Got a question? Go Ahead and Ask; now employees can call or email
The "Go Ahead and Ask" online e-forum has added a telephone component to make it easier for employees to ask questions and share their thoughts with senior leaders.
YNHH first began its online "Employ-eforum" in 2002 so that employees would have easy, direct, electronic access to the hospital president and could raise issues or ask questions on the Intranet. In 2006, when Richard D'Aquila joined YNHH, he assumed responsibility for the site which was renamed "Go Ahead and Ask."
The e-forum is an active employee communication vehicle for employees who want to email D'Aquila with questions, comments and suggestions about how to make Yale-New Haven a better place to work. Employees are encouraged to identify themselves so they may receive a personalized response, or they may remain anonymous. Go Ahead and Ask is also a good tool for employees who have questions and comments about the integration of the two hospitals.
Now, a new anonymous telephone voicemail box has been added for employees who would like to communicate, but prefer to use the telephone instead of email. The voicemail box number is 688-6888.
