The traditional method used to staff healthcare organizations is no longer working as the industry faces persistent labor shortages and record-high levels of employee burnout. Research increasingly shows employees expect flexibility and meaning at work, or they will leave. To respond, healthcare organizations must implement innovative staffing models and approaches that prioritize the evolving demands of the workforce. In this session, a panel of experts will share effective staffing models healthcare organizations can consider that provide greater flexibility for their workforce while at the same time improving overall engagement and saving costs.
