Why human resource and education leaders choose SAW
Since 2002, more than 22,000 grads across over 500 US hospitals have been impacted by the School at Work experience.
Hospital leaders know that every associate impacts the patient experience. Entry-level employees are regularly in and out of patients’ rooms and have frequent interaction with patients and families. Essential workers have been lauded for loyalty and bravery during the pandemic and are often ethnically diverse.
School at Work (SAW) is a comprehensive education and career-planning system for a health system’s lowest-paid employees. Its goal is to help these individuals move from low wage jobs to middle-skill careers with family-sustaining wages. Hospitals that strive to be destination employers use SAW to develop the confidence, professional skills, loyalty and upward mobility of entry-level associates.
