Record number of employees participate in Corporate Compliance & Ethics Week11/23/21 12:30:pm
Earlier this month, Rogers celebrated Corporate Compliance & Ethics Week, with a record number of employee engagement.
After participating in a virtual booth to test their knowledge, watching videos to meet the Compliance team, and reading daily emails each spotlighting a different topic, here’s what some employees from across the System had to say:
“They are here to help rather than judge.”
“The virtual booth was a really interesting and engaging vehicle for sharing the importance of the work the Compliance department does.”
“I didn’t realize how many resources there were on the intranet, specifically geared toward corporate compliance and ethics. It will be very helpful to have these resources to go back to and consult moving forward.”
“I liked the videos to be able to put a face to the name of the people in Compliance.”
To recognize employees for their participation, they had the chance to enter a drawing for a Rogers gift and up to 500 Daymaker points. Congratulations to Emily Drenovsky from West Allis and Chris Bastin from Oconomowoc for winning!
Additionally, the Regulatory team will bring Rogers swag to sites during upcoming mock visits.
“We want to thank everyone for their engagement in Corporate Compliance & Ethics Week,” says Maeve O’Neill, chief regulatory officer. “The goal of the week was to build awareness, recognition, and reinforcement of compliance and ethics.”
“It was great to see the level of engagement throughout the week,” adds Colleen Kelly, executive director of Corporate Compliance. “We had participation from 85% of our locations, which is remarkable.”
Such awareness gets employees thinking about compliance in their daily work, according to Maeve, and helps our Compliance teams be successful, such as with the upcoming Joint Commission survey.
Joint Commission mock surveys highlighted staff, leadership
To start preparing for the Joint Commission survey in August 2022, Rogers locations participated last month in full mock surveys of all our programs.
In partnership with consulting firm Barrins & Associates, the mock surveys revealed that Rogers excels in patient monitoring technology, service delivery, and data tracking. Areas of improvement include adherence to protocols for patient safety, COVID-19 best practices, and documentation improvements.
“Barrins was extremely impressed with Rogers leadership, our therapeutic environment, and staff,” Maeve says.
“Employees who participated [in the mock surveys] were very open to feedback and took immediate action to correct identified items,” adds Steve Hertig, executive director of Compliance.
Between now and the Joint Commission survey, the Regulatory team is meeting with department leaders to correct and address all areas identified for improvement.
“Everyone from corporate to direct care roles has an impact on our success by understanding the need for compliance and supporting our efforts,” Maeve says. “We are excited to partner with each level of care and department for continued success.”
