Bangalore: The health care industry requires an extremely educated, engaged and high-in-demand workforce. All these factors make life-or-death decisions every day as mentioned by John Commins in healthLeadersmedia.com.



An assessment by HRs in strategic planning is required to meet the inevitable and ever increasing shortage of skilled healthcare professionals and patient satisfaction.



The potential to recruit, retain, engage, and develop highly motivated clinical teams is essential for hospitals to be successful according to a post on prophecyhealth.com



The HR and Nursing teams should collaborate to create and maintain a culture of quality-driven, engaged employees.  This work culture will have a positive result on the patients, the workforce, and the organization.



The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (ARHQ) defines “selective hiring” to fill vacancies with the highest quality candidates.



Healthcare HRs have traditionally been "reactive and not necessarily proactive" around long-term planning and other strategic aims, said Stephanie Drake, executive director of the American Society for Healthcare Human Resources Administration (ASHHRA).



The direct alignment of organizational strategy with the development of a Human Capital Strategy and Plan has become centerpiece of the strategic roles according to a post on capgemini.com



These strategies include:



•    Anticipation of trends in workforce; such as aging population, succession planning, etc.  
•    Effective hiring through competency and staff development to meet the talent needs.



According to a post by Meredith Juengel on prophecyhealth.com, the industry is always looking to operate in a much better and efficient manner to provide the best possible patient care.
