Unison to take proposals to the board

During the last week of March, a small group of Senior managers from

HR, Ops, Clinical and EOC, met with us to look at addressing the

top 3 stressors staff raised in our #PBTH survey: Late finishes,

individual performance management (inc PDRs about performance

rather than development), sickness management.

#PBTH Campaign update

Starting on 23rd March, we have a week of meetings planned with a small group of Executives to look at addressing the top 3 issues staff raised in our #PBTH survey.

Staff told us these issues caused them high levels of stress, caused them to take time off sick, and made them consider leaving:

1. Late finishes.
2. Individual performance management (inc PDRs about performance rather than development).
3. Sickness management.

Almost a month ago we met with the Locality Directors (Rob Ashford, Matt Broad, Dave Fountain) to discuss the results from our #PBTH survey, and they promised to look at implementing something prior to the week of meetings to help ease late finishes, which we asked for as a gesture of good intent. This was also promised to staff in NTK on 26th February:

Although we're hopeful the week of meetings will bring in supportive measures for staff, it’s really disappointing the promised change to help ease late finishes has not materialised; the Put back the Heart campaign was started because of frustrations over lengthy timescales and broken promises from Senior management.

If you have access to Facebook, please follow the campaign by joining our Facebook group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/putbacktheheart & follow the media on our campaign blog: www.putbacktheheart.com

Kind regards,

Fraer
