District takes action after People Matter results It has been more than six months since more than 4000 NSLHD employees participated in the 2019 People Matter Engagement Survey (PMES) and the district has been busy taking action. “We want to make people’s experience working at NSLHD as good as it can be and we want people to feel included and engaged”.

NSLHD recorded one of the strongest engagement rates across the state’s health districts for the 2019 PMES. Since receiving the results of the survey, hospitals and services have been working hard to implement new and build upon existing initiatives based on staff feedback.

Director of People and Culture Paula Williscroft said the survey was all about taking action on what mattered to staff. “The PMES is the number one way we have to get some understanding of what our staff think, to hear their voice and we want them to know that we are listening,” she said.
