Employees who feel valued are 60% more likely to say they are motivated to do their very best for their employer 1
Whether it’s in healthcare recruitment or the healthcare industry itself, confidence and motivation are key factors for success. Individuals who lack self-belief and drive to perform are often disengaged from their role, and this can have a negative impact on the service they provide. As the reputations of healthcare providers and people recruiting for the industry are dependent on providing excellent care to service-users and clients, making sure that high-quality training takes place ensures the best possible service.
Investing in candidates and existing staff is a good way to boost confidence and increase motivation, which in turn will ensure service-users and clients receive the best possible care.
Candidates and employees
Whether a candidate is applying for a new role, or an employee is already in a role, the feeling that they are being invested in is a huge confidence boost. When healthcare recruiters and employers are actively taking steps to develop candidates and staff in order to improve their skill set, the individuals feel respected and believed in.
Offering training demonstrates a desire to pass responsibility. As a result, individuals will act more responsibly because trust has been placed in them. And, because they’ve completed the training, they’ll feel more confident in their own skills and believe in their ability to carry out the tasks required of them.
This confidence also leads to increased motivation to do the role. Regardless of how well-trained candidates and employees may be, a lack of motivation and self-belief will mean they aren’t performing to their full potential. However, if they have the confidence and skills to carry out their tasks, as well as the motivation and positive energy to succeed, they’ll perform infinitely better.
Clients and service-users
As we’ve discussed, confidence and motivation within candidates and employees in healthcare is important. However, the reason it’s important is because it’s so closely linked to the experience of service-users and clients. They need to have confidence in the people who are caring for or treating them, and the services they are being provided with. They need confidence that these people are well-trained, and that they will have the necessary skills should anything go wrong with their healthcare or treatment.
This knowledge will come only from candidates and staff who have gone through high-quality training. This means comprehensive, gold-standard training courses, authored by industry experts, with an emphasis on compliance and up-to-date qualifications. To ensure training meets these high standards, partner with an industry-leading e-learning provider. E-learning training materials are continuously updated in line with the latest legislation, so recruiters and employers can rest assured that training will be fully compliant, as well as convenient.
