Workplace Flexibility in the Health Services Industry

WorkFlexAndProfessionalsUsing data from the 2008 National Study of Employers and the 2008 National Study of the Changing Workforce, this study reveals that the health service industry is at the forefront of workplace flexibility implementation. Employers in health services are far more likely than employers in other industries to see flexibility as a business tool rather than a favor or a perk. In addition, they are more likely than employers in other industries to use workplace flexibility to attract highly skilled workers, and they provide much more flexibility than other employers. The study looks at the demographics of workers in the health services industry, the types of jobs they have, their health and wellness, the turnover rates and retirement plans, and employers efforts towards recruitment and retention, to see if flexibility has affected any of these factors. We find that employers in the health services industry have realized that offering workplace flexibility has helped them remain competitive in a fast-paced industry.
