Trends and Future of Health CareAs the healthcare landscape continues to evolve, it is essential for health leaders to keep informed with industry trends to successfully develop healthcare HR and recruitment strategies for their organizations (Lester, 2018). Additionally, updating existing HR approaches based on new developments can help companies navigate easily through future challenges by making talent management a priority and embracing regularity and policy changes (Garland, 2018).Trend One- Employee EngagementDisengaged employees are clocking in, doing their work, and clocking out- they are not genuinely invested in ensuring organizational success (Dewar, 2018), and while this might be a problem in all industries, costing organizations time and money, in the healthcare sector, when lives are on the line, employee engagement becomes a matter of life and death (Garland, 2018). In fact, according to Lester (2018), approximately 20% of all hospital employees are either disengaged or ambivalent, with nurses having the highest level of disengagement, which is one of the top determining factors in patient mortality rates. As such, as a result of disengaged health workers, patient care and employee satisfactionare being impacted tremendously, causing healthcare executives to follow the new HR trend in establishing and nurturing a culture of employee engagement (Dewar, 2016).
