Case Study 2The article “Organizational Culture Can Help Reduce Burnout in Hospitals” from our text book, Organizational Behavior and Management (Ivancevich, Konopaske, and Matteson, 2014) gave an insider’s look as to how three hospitals operate while creating a positive culture for their employees. While a hospital by nature is a stressful environment with often fatal consequences due to error, Johns Hopkins Hospital, Armstrong County Memorial Hospital, and Akron General Medical Center were able to successfully cultivate positive organizational cultures by reinforcingvalues important to them and by intervening at key points to keep these desired values as a prominent aspect of the workforce. It is very important for new hires to understand the organizational culture of the workplace from the beginning. If I was to be in charge of socializing the newly hired nurses at a local hospital, I would first discuss the rules and standards of the hospital and then go on to discuss the goals and values that important to the organizational culture of the workplace.
