The Future of Careers in Healthcare

A Step-by-Step Process for Designing & Implementing Career Pathways

The Future of Careers in Healthcare Using a cutting-edge talent intelligence approach, the inaugural Global Workforce Intelligence (GWI) Project industry report uncovered a critical finding: by 2025, healthcare organizations will have a previously-insurmountable gap in clinical care talent of 2.1 million people. In fact, one in three nursing roles will remain unfilled if healthcare organizations – which happen to be the single largest employer in the United States – try to tackle the talent shortage with traditional methods. 

With GWI Project research, The Josh Bersin Company didn’t just diagnose a systemic problem… it also used data to prescribe a solution. Taking the recommendation to expand beyond traditional recruiting and retention efforts to acquire talent and also focus on reorganizing roles and reskilling existing employees to help solve the problem, The Future of Careers in Healthcare report offers a strategic, step-by-step strategy to leverage skilling to close the gap with career pathways.
