One in three health care workers say they are likely to look for a new job in the next 12 months, according to a survey by Harris Interactive on behalf of the human resources and staffing company, Randstad Healthcare.
Among other findings from the survey:
- Fifty-four percent of health care workers believe they could find a new job in the next 12 months.
- About six in 10 health care workers “feel confident in the future of their employer,” and 81 percent feel secure in their jobs.
- More than a quarter of health care workers (26%) say the economy is getting stronger—a four percentage point increase from last quarter.
The survey includes online responses from 188 health care workers who are 18 or older.
