Presented by: Kathy Tinios-Rose

Today, Dignity Health is the fifth largest healthcare provider in the nation. Soon, a new organization merging Dignity Health with Catholic Healthcare Initiatives (CHI) will be created employing more than 180,000 healthcare professionals. Kathy Tinios-Rose has worked for Dignity Health for more than six years and is co-leading the job description standardization project.

This presentation will cover how Dignity Health is standardizing roles system wide using a competency-based approach. Kathy will provide an overview of the process they created and a demonstration of the latest technology used to support this effort.

Kathy will also present examples of how Dignity Health is using competencies in major HR functions such as talent selection, training and development, and performance management. Lastly, an overview of our ongoing challenge with behavioral interviewing training will be presented along with our lessons learned, and some thoughts on how Dignity Health won the Best Place to Interview award for 2017 from the website GlassDoor.


For the past four years, Kathy has been co-leading Dignity Health’s job description standardization initiative, focusing on the roles of 63,000 employees across more than 400 care centers nationwide. Through this work, Dignity Health is linking mission-critical priorities with talent acquisition, performance management, and learning and development efforts.

Kathy has a passion for helping leaders find and retain purpose-driven talent who place a high priority on relationships, teamwork, and quality. She recently designed system-wide HR and leadership training on the Annual Performance Review and Behavioral Interviewing that helped Dignity Health win the Glass Door award for Best Place to Interview in 2017.

This year, Kathy presented at two international conferences including IBM Think in Las Vegas and Cornerstone Convergence in San Diego. Kathy has provided consultation services to many public agencies including CalPERS, Department of Consumer Affairs, SMUD, and the Placer County Water Agency. More recently, Kathy has consulted with Lurie Children’s Hospital, the Royal Bank of Scotland and Jaguar/Land Rover.
