Professional Growth

Growing Together isn’t just about strengthening our organization as a whole. It’s also about creating new opportunities for you to learn and grow as an individual. By aligning our Performance Management and Recognition programs, we will remove barriers and foster more development and engagement throughout the network.

Wambi is a team member recognition system, fueled by the voices of all members of the Hackensack Meridian Health community. Unlike other recognition programs we’ve used in the past, Wambi allows team members to receive both peer-to-peer feedback, as well as feedback from patients and family members.

Additionally, the Wambi peer-to-peer recognition program, allows us to provide meaningful, personal recognition that touches all team members during major milestones including onboarding, work anniversaries, birthdays, life events and educational achievements.

In addition to Wambi, we are excited to introduce a new, fun and well, “snappy” way to recognize milestone service anniversaries.

Team members celebrating their milestone service anniversaries can select their service anniversary gift “in a snap” through our new gift vendor, Snappy. On the date of your milestone service anniversary, Snappy will send you a gift email from INFO@SNAPPYGIFTS.COM.  You will then be able to swipe across various gift options, select your gift, provide your address and receive the gift in less than a week.

Talent Management

You are the foundation of Hackensack Meridian Health. That’s why we’re strengthening our programs that will engage, recruit, retain and grow our talented team members at all levels.

Rooted in our shared culture and beliefs of being Creative, Courageous, Compassionate, and Collaborative, we’re looking at all the critical pieces, from how we attract new team members to developing strong processes and procedures that drive the high trust and high performance culture we all want.

We’ll have more on this vision and initiative in the coming months.

Performance Management

Setting expectations, and identifying potential areas of improvement and growth with an eye towards achieving them, is an important part of your career at Hackensack Meridian Health.  We’re in the process of aligning our Performance Management practices, forms, rating scales, and systems to have a network-wide approach. Some audiences may have already seen some changes, some may experience alignments this year, and eventually all team members will be able to participate in an aligned and consistent process, in accordance with their roles within the network.

We’ll look to update our processes to align with and leverage our cultural beliefs – Creativity, Courage, Compassion and Collaboration.  In doing so, it will better reflect who we are as a world-class provider and focus on your role in that success.

Be on the lookout for more to come! In the meantime, learn more here.
