The importance of welcoming new employees and its impact on professional motivation and satisfaction


This study intends to measure the impact that welcoming practices may have on the motivation and satisfaction of health care employees (nurses, administrative personnel and other health technicians). Based on a sample of 114 new professionals a structural model on the impact of welcoming practices on work motivation and satisfaction was estimated. The model shows that the welcome process has a weighting of 0.767 on motivation and, in turn, motivation has a weighting of 0.66 on employee satisfaction. Thus the results of this research show that the welcome process is very important in achieving the motivation and satisfaction of health care professionals.
