Struggling to manage critical compensation functions amidst an ongoing health care workforce crisis?

Hospitals and health systems nationwide need help to meet staffing needs and build a sustainable pipeline of future talent as turnover remains high, burnout increases, and the demand for patient care outweighs the supply. In addition, employee compensation programs and pay practices have grown more complex as organizations look to address the ongoing impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and other emerging industry trends.

These challenges continue to generate a substantial burden for various HR functions and can result in a lack of time and resources for addressing key operational needs.
