Hiring and Developing Staff to Create a Better Workforce
Finding the Right Person, Right Now
Staff turnover is a common challenge facing many community and rural health centers. With limited candidates to choose from, organizations sometimes hire based on availability—not suitability—for an open role, and then hope that their training is sufficient to get the new employee ready for a difficult job. Often, it’s not, and the new hires quickly become former employees.
The consequences of high turnover and a poorly prepared workforce are severe. Being short-staffed negatively impacts the remaining staff, and the quality of services declines. There must be a better way.
