Invest in your deserving employees at a higher level! Give your deserving unlicensed medical personnel the respect they merit and allow them to advance. Stop stifling the medical assistants that work so hard to keep Kaiser and TPMG a float, and realize that just because they are not licensed does not mean they are not gifted with ability. Realize that not ALL people can afford school or can not afford to take time off of work to go to school. All deserving employees deserve the respect to be considered and not looked upon like they are just another body to fill the chairs at the desks to perform the sometimes undesirable duties of running the clinic, while all the glory is given with admiration to the nurse and/or physician. It is time that the Medical Assistants who work hard for this company be recognized outside of the general "Nurses" appreciation, as they are not nurses, and given the honor and respect they so deserve. You may find in doing so happier, healthier, more mentally stable minded and happily willing medical assistance who will lend themselves as an important part of the collective efforts that Kaiser claims to have.
I believe getting employess to become not only coworkers and treat them as they wete our in house customers.
To hire better representatives in the Uuman Reaource Department, especially in Corona California member service department. The Senior HR Consultant at that facility is HORRIBLE.
Keep up the good work. your doing good Bless your heart

I tend not to give advice that is a strong word. I prefer suggestion to CEO or a question if entertained an intelligent mind. Actually this is more a Human Resources question? Kaiser Permanente utilizes job boards such as LinkedIn, Indeed, not to mention recruiters how would an applicant know if a position is filled before going through the whole process? "Job Availability" "Status"
I have been called in the past for positions by Recruiters for interview and the positions that have been filled,its a number game for Recruiters and job requisition I get it.
On the other hand when one is looking for a position the most important for employment demand is job availability and best fit for position and interest. Time pays a major in everyone's lives and it cost and effective to have the right information to begin any process especially seeking employment.
Are you maintaining your job boards?

Really listen to your teams and make yourselves more transparent to them. If there is a concern sit at the table with all individuals involved, not just leadership but the employees that get their fingers into that particular pot. Get their perspective and ask them their ressolution. Then follow up within a time frame with a reason resolution where both the employer and employee wins.

Kaiser is already doing all it can to improve patient care and patient relations. They should continue on this path.
