Human Capital

The people working at SJD Barcelona Children's Hospital are our most important resource. Following the above-cited values, some of the Institution's initiatives are meant for them.

  • Coaching Service: the Hospital has a service to help its professionals to meet their full potential and improve their leadership skills. The service also helps people with work-related problems and those who do high-stress, emotional work.
  • Training Plan: each year, professional development pathways are offered – areas for improvement in aspects related to users and working areas regarding values.
  • Incentive Policy: professional career and management contracts are two tools available to professionals to incentivise the setting and obtaining of objectives.
  • Recognition Policy: each year, we set aside a day to celebrate the work of professionals who have retired, where they are recognised publicly, as well as the loyalty of those who have worked 25 years at the hospital.
  • Ability to Innovate: for professionals who have innovative thoughts or the ability to generate ideas, there is a support service that helps them to put their ideas and projects into practice.
  • Social Support Service: the Human Resources Department advises professionals who have a social need in their family (disability, elderly, dependence, etc.)
  • Employees' Benefits: professionals enjoy benefits by having access to certain goods and services, whether provided by the Hospital (free orthodontics for the children of employees, etc.) or by partner companies.
  • Welcome for New Employees: new employees are welcomed with information about the Hospital and the Order.
  • Charity Programmes: there are various programmes organised by the Hospital or the Order that allow employees to show their charitable side.
  • Areas of Participation: periodically, employees can participate in the “life” of the Hospital, outside of the professional setting. The centre organises costume contests, nativity scenes at Christmas and other events.
  • Social Events Committee: the Hospital has several initiatives outside work, such as a theatre group, a choir, an indoor football team, a running team, a yoga group, etc. The “Activa’t” initiative leads the way in developing these proposals.
