In the midst of recession, this leading pediatric hospital made sure that no one would be laid off by cutting elsewhere. Employees got involved and they figured out a way where they could make cuts, such as using non-fitted instead of fitted gloves for simple procedures. That move alone has saved the hospital $25,000.

"By getting our employees involved, we have saved $25 million in expenses," says Linda Matzigkeit, chief administrative officer at Children's Healthcare of Atlanta. "Each department took charge, looking to see what they could cut."
