The Secret to Hiring and Retaining Case Workers During Unprecedented Times
Hiring and retaining healthcare workers was hard even before the COVID-19 pandemic. But, by the end of 2021, at least 20 percent of healthcare employees had quit their jobs because they felt burned out or demoralized. Up to 75 percent of them reported symptoms of mental health conditions like PTSD and depression.
Despite these trends, some healthcare organizations have successfully overcome in-service training challenges by adapting to the new normal. And, by working with Online Training Providers, healthcare organizations can effectively manage their caseloads instead of turning away cases due to staffing shortages.
Common Recruitment and In-Service Training Challenges
Recruitment and ongoing employee training can present challenges to HR professionals in healthcare. Some of the most common difficulties include:
- Lengthy hiring processes that can require up to six in-person meetings.
- Abundant paperwork that takes a lot of time for prospective hires to complete and HR to process.
- Competition from other jobs that pay similar wages (sometimes without the stress that comes from working in healthcare’s high-stakes, fast-paced environment).
- Language barriers that prevent employees from completing their training.
The unprecedented times of a pandemic have only heightened these and other concerns. But, healthcare organizations no longer need to turn away cases due to staffing shortages, because showd.me provides simple and effective solutions for hiring, developing, and retaining employees while staying fully compliant.
