Staff Morale Survey Results: ‘Hire More Staff’

Sponsors: Intelycare and Vocera

Our quick pulse of the industry shows that while staff in the post-acute world felt that their organizations overall had a good (47%) or great (29%) response to COVID-19, morale could be better as we head into the second half of 2021.

Overall staff morale was rated mostly “fair” (59%), and none rated it “great.”

Most strikingly, when asked what “the most important type of support is most needed to boost staff morale,” overwhelmingly, the answer was to hire more staff (65%). This took precedence over higher pay (24%), more transparency (6%), and more flexibility (6%). No one selected more equipment or more access to COVID-19 vaccines.
