What You Need to Know
Many industries have struggled during the COVID-19 pandemic: supply chain issues, the Great Resignation, and ongoing shifts between remote and on-site work have plagued the majority of companies in nearly every field. The healthcare industry has had it worse than most. There are simply not enough qualified medical professionals to meet the global need. Ironically, just as work-life balance is gaining broad acceptance as a critical element of mental health, it has become nearly impossible for anyone working in healthcare to attain.
With rampant burnout industry-wide, healthcare organizations are struggling with retention, and even the most well-intentioned are hard-pressed to improve the employee experiences they’re able to provide in the circumstances. A recent study conducted by isolved found that 36 percent of human resources leaders in the medical and healthcare fields believe that the employee experience their organizations offer is poor. Much of the burden has fallen to human resources contributors to mitigate as well as they can.
In this report, 3Sixty Insights documents the journey of an HR team as it reached the conclusion that it needed modern technology for human capital management. Partnering with AssetHR, the employer has turned to isolved. Supporting a healthcare non-profit already maintaining a retention rate well above the industry average, this team is confident that its decision will eliminate many inefficiencies and further improve retention and the employee experience.
