Improve how you recruit and retain employees for long term success

For healthcare organizations, the ability to recruit and retain workers is a major contributing factor to reducing costs and improving the bottom line. According to Bill McPherson, writing recently in McKnight’s Senior Living, hospital job growth was up 30% from 2014 to 2015. He also notes that the healthcare worker turnover rate is higher than average, coming in at 19.2% for 2015, up 1.5% from a year prior. McPherson points out that there are ways to mitigate the factors that can lead to higher turnover and/or to attract new, top talent to your organization. They include:

  • Customized employee assessments
  • Training and professional development
  • Hiring as employees with full benefits, not as contractors
  • Schedule flexibility
