Greg’s Weekly Update (July 13, 2018)

Happy Friday Coliseum Northside Team!


Congratulations to our Employee of the Month, Jay Glisson of the Emergency Department!  Jay was recognized for being an awesome nurse and a great colleague to his co-workers, who made a point to celebrate Jay’s great sense of humor.  Thank you, Jay, for all you do!

Coliseum Night Out at the Macon Bacon Game: I hope to see many of you at the Macon Bacon game on Friday the 13th.  Coliseum Northside has over 130 tickets sold for this event, and we will also join our friends from Coliseum Medical Centers – this is going to be a great time to enjoy some competitive baseball with family and friends!

4th of July Potluck:  Thank you to the many staff members who worked on the 4th of July holiday.  It was great to get to see all of you and enjoy a great meal together.  Thanks for all you do!


RN Referral Bonus:  Did you know that if you refer an RN for employment at CNH and they are hired that you get a $3,000 bonus This bonus applies for any staff member making the referral, not just RNs.  Tell your RN friends about us and encourage them to join our team!

EES Survey Poster 2018

Now that the results of the Employee Engagement survey are back, look for the opportunity to join a feedback session with your director within the next two weeks.  The goal will be to share the survey results, brainstorm ideas for improvement and focus on 2 or 3 survey items for action.  Please make every effort to participate.
