Hospital leaders and HR executives need to begin to define their future workforce needs, and develop and implement new workforce strategies that improve their ability to draw, keep and engage the talent they need.
Key workforce strategy and planning questions for hospitals:
- What skill and staffing gaps have to be closed in my hospital or system — especially in primary and preventive care — and in what manner?
- To what extent will rising competition in the labor market raise the ante in attracting and retaining critical-skill groups like physicians and IT?
- What strategies will best support reconfiguring the physician-hospital deal to improve clinical outcomes and increase efficient use of clinical resources?
- What types of performance management strategies do we need to effectively retain and develop key talent, particularly nurses?
