  • Human Resources in the Healthcare IndustryThe Healthcare Industry is currently the largest employer in the U.S. with 13.6 million jobs Healthcare is likely to remain the nations largest employer and may even extend its lead Seven of the 20 fastest growing occupations in the country are in healthcare The healthcare labor market will grow by a rate of 49% over the next five years

  • 31 percent of healthcare expenditures in the U.S. go for administrative costsA large part of the solution in improving healthcare in the U.S. lies in managing the talent that drives the system and also accounts for most of its costs Human Resources in the Healthcare Industry

  • Talent Management Challenges in HealthcareNew graduates are insufficient to meet growing demand in the healthcare sector (RN, LPN, PharmD, RPh, Allied)Experienced nurses, mostly middle-aged women, are leaving the profession at an alarming pace An aging population and its greater healthcare needs will inevitably collide with an aging healthcare workforce preventable only if healthcare organizations put plans and solutions in place starting now Current dependence on contractors Better talent management practices will result in a more efficient use of existing staff and reduce this dependence

  • Talent Management RealitiesOutdated processes can overwhelm HR staff (and hiring managers) when they need to quickly identify the best candidatesHR may be overlooking qualified talent within their own organization that might be available to fill important roles if they only knew about them.Resignation should not be, yet most often is, the trigger for a succession planning event.

  • Equip supervisors and managers in talent management skills so that they are better at motivating, coaching and developing the talent that reports to them Improve retention through employee engagement, career development, mentoring - pairing new employees with a mentorDevelop critical employees for future positions college th tuition reimbursement programs, training, on-the-job training, team projects and stretch assignments, coaching, mentoring and action learning - learning while working on real business challengesTalent Management Responses for Healthcare

  • Global Talent Management SurveySoftscape Research interviewed more than 200 HR leaders from around the world via a web-based survey in late 2008. The sample represented a diverse collection of more than twenty industries and was roughly evenly distributed among large enterprises (more than 5,000 employees; 54% of sample) and small- and medium- sized organizations (100-5,000 employees; 46% of sample).

  • Global Softscape Survey Results (2009)74% of the organizations surveyed and 83% of large enterprises (over 5,000 Ee) now believe that integrated talent management is mission critical.

    More than 70% of companies believe that organizations with integrated talent management strategies and processes have better financial performance than those that have not integrated their talent functions.

    66% of companies believe linking learning management to other core talent functions yields stronger revenue growth.

  • Global Softscape Survey Results (2009)56% of those surveyed say that Succession Planning, when extended to the entire workforce, positively impacts sales growth.More than half (52%) believe that an increased focus on measuring workforce performance is critical to identifying and retaining high performers.Virtually gone are the days when HR is viewed as merely a transactional, back-office, tactical function.Nearly two-thirds of HR professionals in large enterprises (more than 5,000 employees) still believe their workforces are not adequately prepared to meet their companies future plans.
