The COVID-19 pandemic has touched everyone, especially individuals working in the healthcare sector. When infection rates soared in every state across the country, healthcare workers faced a lack of respiratory equipment, overcrowded ICUs and the risk of infection. Since then, many healthcare employees have struggled with mental health concerns and burnout, leading some to retire, leave their current employer or switch to a career outside of healthcare. Given the incredible pressure on employees in the healthcare workplace today, organizations need to take special action to retain them. There are many reasons for turnover—demanding caseloads, long hours, and shifting health and safety protocols—so you’ll need to take a creative approach in improving the employee experience and building a proactive and engaged workforce.
