Workforce management and the pursuit of productivity have formed a consistent pain point for hospitals for several years. The Affordable Care Act has only exacerbated the problem, increasing the demand on providers as the number of insured grows and the bar continues to rise on quality of care. According to a recent HealthLeaders Media Council survey, workforce productivity and acuity-based staffing will continue to be top priorities this year. Karlene Kerfoot, PhD, chief clinical integration officer at API Healthcare, says the survey results indicate a shift taking place as workforce management initiatives are expected to deliver more than reduced labor costs.
A recent Health Leaders survey sheds light on the top 5 workforce initiatives healthcare executives across the country are using for successful quality of care and labor cost improvements. Learn how these leading strategies can help your hospital.
HealthLeaders' survey on workforce management queried leaders from a cross-section of U.S. healthcare organizations, including hospitals, health systems, physician organizations, and long-term care/skilled nursing facilities. The 150 respondents represent executives across all disciplines — administration, clinical, operations, finance, marketing, and information. In the next three to five years, hospitals, health systems, and other patient service providers expect to augment their time-and-attendance and payroll systems with integrated applications that enable more sophisticated data crunching around labor analytics, acuity management, and staffing assignments. The goal? To convert the workforce from overhead to asset — a flexible, agile asset that will help organizations succeed in an increasingly demanding regulatory and competitive environment.

We are in the midst of a global productivity crisis. The IMF estimates that if productivity growth had followed its pre-2008 financial crisis trend, overall GDP in advanced economies would be about 5% higher today. However, to blame everything on the financial crisis is misleading. The overall trend in productivity growth is stagnant and has been on a downward trend for the last several years.
This is costing the U.S. a staggering $450–$550 billion a year. In the U.K., concern is such that there have been calls for the government to set new targets and create an independent watchdog to monitor progress to improve national productivity.
There is also a workforce engagement crisis. Most people are simply not engaged at work, with industry research showing that typically 66% of people are either partly or not engaged at all at work. This means that only 1 in 3 people at work are fully motivated and productive.
Yet most companies are oblivious to this fact. Some run annual emplo
Do you know your people as well as you know your customers?
Your people’s expectations and the way they work is changing. Employees are more diverse, mobile and technologically-savvy than ever before. HR processes are changing from focusing on transactions to knowing and engaging people.
Just as sales and marketing teams use data to develop actionable and informed insights about their customers, you need to do the same in HR to know your people.
Everything, from attracting and keeping the best talent, to creating better workplace experiences and increasing employee engagement and productivity, depends on smarter decisions. These in turn rely on more actionable insights.
These are only possible through accurate HR data and analytics. They are vital to address the people challenges you face, so you can make smarter decisions.

In our latest survey report, we explore the growth challenges facing businesses and HR leaders in a rapidly changing landscape.
We surveyed over 500 HR leaders in leading organisations to explore their views on these challenges, and to find out how they are supporting people and leveraging people data to help them achieve their growth goals.
The survey revealed that:
• It’s the war for talent, again. The greatest challenges for growing companies are winning the war for talent, growing productivity and improving workforce visibility.
• Fast-growth companies share common traits in the way they manage and engage their people—we call this being a People Company.
• There’s a disconnect between managers and employees in terms of what being a People Company means.
• Becoming a People Company is a journey, with many organisations some way from embracing all aspects.
• People Science is a thing: there’s an appetite to leverage people data and analytics, but there are blockers in the way.

While we tend to think about mobility largely as a consumer phenomenon, it is also changing how the workforce carries
out business. With so much being done beyond traditional office walls, many insurance companies, financial service
organizations and even government agencies are adopting mobile tablets and smartphones as productivity tools for
agents, representatives and personnel, and developing enterprise apps for these devices.
For years, executives have been automating for efficiency, freeing workers from repetitive
tasks, streamlining the back office and looking for cost savings. Now, they are exploring
intelligent automation to establish thinking processes—processes that communicate realtime insights to employees, customers and partners across an expanding ecosystem. The
ability to add intelligence to automation opens a new universe of possibilities that will have
a profound impact on the way organizations operate and the way work gets done. More than
anything else, intelligent automation will be a defining factor for the future workforce.

The multigenerational workforce, compliance requirements, and new technologies are the top trends affecting human capital management today. This white paper explores the need for HR leaders to develop new strategies for managing the increasingly diverse workforce, and the role workforce management technology and HCM tools will play in its success.
Every organization strives for a workforce that is engaged, inspired, and motivated to perform at its best day in and day out. But what is the reality?
According to Gallup, only 13 percent of all employees worldwide today are engaged in their jobs — an alarming statistic given the importance of the workforce in fueling growth and meeting other key enterprise goals. Employees are typically an organization’s most vital (and expensive) asset, and when they are disengaged and/or disenfranchised, the ripple effects across the business can impact your profitability and branding.
In fact, each employee generation — and each individual — has unique needs and expectations regarding work. So how do you engage and inspire them? It requires a creative and differentiated approach that accounts for the unique characteristics and requirements of each generation.
Fortunately, new human capital management (HCM) technologies are available today that can help you optimize employee engagement across a
