The AHA today released strategies for building your workforce team, the final section in its three-part guide to strengthening the health care workforce. Today’s section focuses on recruitment and retention, diversity and inclusion, and creative staffing models. Sections 1 and 2 focus on supporting the team; and using data and technology to support the workforce. The AHA Board of Trustees’ Task Force on Workforce provided guidance for the series, with input from AHA members. 

“Despite the most trying of circumstances, our health care workforce continues to give of themselves to offer healing and consolation, night and day, day-in and day-out,” said Ron Werft, task force chair and president and CEO of Cottage Health. “There is no higher priority than ensuring that we care for the caregiver, that we make our working environment safe and that we foster the ability for individuals to have joy in their work.”
