Yale-New Haven employees WorkSMART

WorkSMART is the hospital's innovative, employee-driven program to cut waste and improve cost-effectiveness. In its first year, almost 700 employees contributed 1,200 ideas that have saved YNHH more than $700,000. The hospital recently held a first anniversary party to celebrate the employees who embraced WorkSMART and contributed ideas. Employees who submitted the top three ideas received $500 giftcards. The three winning ideas were:

  • Conduct office supply swaps where departments can trade/exchange office supplies
  • Discontinued printing of direct deposit pay stubs and benefits and compensation packages.
  • Enhance hospital recycling, especially for bottles and cans
