Creating conditions that enhance job satisfaction: promoting and celebrating excellence

We need to create workplace conditions that promote and celebrate excellence not just compliance with minimum standards. Enhancing professional autonomy is key to this as this will enable practitioners to : have voice and authority to lead care at every level; demonstrate full value through delivering innovation, improvement and excellence in care; achieve enhanced respect for the professions contribution to healthcare; and realise enhanced professional pride. Examples of models that promote job satisfaction are described in HEE Narrowing the Gap (HEE 2016) and the ANCC Magnet nursing excellence framework.
