that comes to mind.

    Cons

    I worked in the OR department as a unit secretary and experienced workplace bullying from colleagues and management. It was a bad decision on my part to accept this job considering I was hired on the spot the same day. I now realize there was a lot of turnover going on due to the systemic toxic work environment. It appears many of the OR staff have worked together for years creating an inbred culture, if you don't... behave and act like them then you're life is made a living hell. The union was pointless they did nothing to help my situation.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of OR management and hire new management from outside of North York General Hospital. The new management needs to be well verse, recognize the importance of and has experience implementing psychological health and safety initiatives for employees well-being. Hopefully this will at least break up the gossiping backstabbing cliques among management, nurses and unit secretaries.
