Employment at St. Charles
St. Charles is the largest employer in central Oregon and we strive to provide a great place to work for our talented caregivers. The employment policies establish guidelines for caregivers surrounding St. Charles processes and procedures and it is critical that each caregiver understands his or her individual responsibility not only to adhere to these policies, but also to promote compliance with the policies across the organization.
Open door policy
St. Charles embraces an open door policy as an effective and timely means for all caregivers to seek solutions to work-related questions, concerns and problems. St. Charles supports informal and open communication. If a caregiver has a problem or concern with a coworker, he or she is encouraged to talk directly with the coworker, and if the issue remains unresolved, the caregiver is encouraged to go to his or her supervisor. A caregiver who encounters any work-related question, concern or problem is encouraged to discuss it with his or her supervisor. If this approach is not feasible or appropriate, the issue should be brought to the attention of the supervisor and Human Resources who will assist the caregiver with any questions or concerns. Every effort will be made to ensure confidentiality among all individuals involved in the process with exceptions governed by legal obligations or hospital necessity. St. Charles does not tolerate or allow any retaliation against a caregiver for contacting a supervisor or Human Resources to assist with this process.
