Adjusting to Tech Savvy Millennials in the Healthcare Workforce

Millenial Healthcare WorkersEven though we have a multi-generational workforce and all the complexities that entails, paying attention to millennials is something that cannot be avoided. It has been estimated that in the next 10 years they will be 75% of the workforce.

There are many ways we hear millennials described and there is an abundance of white papers and articles trying to help guide managers as they work to understand this generation. While sorting though it all and making plans to harness their potential, there is something you can do immediately to begin bridging the generation gap that comes with the growing millennial workforce. Make the simple move to cloud-based scheduling.

Technology matters to them, being mobile and easy to use is not considered a luxury, it is an expectation. If your staffing is not automated, if you are automated on outdated and clunky technology, you are adding to the distance between you and millennials. Cloud-based scheduling not only speaks to their tech savvy nature, when well designed, it is also engaging and empowering which they also value.
