The importance of workforce planning has become more apparent following the emergence of the COVID-19 pandemic. When considering staff recruitment and retention, it is important to take a holistic approach and consider factors beyond compensation and benefits. Employee satisfaction, employee engagement, open communication, and workforce culture should all be taken into consideration in order to create a healthy work environment for all.

A new resource repository from ACU’s STAR2 Center aims to be a starting point for health center leadership and staff needing to better understand different techniques, tools, and practices for self-care and a guide to create systemic changes to support them. Explore resources on staff satisfaction, pay equity, education pathways, tuition assistance, and more.
