The Cone Health System has been a reliable healthcare provider in the Triad for decades. In an effort to foster new nurses in the Cone Health system, human resources uses the Engage Greensboro app as the main component in a retention program called FOMO GSO (Fear of Missing Out Greensboro).
The five-week program is a collaboration between synerG Young Professionals and Cone Health and is tailored to the cohort which is comprised of young nurses, most of whom are new to Greensboro. Over the course of the program participants explore Greensboro’s best assets (community events, restaurants, outdoor activities and young professional programs) and track their journey through the Engage Greensboro app. The app creates a leaderboard which shows the challenges nurses participated in and the points they receive for those challenges. These challenges include everything from playing trivia at a local brewery to visiting public art installations to attending a Greensboro Swarm game. FOMO GSO also includes professional development challenges such as sharing a nursing tip with other participants. Prizes for most points are awarded halfway through and at the end of the program.
This program aids to engage, cultivate and retain young talent at Cone Health and establish lifelong connections to the Greensboro community.
