Health care workers are heroic, but even heroes get worn down.
The relentless COVID-19 grind has placed an immense burden on health care organizations around the globe, and workers are suffering under the strain. As a result, an alarming percentage of your workforce is likely suffering from burnout, fatigue and high levels of chronic stress.
As NPR reports: “The unflappable health care heroes of the current crisis are beginning to crack under the strain. Doctors, nurses and other professionals are not only fighting an intractable virus day after day, they’re also coping with isolation, shifting official guidelines and limited ways to recharge.”
With no end to the pandemic in sight, how can you keep these crucial workers feeling uplifted, encouraged and motivated? It starts with reaching your team in meaningful ways that make their jobs—and lives—a bit easier.
To help provide strategic clarity and direction for those eager to engage dispersed, on-the-move, non-desk health care employees, Staffbase—a foremost expert in employee comms and people-first intranets—has created “The Communications Playbook for HealthCare,” which offers insights into:
- The current state of health care workplace communication, which continues to lag behind most industries.

- Reducing turnover and burnout.
- And much more.
Health care workers don’t need any extra headaches right now. Stilted, confusing communication can make a stressful job even worse, which will only hasten burnout and turnover.
