We’re in the home stretch of sharing the hospital’s recently updated core values. The values follow an easy acronym, which should make sense for anyone in our hospital—I CARE. It stands for Integrity, Compassion, Advocacy, Resourcefulness and Excellence. So far we’ve gone over Integrity, Compassion, and Advocacy. Today we’ll talk about Resourcefulness.
Today, I’ll elaborate on our fourth value, Resourcefulness. We need to make sure we use all of our resources really wisely. Whether it is in our personal lives or our business enterprise, resources always have limits so it is important that we continually re-prioritize them. These resources include the skills and talents of our people as well as our financial resources. In the recent year, we have invested significantly into both of these areas.
How does resourcefulness play into your day to day, here at Reston Hospital Center or elsewhere? Do you have a great example of how better utilizing resources saved you time, money, or some other commodity—at work or at home? Has being more resourceful helped you be “greener”?
