REPORT: Strengthening the health-serving workforce
During COVID-19, OCH heard from a lot of diverse health partners about the challenges around retaining and sustaining a talented workforce. Through this report, OCH sought to learn how those in the health field are innovating to recruit, engage, develop, and retain employees. A strong workforce is key to the mission of OCH and that of local partners.
This report is a step towards better understanding the strengths and opportunities of the health-serving workforce across Clallam, Jefferson, and Kitsap Counties, and the sovereign Tribal nations within the Olympic region. Everyone has a role to play in this important work. Through regional reporting and conversations with a diverse group of local partners, OCH has elevated community recommendations in this report.
