A national survey conducted by The Workforce Institute at Kronos Incorporated finds that healthcare professionals are satisfied in their current roles, but - as the current job market favors job seekers - keeping staff happy requires work. While healthcare leaders continue to focus on the widening skills gap to attract both seasoned healthcare workers and new entrants into the workforce, they must also commit to retaining good nurses, doctors, and IT staff by providing the tools and resources that empower them to perform at their fullest potential - something only 41% feel in a position to do today.
To reveal what healthcare workers expect from an employer of choice, a study by The Workforce Institute and Regina Corso Consulting, "2020 Vision: Working in the Future of Healthcare," measures employee satisfaction among registered nurses and IT professionals in healthcare and compares that with the steps HR executives say they are taking to recruit and retain best-fit talent.
