Our team members are at the core of everything we do. While we celebrate the unique perspectives, experiences, and diversity of our team, there are certain standards by which all employees should abide.
Arkansas Children's requires a dress code that reflects a professional image that is neat, clean and fosters trust. By taking pride in our personal appearance, we establish our hospital as a place of safe and compassionate care for our patients and families. The Arkansas Children's dress code will grant accommodations to this policy for medical and religious requests.
Employees are expected to be neat and well-groomed during work hours and when representing the hospital after-hours. Torn, ragged hemlines for slacks, scrubs or uniform attire are not acceptable. Scrub bottoms should not drag the floor.
All team members must wear their badges with pride in an upright, readable position on the outermost layer of clothing (including lab coats or sweaters). Badges must be worn in the shoulder area or on lanyard. Some safety sensitive positions may restrict wearing a lanyard. The badge should not be worn attached to a belt or other piece of clothing at waist level. Team members' badge photos must be visible. Do not put stickers or other markings on badges.
Team members must keep their hair neat and clean and maintained in a style that does not interfere with job performance.
Arkansas Children's employees may have visible tattoos, as long as they follow certain criteria. Tattoos that are offensive to patients, family members, co-workers or others in the workplace based on characteristics of a sensitive nature or not legally protected must be covered.
Team members may wear jewelry if it doesn't interfere with their jobs.
To ensure the safety of our employees and patients, certain vaccinations and tests are required. Each year employees will be asked to complete a TB screening and receive an annual flu vaccination as a condition of employment.
New hires must demonstrate compliance with this policy before reporting to work. Exemption requests should be discussed with Occupational Health at the time the offer is extended.
Arkansas Children’s now uses The Work Number® to provide automated employment and income verifications for our employees.
The Work Number from Equifax is a fast and secure way to provide proof of employment or income—a necessary step in many of today’s life events including obtaining credit, financing a home or automobile, obtaining a housing lease or securing government benefits or services. The Work Number simplifies the verification process and accelerates decisions through an online system available to verifiers 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
