Good Work, Wellbeing And Changes In Performance Outcomes

About The Report

This report illustrates the effect of good people management with an analysis of the National Health Service.

The report found Trusts that made the most extensive use of good people management practices were over three times more likely to have the lowest levels of staff sickness absence and at least four times more likely to have the most satisfied patients.

They were also more than twice as likely to have staff with the highest levels of job satisfaction compared to NHS Trusts that made least use of these practices, and over three times more likely to have staff with the highest levels of engagement.

No link was found between people management practices and patient mortality.
