10th Annual People in Healthcare Summit

Sustaining Engagement, Leadership and Culture in Times of Crisis and Change

September 21st – 22nd, 2020
The AMA Atlanta Executive Conference Center

Human Resource departments in Healthcare are facing a situation unlike any they have before. The COVID outbreak has highlighted any number of problems, from how healthcare organizations operate from a business perspective to how understaffed many are in facing this crisis.

Amid a pandemic, the industry faces perhaps its biggest challenge yet. Busy hospitals in places where COVID-19 has hit the community hard are coping with difficult circumstances. The pandemic has caused the cancellation of voluntary and non-emergency procedures, an important revenue generator for hospitals who now need money for everything from PPE to increased staff hours.

This has left leaders with difficult decisions and HR departments trying to keep the workforce engaged and able to fight burnout. As leaders do everything in their power to beat COVID-19 and ensure their hospitals survive the crisis, they must urgently safeguard employees’ needs and facilitate their success. This crisis calls for worldclass people leadership.

According to Gallup, only 54% of healthcare employees feel well prepared to do their job, and even fewer (37%) feel very confident they’ll be able to successfully do their job if the outbreak continues. There has never been a more critical time to support the brave individuals who risk their lives each day to care for and help others.

The 10th Annual People in Healthcare Summit will be equipping HR leaders with strategies and materials to ensure efficient and effective crisis management so that they can sustain engagement and wellness, culture and performance, patient and employee experience, as well as position themselves as a strategic partner while upholding the critical value of talent management in the midst of a global pandemic.
