The Great Healthcare Resignation: Leveraging Employee Well-being as Part of the Solution
Tuesday, September 20, 2022
Stress, burnout, and workforce mental health needs have increased the numbers of caregivers leaving the bedside and the greater healthcare industry. And while pandemic-related stressors contributed to this attrition, they also put a spotlight on pre-existing issues. As the demand for health services grows, the supply of workers declines, creating an expanding gap. As healthcare organizations grapple with the staffing crisis, performance challenges, and cost of total population health, employee well-being is an especially critical component in retaining healthcare workers while attracting new talent.
