36X - Implementable Strategies for Driving Results in Employee and Community Wellness
Tuesday, March 21
Over the past two years, 20% of the healthcare workforce has left the industry. Combine this with a growing and aging population, and there is a critical need for healthcare executives to focus on attracting and retaining talent to sufficiently care for the needs of the future U.S. population.
In this session, presenters will discuss the responsibility of healthcare leaders to implement manageable solutions to support team member well-being, something that has suffered greatly in the healthcare industry over the past two years. During the pandemic, former hospital president Michael Goldberg and wellness expert Jennifer Jacobs collaborated to improve the wellness of healthcare workers at one of New York’s largest hospitals. This session will share the lessons learned to design large-scale, effective wellness programs that improved morale, reduced turnover and sick days.
The use of an actual case study and a list of implementable options with varying degrees of impact will provide immediate take-home tools to reduce employee turnover and improve the health and wellness of the community.
- Understand the macroeconomic dynamics facing the healthcare industry for the next 20 years.
- Construct and implement manageable programs to support employee and community wellness.
