Recommended Activities for Health Care HR Week
March 10 - 16, 2019

Below are events suggested by ASHHRA. Health care HR professionals can use them or create their own events. The events may be celebrated on the day that best aligns with the culture and operations of your organization.

Nominate a ASHHRA Member of the Day
One member will be featured each day on ASHHRA.org during Healthcare HR Week. When submitting a nomination, include the nominee’s name and a detailed description of their professional accomplishments. Nominations for 2018 are currently closed.
Know Your Health Care HR Professional Day
Hold a contest using a brief questionnaire to ask hospital employees around the organization to define the responsibilities of the HR department. The top three winners will receive a prize.
Hospital Wellness Day
HR staff could set up tables to talk about health and fitness, invite suppliers on healthy foods, exercise, stress management, etc.; offer incentive for participating. Find a community/local charity and set aside time to work together to volunteer.
Career Share Day
Invite the community to your organization for a career fair that includes career development activities such as resume writing, interviewing skills, networking strategies, seminars on getting hired, how to shine, turning a no into a yes, etc., or visit a school to talk about careers in health care HR.
Luncheon Celebration
Hold a luncheon in your organization to celebrate the work of the HR professional and have others in the organization meet the HR staff.
Cover-Me-for-Lunch Day
For an hour and a half, the HR non-managers and managers switch jobs for a day; the goal is to learn what the other does day to day and gain a greater appreciation for one another.
Unique HR Request Day
Discover the most unique requests you and your colleagues in HR have ever received (without revealing any confidential information, of course!), and discuss how you addressed the request.
Learn Together
Attend a webinar with your HR colleagues!
