DATIS HR Cloud, Inc., released the results of their 2017 Workforce Management Trends Survey measuring priorities of Health and Human Services executives and their readiness to address emerging Workforce Management trends in 2017.

Results from the nationwide survey of 284 industry executives, whose titles range from CEOs to HR Directors, revealed numerous communication barriers within organizations and identified major flaws in many recruiting and retention strategies.

Most respondents agreed that recruiting and retention should be the focus for their organization in 2017, yet over 75% of respondents described their recruiting process as “Slightly Effective” or “Moderately Effective.”

Other key findings include:

  • 49.4% of organizations have dealt with compliance issues within the past 12 months
  • 1 in 3 organizations (32.4%) reported a turnover rate of over 20%
  • 40% of organizations currently do not have a plan to increase employee engagement
  • Over 60% of organizations plan to invest in data and analytics tools over the next 12 months
  • Around 75% of organizations plan to increase their headcount in 2017

Workforce management continues to play a crucial role in an organization’s ability to grow and develop.
