Human Resources Department
The Human Resources Department at Baptist Hospital East works as a team to provide service for the nearly 3,800 full-time and part-time staff employed at the St. Matthews campus plus satellite locations such as Baptist Hospital East Home Health Agency, Baptist East Diagnostic Center, Baptist Eastpoint, Baptist Medical Associates locations, Baptist Urgent Care and BaptistWorx.
Human Resources assists employees with career development, benefit programs, and work/life balance. Other key services provided by this team include handling Family Medical Leave Act requests, workers’ compensation matters, market comparisons on compensation and examining employee benefits.
Providing for the day-to-day needs of its employees is only one function of the Human Resource Department. The department also focuses on the future human resource needs of Baptist East. The team includes recruiters for nursing and allied health to cast the net wide to encourage others to join the Baptist East family.
An on-boarding program helps new employees feel at home right away, as they are shepherded through the orientation process by their supervisor and co-workers. When employed for 30 days, employees are asked to give their first impressions of Baptist East and offer suggestions for improvement.
A full-time retention and recruitment manager focuses on ways to improve employee satisfaction and helps plans such activities as the Hospital Week celebration, annual hospital picnic and employee service awards banquet.
The Human Resources team has been instrumental in launching initiatives to ensure that Baptist East can retain, develop and reward the current staff and attract highly skilled individuals.
The department is located on the hospital’s first floor. Hours 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays
