KaiNexus Gives People a Voice

I was recently at a conference and the microphone struck me… it looks an awful lot like our KaiNexus logo (or I see our logo too much and my eyes are playing tricks on me).

I mentioned this to our co-founder and CEO, Greg Jacobson (listen to our podcast), and said, without pause:

“That's because KaiNexus gives people a voice” in the workplace. Brilliantly said!

Generally speaking, healthcare organizations don't listen enough to their front-line staff. Effective Kaizen or suggestion systems… or even well-run Magnet unit-based councils can get people involved in improvement in ways we haven't seen enough of.
