Career Pathways in Healthcare

Posted by Emma Rose Gallimore on 10/23/19 11:00 AM

Paving career pathways for healthcare workers

The healthcare industry has been booming for decades. While consistent growth brings plenty of opportunity, it also creates challenges. The skills gap in healthcare is real and pressing. To continue to meet the needs of their patients, healthcare employers need a strategy to attract and retain middle-skills talent. 

Career pathways should be at least a part of that strategy. With the right training, workers in non-clinical roles can transition to clinical roles. Similarly, new hires for entry level positions can upskill for more specialized jobs. 

When you pave clear career pathways for employees, you do a lot more than help them find their next position. You give them the tools to contribute and thrive within your hospital or clinic. As a result, they’re more engaged and provide better patient care. They’re also less likely to search for new opportunities elsewhere. Career pathways build loyalty, strengthen talent pipelines, and improve outcomes for your organization.
