Stimulating, challenging, collegial, and collaborative. Where compassionate and comprehensive patient care is our foremost mission. Yet care of our employees is never second. Mount Sinai is a place where innovation is valued and teamwork is critical. A place where the Mount Sinai Health System badge serves as both a unique identifier and a distinguished symbol of allegiance, honor, and affiliation.
The Department of Human Resources (HR) supports the Mount Sinai Health System's commitment to excellence in education, research, and clinical care by attracting, developing, and retaining a high-performing and diverse workforce that takes pride in wearing the badge and the promise it holds for individual and collaborative creativity, engagement, advancement, and good health.
With the use of analytics and evidence-based practices, we are assessing and building technical, behavioral, and cultural competence during this period of transition. We recognize that historical predictors of workplace success may be significantly different than what will be needed in the future. We are, therefore, examining all processes, practices, and programming, and recalibrating services based on the outcomes of our workforce assessments.
The result of the full integration will enable us to create synergies and efficiencies among the Human Resources divisions on all campuses. Some of these efforts underway include the following:
Taleo: Mount Sinai’s Talent Selection and Onboarding Solution
Talent Acquisition & Retention, hiring managers, and candidates will all benefit from Taleo’s ease of use and robust functionality at all phases of the hiring process. Our candidates will experience a faster, easy-to-understand and mobile enabled application—while our newest team members will enjoy a paperless onboarding experience that helps them become part of the team faster than ever before. Plus, enhanced reporting will deliver data that we can all use to continually improve our ability to attract and retain talent.
There is no second opportunity to make a first impression. Consequently, our most significant early integration initiative was to develop and deliver a unified day-one orientation program for new employees of the Health System. At the combined “New Beginnings,” employees from each hospital come together under one roof to meet key Health System leadership, engage with their colleagues, and receive a consistent message about the mission, values, policies, and procedures of the Mount Sinai Health System—critical drivers for our future collective success.
New Beginnings for Leaders provides all newly hired and newly promoted managers and supervisors with strategic and relevant information as well as the tools that will enhance their skills and capabilities as leaders within the Mount Sinai Health System (MSHS).
Employee Life Cycle
We are in the process of reviewing our employees’ personal and professional experience throughout the Mount Sinai Health System to identify shared opportunities to enhance engagement, career opportunities, and retention of our top talent.
Continuing education is paramount to individual and group success. Understanding this, we are investigating new delivery modalities to optimize our virtual and physical spaces so we can efficiently and effectively deliver relevant and exciting educational content to all our employees across the Health System.
Remote Work and Geo-sourcing
Access to the talent cannot be constrained by physical space or geographic location. We are developing innovative solutions to manage the remote worker and source talent from outside the New York metropolitan area.
Future Integration for the Mount Sinai Department of Human Resources
As all of the Divisions of Human Resources move towards completing this combination, we will continue to integrate HR systems, processes, and programs and will be communicating updates on a regular basis.
