Activating Your Healthcare Heroes: Creating Passionate, Experience-Driven Brand Ambassadors in the COVID Age


Although healthcare is a very human industry, many organizations don’t commit the effort to ensuring that employees are prepared to deliver the brand and experience in everything they do. The pressures of operating through COVID have only exacerbated this challenge–burned out, frustrated, and sometimes vilified employees aren’t getting the support, guidance, and inspiration they need to deliver what makes the organization’s healthcare experience unique.

In this webinar, you’ll hear how two organizations are powerfully engaging employees so they can confidently and compellingly live the brand in every single interaction. Join your colleagues to examine:

• The strategies that guided these unique programs
• The tactics used to bring people along on the journey
• The results achieved by turning healthcare heroes into powerful advocates for the brand and experience

Take home lessons for implementing a brand ambassador program in your own organization, including elements to deploy and “sell stories” for gaining leadership commitment and alignment.

Vaccines Are Here: Three Communication Imperatives for Healthcare Organizations

Jarrard Phillips Cate & Hancock

The moment has arrived. With worldwide hope focused on a COVID vaccine, two vaccines … Moderna and Pfizer … await emergency use authorization from the FDA. Indeed, doses of COVID vaccines will likely be distributed throughout the country within weeks.

Now, the communication challenges begin. For those in healthcare organizations, that means laying the groundwork with the media, the public, and employees regarding distrust, distribution, healthcare inequities, and logistical hurdles.

Laying that groundwork rests on three key communication imperatives:

• Getting the talk right internally
• Serving as the voice of authority in each community
• Preparing for the pitfalls

The Forum for Healthcare Strategists joins Jarrard Phillips Cate & Hancock in a conversation that will unpack each of these imperatives and provide clear actions that healthcare leaders can take today. Examine how to: help your employees feel comfortable receiving a vaccine, as well as to then advocate within their community; shape messages that will relieve anxiety while educating the public; prepare for media scrutiny; and respond to negative events like vaccine side effects (real and perceived).

Hear insights from your colleagues to help you connect the communication principles discussed with real-world scenarios.
