While working at Gundersen Health System there are many opportunities for advancement in most departments, though turn over isn't overly high, Gundersen is dedicated to making advancements in technology and patient care, so new positions are created. This is excellent news for the people who are hired for those positions, however, the way HR works is more than concerning. Many people who should have been chosen for positions are passed over because they aren't friends with the right people. People who are more qualified for positions, who have earned positions, are not hired for them if they don't' win popularity contests with the right group.
Gundersen Health System is a great place to receive healthcare, however, with management changes and a lost idea of what's important, that's changing. Patients can hear staff complaining about their job right outside their rooms, there aren't even people at desks to help you in the new hospital so patients and visitors have to wander around to find somebody when they need something, and there is a constant sense of chaos and unhappiness that is felt by the patients. Gundersen was always where I wanted to work when I was growing up and going to school, now it's not a place I wish to remain associated with.
You used to have to have compassion, work ethic, and education to at Gundersen Health - that is no more the atmosphere. One of their clinical managers only has a high school diploma, that used to be a position that was held by a person who not only worked hard at work, but also had the drive to earn an education. It's very odd that this organization chooses to hire employees with no education when most healthcare organizations are hiring candidates with more education, this is possibly one of the reasons their moral has slipped and employees expectations of themselves has dropped.
