Since the beginning of the pandemic, we've been dedicated to helping healthcare organizations, businesses and state governments navigate through this health crisis. We're now playing a key role in assisting healthcare systems and governments across the country with their mass vaccination programs.
But what's next?
We want to help organizations of all types be better prepared for the future by capturing key learnings that will endure well beyond COVID. #PlanandPersevere is our way of providing resources, insights and strategies for near- and long-term health-related needs.
On this page, you'll see advice from our leadership on moving forward post-pandemic. You can also access information that addresses pressing needs around COVID treatment and vaccinations, as well as articles on strategic growth, including how to contain costs and utilize your core and contingent staff most effectively.
We asked executives from across our company this question: What one piece of advice they would give for moving forward post-COVID? Here's what they said:
"Invest in your leadership team because they will need to be stronger than ever to lead the charge on change. Think differently....the same Talent Acquisition strategies that worked before won't work in the future. Healthcare professionals want and need more flexibility. You need to create a flexible work environment that matches what healthcare professionals want, in order to drive satisfaction and attract more talent to your system."
"The advice I would give is twofold. First, to move past the present, you have to anticipate the future, which is extremely complex with many variables. Instead of mapping out ideal states, map out how you can remain agile and flexible to cover both an accelerated and decelerated pace. Know ahead of time where it's important to keep investment and for how long during deceleration phases. For acceleration, know your levers, such as your internal resources and external partners, and don't be afraid to pull them.
The second piece of advice is something I live by. No matter what you are going through, it is always important to remember that it's a point in time. In that point in time, you may feel stressed, pressed, and pushed to your limits. The point in time may last longer than a "true moment", as we have seen in the pandemic, but it is a moment on the continuum of time. Acknowledge the moment, allow yourself to be in the moment, do what you need to do in the moment and you will continue forward."
"Sometimes to move forward we need to take a look back. There were a ton of innovative ideas that were developed throughout the pandemic that can be re-purposed for the future. Evaluate those best practices and utilize them! If we learned anything during COVID, it is to dig deep, think outside of the norm. Try things that make an impact."
"When I listen to clients about what is needed to achieve success coming out of COVID, there are three themes: Drive time-to-revenue improvement, deliver cost savings without impacting quality, and implement new models that sustain these initiatives into the future."
