From the Desk of Steve McMahan, President of Randstad Healthcare
“We’re seeing a relative roller-coaster in confidence levels among healthcare employees, reflective of the ever-changing nature of the healthcare environment today."
What deserves attention and concern for healthcare organizations across the country is the significant number of employees likely to seek new employment. As the leaders of these organizations are keenly aware, the ability to deliver optimal patient care and ensure patient satisfaction is largely influenced by consistent, quality staff at the right ratios.
It goes without saying that disengagement leads to turnover, something our healthcare organizations simply can’t afford. As healthcare executives and leaders seek ways to retain hard-to-find quality and specialized healthcare talent, boosting engagement and providing adequate support to healthcare staff are two great places to start.
A Closer Look at the Findings:
This survey was conducted online within the United States by Harris Poll on behalf of Randstad Healthcare from July 8-10, August 4-6 and September 9-11, 2014 among 3,144 adults ages 18 and older, of which 168 are employed in healthcare, which included physicians, nurses, healthcare administrators and other healthcare professionals. This online survey is not based on a probability sample and therefore no estimate of theoretical sampling error can be calculated.
