Healthcare HR: Addressing the Ongoing Staffing Shortage

healthcare HR staffing shortage

Not Much Has Changed

When I first started recruiting in healthcare fifteen plus years ago, it seemed like all that was talked about was the nursing shortage. The conversation is ongoing and, sadly, hasn’t changed much. This Healthcare HR trending topic is addressed by many – the topic is addressed – but, not the issue.

Employee Engagement > Retention

For many years, we have been talking about how employer branding and employee engagement leads to the retention of quality talent.

“The talent shortage isn’t going to go away any time soon, but just like any other industry, healthcare can look to leverage partners to assist with systems and best practices to attract the kind of people you need..” – Dan White, President of Workforce Solutions at AMN Healthcare
