Employee Engagement is the effort to understand and describe, both qualitatively and quantitatively, the nature of the relationship between an organization and its employees. It is the emotional investment an employee has to UK HealthCare and the foundation of exceptional work and patient centered care.

The mission of the employee engagement department is to provide the tools, resources and data to facilitate a culture where employees choose to engage.  Engagement affects retention, patient centered care, safety, organizational culture and an employee’s overall satisfaction.
