Improving joy at work — electronic self-rostering


After realising the highest areas of turnover for nurses and midwives was the intensive care units, Royal Free London NHS Foundation Trust began a project to reduce turnover by improving joy at work.

After hearing from staff that offering flexibility and choice of shifts would improve their work-life balance, the trust introduced an electronic self-rostering system.

They provided support and training to the staff to help utilise the system to its fullest potential. The trust has seen a reduction in both vacancy and turnover rates since the introduction, alongside comments from staff expressing its benefit to their work-life balance.
