HEN Signature Event: Future of Healthcare Workforce presented by HR Affiliates

Adapting to, mobilizing, and understanding healthcare delivery

April 27, 2022 | 3 – 5:30 pm | Copper & Kings American Brandy Company, 1121 East Washington Street (Art Gallery, 2nd floor), Louisville, KY 40206

SUMMARY: GLI and presenting sponsor, HR Affiliates, presents a combined event with the Health Enterprises Network and Workforce Connections series, focused on changing the landscape of the healthcare workforce. Our elite panel of speakers includes top-level representation from Deloitte, the Kentucky Nurses Association, and the Office of Entrepreneurship and Small Business Innovation within the Kentucky Cabinet for Economic Development. The US Bureau of Labor Statistics noted that the healthcare was the second largest industry affected by The Great Resignation. Healthcare workers are reportedly leaving for better paying jobs that offer less exposure to COVID-19 and less working hours, such as positions that allow them to work from home. Demand for workers is allowing for increased mobility in this labor market. We’ll discuss how the workforce shortage has affected the delivery of healthcare, and how we can be working together to support and grow the healthcare workforce, while improving diversity and employee culture. The panel discussion will be followed by a social hour with the opportunity to enjoy hors d’ oeuvres and cocktails, meet other industry professionals and continue the conversation with our speakers.
