St. Luke’s Hospital Adjusts Offers for Nurses To Convince them to Stay in PH
ST. LUKE’S HOSPITAL – St. Luke’s Medical Center is giving newly-hired nurses a signing cash bonus and several other benefits.
Many Filipinos undeniably prefer to work abroad because of the better compensations offered for several professions. They want to give their families a comfortable life and a brighter future so they endure the distance and the longing so they can earn more even in other countries apart from their loved ones.
Convincing the working Filipinos to stay in the Philippines is one of the biggest challenges to the labor department in the country. Many overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) are working abroad for several years now and they have even brought their families with them.
Recently, St. Luke’s Hospital in Bonifacio Global City (BGC) made an aggressive move to convince nurses to stay in the country. It offers a P10,000.00 signing cash bonus and several other benefits for the newly-hired nurses.
Based on a report on ABS-CBN News, in celebration of the Nurses Week, St. Luke’s Hospital held a job fair wherein newly hired nurses are entitled to a P10,000.00 signing cash bonus, free groceries, and free condotel lodging for six (6) months.
Furthermore, newly-hired nurses outside Metro Manila will be given a one-way plane ticket. The newly-hired nurses will also receive rubber shoes, bags, and shirts that they can use for work. Based on the report, nurses who are already working in St. Luke’s will also receive a gift basket containing steaks and wines, milk tea, and vouchers that they can use to purchase branded rubber shoes.
St. Luke’s Medical Center chief nurse Ma. Martina Geraldine Dimalibot expressed that the move is a response to the worldwide manpower concern. According to her, even private hospitals are facing a fast turnover of nurses amid the easing of the requirements in applying for work in other countries like the United Kingdom.
