More information on Work Life & Engagement benefits.

Highlight different departments each week. For example: Highlight nursing during nurses week or Highlight Pathology during National Medical Laboratory Professionals week.

I would like to see:
Nutrition, etc.

Highlight qualifications to work in that department and what their impact is to patient care, etc.

I think it would be great if Inside Hopkins included topics and stories from other hospitals in our system. The other hospitals within the Hopkins system are probably doing a lot of things as well in these exciting times to further medicine and people should hear about these discoveries.

Give us the progress report on surrounding community development, e.g. Expected dates on new buildings, cleaners, shoe shops, etc.
I think you have covered most topics that are very interesting.

HEy Fellow workers,

How 'bout some information that is relevant to Sibley? ? remember us? The articles are fascinating, and I love the Tuesday Trivia. Classes, seminars, and lectures are offered but only to to Hopkins folks or only in Baltimore. I inquired about having the retirement seminar that was offered in Baltimore come to Sibley and was told to contact Human Resources. Really, I have to do that.? Why isn't it automatically offered here if it is offered in Baltimore?

The same discrimination happens between Hopkins University employees and Hopkins Hospital employees. Though we work side-by-side (often performing exactly the same job functions), some benefits (like Wellness classes) are offered only to the Hospital employees. University employees are told they are not eligible. (Of course, there may be some benefit that is only available to University employees, but I don't know what that would be.)

It is true that JHU and JHH do not offer the same benefits package. Although the benefits are comparable, specific offerings do vary. JHU has a robust wellness program and employee engagement strategies offered through the Benefits and WorkLife offices.

JHU's wellness offerings can be found on the benefits website at http://benefits.jhu.edu/wellness/ .

The university's WorkLife offerings can be found at http://hopkinsworklife.org/worklife/ .

Please feel free to reach out to the university's Benefits Office if you have any questions. Contact information can be found here: http://benefits.jhu.edu/resources/benefitscontacts.cfm.

Sibley's retirement benefits are not the same as JHHS. Sibley offers a 401(k) with a match and a basic hospital contribution. Sibley does not offer a pension plan. JHHS offers a 403(b) employee only contribution and a pension plan.

Sibley currently has a Wells Fargo rep on site once a month who comes and speaks during orientation. She also sits downstairs by the cafeteria all day.

HR will begin quarterly 401k presentations (in both English and Spanish) in the back room of the cafeteria. They will be 15-20 minute presentations about retirement options and what else an EE can do within our plan.

There are also webinars on the Wells Fargo website. If you need/want any more information contact Timothy Souza in HR.

Also, for other Sibley activities, please read the bi-weekly e-Newsletter "TWAS" and digital signs in the cafeteria and main lobby.

I hope this helps.

Working in Human Resources, we can understand your frustrations and want all affiliates to feel welcome and able to obtain information and resources that pertain to them. The Johns Hopkins Hospital and Health System is considered to be a completely separate employer from Johns Hopkins University. For this reason, different benefits are offered between the two organizations.

Unfortunately, many of our affiliates offer different retirement plans and, therefore, information offered to JHH would not apply to Sibley, Suburban or HCGH for retirement. The retirement seminar that was mentioned was for the University from their retirement vendor and not offered to JHHS employees.

As Human Resources continues to centralize, we hope to have more information offered to all affiliates along with the same vendors and services.

Thank you for this valuable insight.
