Each Breath Counts, LLC - April 27, 2021

There has been a massive increase in demand for healthcare staff, especially nursing, travel and contractual staff. The current scenario with the pandemic prevailing at its all time high, the demand for such workers has increased manifold due to their excessive requirement with more and more number of patients being admitted in hospitals. The pay scale attached to travel and contractual has also been higher than staff employed at permanent payrolls.

With the population in the ageing category increasing with a rapid pace, the demand for labor in healthcare has been increasing gradually to meet the healthcare demands of such patients. And with the shortage of nursing staff which has been observed over these years has also turned this category of employment into lucrative opportunities.

The quality of healthcare which has been affected over these years due to shortage of such staff has been witnessed to be taken care of by active hiring of labor, physicians, therapists and healthcare technicians by staffing firms.

Many of the candidates working for travel and contractual positions in this sector have given their testimonials saying that such a requirement at work to travel has impacted their work-life in a very positive manner and made them more efficient in handling work-related challenges as well. Most of the employees have also expressed their level of satisfaction regarding the benefits that they receive from the staffing employer related to travelling, such as travel insurances, allowances etc.

We can thereby conclude by saying that labor and candidates employed in the healthcare staffing sector have been observed to be very satisfied with their work, their employers and the overall working conditions, despite facing unforeseen challenges at workplace.
