As the healthcare environment continues to rapidly change, it is critical that each organization have a comprehensive strategy to develop, recruit, retain, and support a workforce to meet current and emerging needs. In light of HRSA’s requirements for workforce assessment, development, implementation, management, and reporting, the Workforce peer group will assist members in developing an overarching vision for strategies — all designed to build and sustain the workforce of the future. Peer group members will develop a better understanding of how to lay the groundwork for a comprehensive workforce plan necessary to enhance the experience and satisfaction of employees, providers, and related team members. Additionally, the peer group will explore strategies and approaches for tracking and evaluating metrics to better inform ongoing workforce efforts. Led by a speaker with unique health center experience at national, regional, and state levels, participants will learn important steps in the recruitment process including assessing organizational strengths and challenges, defining related roles and activities, setting priorities and identifying resources, developing a solid interview process, and documenting successes. Additionally, members will receive information and tools to bolster workforce planning, development, and management efforts to build a robust workforce plan for their health center. The Workforce Plan Peer Group will hear from Suzanne Speer, Senior Director of Workforce Development for the Association of Clinicians for the Underserved.
