Topic: Staffing in a Troubled Economy
(April 21, 2009 at 12:00 noon CST)

Are you managing your ES department staff efficiently? With today's economy, the stakes are high. The web cast "Staffing for a Troubled Economy" will give you the tools to justify the staff needed to maintain a high-quality, patient-centered operation.

ASHES member, Robert Hodnik, presents an innovative task frequency analysis model to determine staffing needs. Participants will learn to utilize a quantitative model of productivity based upon fixed and variable tasks performed rather than traditional methods such as square footage.  This model can be a useful means of documenting, in an objective manner, the number of employees necessary to achieve departmental and institutional goals. Register today to participate in this valuable learning experience.
