Healthcare Highlights

Few Segments have Weathered Change Like the Healthcare Industry

The healthcare industry has been dealing with workforce struggles, including shortages of skilled professionals and increased workloads. However, the industry has also witnessed recent layoffs, particularly in non-clinical areas, as healthcare organizations have had to make difficult financial decisions due to factors such as changes in reimbursement models and the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Throughout 2022, Right Management supported healthcare leaders in evaluating current and future readiness of their teams, fostered the growth of key leaders, and assisted the transition of those who were not part of the organization’s future plans.
