The mission of the Human Resources Department at Leonard J. Chabert Medical Center is to create an atmosphere of knowledge and understanding of the varied human resources processes for staff and members of the community.
The vision of the Human Resources Department is to provide an array of clear, concise information that will enable staff and members of the community to have a better understanding of our services.
VALUES & GOALS
We are committed to establishing and maintaining positive working relationships with all hospital staff. We will provide services that support the hospital by promoting the concept that our employees are our most valuable resource and will be treated as such. Each person is a vital part of the hospital, and each person will be treated with equal respect.
We will provide a full range of centralized, comprehensive human resources management services for the staff of the hospital and to assist the hospital in attracting and retaining qualified employees.
We will advise, not direct; we will serve, not regulate; we will look for ways to say “yes.” Human Resources’ role is to help administration determine appropriate and permissible courses of action to achieve operational outcomes. We must share our knowledge and judgment, we must maintain appropriate internal audit and accountability mechanisms and satisfy hospital, LSU Health Care Services Division and Civil Service requirements, but do so in the least intrusive manner possible.
We are committed to working strategically with the hospital’s administration and staff in identifying and responding to its changing needs. The HR staff will explore all reasonable avenues to accommodate hospital needs in a manner that is open to new circumstances and that seeks continuous improvement of administrative processes. We must be prepared to recognize that sometimes existing policies or regulations simply did not envision current operational requirements when they were written and that the policies or regulations, themselves, need to be updated, modified, or revised to accommodate an evolving workplace.
We are a resource for the hospital that impacts and promotes equity and fair human relations throughout the organization. We are a customer-service organization responsive to the changing needs and expectations of the community it serves.
We affirm the following business principles:
- That employees and applicants should be treated with respect.
- That employees and applicants should be treated fairly.
- That employees and applicants should receive quality customer service.
- That the Human Resources staff will strive to maintain a high standard of performance and proficiency in providing services to employees and applicants.
