Corporate Renaissance Group (CRG), a global provider of innovative solutions that improve business performance and increase effectiveness, is pleased to announce that Palomar Pomerado Health (PPH), California’s largest Public Health System, has selected CRG emPerform™ as their employee performance management solution. After evaluating more than 50 vendors, PPH will rely on emPerform to reduce administrative costs, streamline employee development initiatives and improve evaluation consistency, competency creation, and organizational goal cascading.
PPH has been committed to industry-leading patient care for more than 60 years and has received recognition for their dedication to quality. PPH was the First Public Health District in California to Achieve Magnet® Recognition, was voted one of the ‘Top 100 Places to Work in Healthcare’, and received the Premier Award for Quality in 2008.
“PPH employees are at the front line of patient care”, said Mike Shea, Director of Compensation and Benefits for PPH. “Proper and effective management and development of staff is what reinforces our commitment to quality. Implementing the latest in performance management technology will not only reduce the time and money spent on administrative tasks, it will also automate and streamline our entire talent management process - ensuring that our front line is developed and retained”.
CRG emPerform will move performance management at PPH from a roughly 95% manual process to a nearly 100% automated process - greatly reducing the administrative burdens related to performance management and ensuring that performance appraisal forms remain consistent and updated. PPH’s past problems related to supervisors using old or outdated forms will be eliminated as correct evaluations can be automatically updated and assigned to each employee based on their department and position.
“The landscape of the Health Care industry has and will continue to change”, said Vijay Jog, President of CRG. “We are delighted that PPH has chosen emPerform as a powerful yet cost-effective solution for improving their employee performance management processes. In addition, the ability to effortlessly generate competency compliance reports that satisfy accreditation body requirements is an integrated feature of emPerform and is vital for PPH and other Health Care organizations to stay accredited and competitive in the industry”.
PPH will use emPerform to conduct employee appraisals and initiate development planning for more than 4,000 employees across five of its facilities with plans to extend emPerform into the newest facility opening in 2012.
