Earlier this year, hospitals and other healthcare organizations braced for a surge of COVID-19 patients – and as cases climb across the United States, many are in the midst of or looking toward another wave. While organizations try to maintain operations and innovate in an increasingly uncertain economic environment, many clinicians and medical staff are worrying about the safety and well-being of themselves and their families while juggling added responsibilities and pressure at work and at home. In order to thrive in the midst of all this, leaders must find ways to keep employees engaged and committed to the organization’s mission, values, and goals.
To get a better understanding of how the current climate is impacting employee experience, Workhuman® conducted a pulse survey of more than 3,000 full-time U.S. workers in early May across various industries, including healthcare workers. Their candid responses illustrate what’s most important right now and where organizations should focus attention for future initiatives.
