Who We Serve
Every day in America and around the globe, Health Workers — the true “Unsung Heroes,” – go above and beyond the call of duty, to make a positive impact on the health and lives of patients, families and communities.
“Unsung Heroes” — with clinical and non clinical titles — make huge contributions in health care delivery, social determinants of health, public health challenges, natural disaster relief efforts, research, education, and much more.
While a favorite few get a pat on the back every now and then, most get little or no recognition, and no where near the genuine respect they so richly deserve.
For far too long, countless “Unsung Heroes” continue to carry the heavy weight of job demands that are greater than the resources available to complete the job effectively.
“Unsung Heroes” dealing with the harmful affects of Burnout, have come and gone nameless, uncelebrated, unfamous and unknown. No longer.
The Health Workers Hall of Fame Association, is the nation’s first Hall of Fame tribute, that is solely dedicated to Extinguishing Burnout Syndrome (EBS), while ushering in a new era of national respect and recognition, to finally give credit where credit is due.
Giving credit where credit is due, means honoring Unsung Health Workers like YOU!
Extinguishing Burnout Syndrome and honoring YOU with world-class recognition and distinction, is our way taking on one of the biggest health threats to Health Workers, while ensuring your accomplishments and achievements no longer remain anonymous.
What Else Is In It For You?
The Highest Honor In The Land!
Why Health Workers Like You
Deserve World Class Recognition?
As a nation and as a society, people often forget how much care, guidance, and support you give, and the sacrifices you make to restore us all to good health. Not only in the United States, but all around the world.
Every day and across every social determinant of health setting, Health Workers somehow find the strength to persevere and endure. They do so, in spite of overwhelming obstacles including workplace hardships, hazards and systemic failures that are often hidden from public view.
In the face of immense burnout and challenges, you continue to provide care and support to the most vulnerable. Given all Health Workers go through — to risk their own health and well-being to deliver life-saving care to others, — the least we can do is honor your dignity and professionalism, as we advance and promote Extinguishing Burnout Syndrome.
The data and the research on Burnout Syndrome is in. We now know Burnout Syndrome spreads like a toxic odorless gas, that can kill without warning. We know Burnout Syndrome is a clear and present danger that can result in heart disease, gastrointestinal issues, other complications, even death.
We also now know, healthcare leadership failure in combating Burnout Syndrome, is still contributing to the spread of Burnout Syndrome industry wide. How? Because far too many health professionals are still suffering in silence in work environments that breeds Burnout Syndrome.
- Work environments where higher job demand and job resource imbalances exist on a regular basis: Leading to understaffing, overburdening workloads, unrealistic expectations, unhealthy outcomes in employee health and poor delivery in service.
- Work environments where the organizational climate set by workplace de-motivators and dysfunction maintains an atmosphere — where a lack of respect, recognition and appreciation are commonplace; — causing people in clinical and non-clinical job titles to feel invisible or undervalued — from having to constantly work in survival mode — under the pressure of managers and administrators who kill morale.
A Solution Idea Whose Time Has Come
Unfortunately, working in a dysfunctional environment overburdened by higher job demand and job resource imbalances, can make a good-natured Health Worker with the best of intentions, experience burnout and feel unappreciated.
According to Prodoscore HR metrics, 79% of people who leave their job, cite a lack of recognition and appreciation as their reason for leaving.
This high percentage number, is a reflection of a serious underlying problem, that begs for a solution idea whose time has come — that not only address Burnout, but the lack of recognition and appreciation Health Workers experience as well.
Victor Hugh said it best: “An idea before it’s time must wait, for no one is crazy enough to grasp it… at the moment.
And an idea who’s time has passed must hope, for a future in which it’ll be needed again.
But an idea whose time has come is a force. It changes the world. It alters reality. It’s unstoppable!”
So let it be known, a new gateway has opened up for Health Workers with clinical and non clinical titles.
Going forward, Health Workers like YOU will be able to receive the highest professional honor in the land; as a “Health Worker Hall of Famer.”
