According to Indeed, a shortage of physicians and nurses coupled with increasing demand for health care services means the "employment outlook is bright" for health care providers.

Paul D'Arcy, SVP at Indeed, said, "With rapid growth in demand for nurses and doctors, and a much slower growth in supply, many professionals with these highly technical skills are finding the job market to be in their favor."

According to Indeed, teaching hospitals "have a particularly strong showing in the top 10." However, the key commonality among top-ranked hospitals appears to be what employees consider "'inspiring' and 'diverse' workplaces with top tier research teams and opportunities for advancement," D'Arcy said (Strauss, Forbes, 8/29; Indeed blog, 8/28; "25 Best Places to Work: Hospitals," Indeed, 8/28; MedPage Today, 8/29).  

Next week: Help your managers drive change—and stay engaged

This volume of initiatives exists because it’s hard for any one executive to have the full picture of all the changes rolling out across the organization.

Join us next week to learn the 4 best practices to help executives better coordinate initiatives and make them more "doable" for managers.
