During last month’s Town Meeting, senior leaders announced the institution’s newly articulated guiding principles: United. Courageous. Inclusive. Honest. Curious. These behaviors are expected throughout the entire Brigham community.
Building on ongoing work to enhance the Brigham Experience, the guiding principles were inspired by areas of opportunity identified in the Brigham Experience: Culture, Diversity & Inclusion Assessment conducted in 2018.
In addition to serving as a blueprint for closing these gaps, the new guiding principles and competencies associated with them will be incorporated into Human Resources’ systems and processes, such as candidate selection and annual employee performance reviews.
Senior leaders and directors will also receive resources and guidance to ensure they have the necessary skills and tools to lead and develop the Brigham’s workforce according to the guiding principles.
In addition, the Office of Mediation, Coaching, Ombuds and Support Services (OMCOSS), which launched Jan. 6, offers resources to support building and sustaining trusting, respectful relationships in the workplace. The office’s services are available to all faculty, staff and trainees.
To help shape the next stage of culture transformation, all members of the Brigham community will be invited to participate in an Employee Engagement Survey in March.
