The workload of the health sector is often headline news, especially recently because of the challenges posed by the pandemic. Part-time and flexible work models are becoming increasingly important for employees, placing new demands on traditional personnel management processes. That is why the traditional system has been developed into a more comprehensive workforce management system, which considers all the activities needed for a productive personnel model - including line managers, training managers, recruitment, planning and analysis of data.
Forward looking workforce management enables the Swiss healthcare sector to significantly increase both cost efficiency and staff satisfaction. All it takes is modern software. That might sound almost too good to be true, but Inacta can offer proven software solutions that significantly optimise workforce management.
Swiss hospitals and clinics have been wrestling with the term digitalisation with its different meanings, and opinions about digitalisation, for quite some time. This year will not have been any easier, as the current pandemic is pushing many healthcare institutions to their limits. In fact, the motto for digitalisation in 2020 could have been ‘no time like the present’ - particularly in respect of HR and personnel processes. Efficiently designed processes are essential for an effective management system, particularly in times of extraordinary stress.
2020 has shown us more than ever how important employees in the healthcare sector are. Their performance is essential for the well-being of the Swiss population, whilst they are at risk of infection themselves. This is where the digitalisation of workforce management can create more confidence. Here are a few examples of what that could look like:
Even during stressful and hectic times we need to reflect and analyse. By asking the right questions, we can identify our weak points and with the right analysis address them successfully. The digitalisation of workforce management should be seen as a long-term investment that solves current problems and gives a company greater stability and flexibility. Another advantage of optimising processes is increased resilience during crises.
