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.
Today’s Healthcare Workplace
As an industry that touches the lives of nearly everyone, healthcare is also the largest employer in the U.S., employing more than 20 million people according to 2018 U.S. census data. And although healthcare employment
typically evokes images of nurses and physicians in hospitals, healthcare employees are also administrators, technicians, food service workers and housekeeping staff. They can work in public and private health systems, private practices or other facilities.
Being on the frontlines of the pandemic has hit the healthcare sector particularly hard, with nearly 3,000 healthcare workers losing their lives to COVID-19 in 2020. Furthermore, no matter their location or position,
employees have seen a number of dramatic changes in how they perform their roles.
