Guide for Stewarding Resources

Stewarding Resources Responsibly

Health sector leaders who govern effectively: (1) define the scope and nature of resources required to implement their organizations’ strategic plans; (2) raise the needed resources from diverse sources; and (3) ensure that the resources are carefully used by managers, clinicians, and health workers.
 
Effective governance requires the careful stewardship of scarce resources (human, technological, and financial). To ensure good stewardship of a health sector organization’s resources, the governing body needs to master six imperatives:
  1. Wisely raise and use resources
  2. Practice ethical and moral integrity
  3. Build management capacity
  4. Measure performance
  5. Use information, evidence, and technology in governance
  6. Eradicate corruption
This guide presents a number of activities that may be implemented to achieve each of these six imperatives. A variety of tools and resources to support these activities are provided in the Appendix of the guide. In the guide, “you” should be interpreted as you the leader who governs—working with your governing body and the senior management team.

What is it?  The Employee Satisfaction Tool is brief questionnaire that was developed to establish a baseline data on employee satisfaction.

How can it be used?  The tool can be used to sample the level of job satisfaction among its staff.  It is self-administered and confidential. Managers are encouraged to use this questionnaire to establish baseline data prior to implementing improvements to the HRM system. The same questionnaire can be used approximately 1 year later to measure the impact of management improvements.
