The Great Resignation
These past two years have been hard on the healthcare industry. And with each new wave of COVID infections and variants add additional strain to an already burnt-out group of medical professionals. Recently Fierce Health published an article talking about how the ”‘Great Resignation’ could be coming for healthcare as clinicians face mounting burnout and stress.”
The article then went on to say that 1 out of 5 physicians and 2 out of 5 nurses intend to leave their current practice in the next two years. If these clinicians follow through with their intentions the already straining healthcare system will be in dire straights.
This article was in reference to a study by the American Medical Association (AMA). “ Christine Sinsky, M.D., the lead author and AMA vice president of professional satisfaction, told Fierce Healthcare that “in the study, we discovered the healthcare workforce is in peril. I believe that the ‘Great Resignation’ we are seeing across all sectors of the economy hasn’t yet fully hit us in healthcare.””
What can you do now to retain your talent? Are you ensuring that your colleagues feel valued…the study revealed that feeling valued was strongly linked to a lower odyssey of reducing hours or leaving.
Now is the time to make sure your current staff is in a good place. More importantly, are you prepared if more employees are intending to leave?
