Profitable quality management requires managers to take an active role at all levels. The quality development and review of the implemented measures must be coordinated and operated systematically to gain transparency and control knowledge. In 2011, the job of «Quality Supervisor at the School of Health Sciences» was created to strengthen quality management. In this way, it is possible to collaborate directly with quality managers on the management levels and with the Evaluation Unit.
In addition to business process management, activities for quality management at the School of Health Sciences also include:
- Friendly Work Space Certification: Friendly Work Space is the seal of quality for companies that have integrated Corporate Health Management (CHM) into their company strategy. It is aimed at companies that not only focus on individual behaviours but also optimise the corporate frameworks and pursue a systematic CHM
The Evaluation Unit evaluates the range of study programmes and continuing education and conducts a survey of graduates (pilot project ABNA, coordination with Nat-ABBE). The outcomes are used for quality assurance and communication at the School of Health Sciences. The concept of the Evaluation Unit is continuously adapted to demands and is oriented to the quality assurance requirements laid down in the Federal Act on Funding and Coordination of the Swiss Higher Education Sector and its provisions. The Evaluation Unit cooperates with the relevant departments at ZHAW.
The School of Health Sciences is the only school within ZHAW to run an Evaluation Unit.
Corporate Health Management (CHM) focuses on healthy employees in a healthy and efficient company. The Management of the School of Health Sciences has charged the CHM department with the preparation and implementation of CHM measures in the School of Health Sciences.
