The exceptional events of 2020 exposed many of the hidden flaws in the healthcare system that harm not only patients but also healthcare employees and their health. Anti-racism movements demanded that healthcare organizations reframe their inclusion and diversity initiatives. The COVID-19 pandemic forced systems to respond to worker stress, strain, and burnout. These events and others have reinforced the demand for a lively and constantly evolving approach to human resources in healthcare.

Human Resources in Healthcare: Managing for Success, 5th Edition, (PDF) addresses the key realities and trends in healthcare human relations. The subjects explored provide readers with a solid foundation for working successfully with people in healthcare organizations. The ebook’s aim is to equip managers with the conflict management and problem-solving skills necessary to implement sound human resources policies.

This latest Human Resources in Healthcare 5th edition by Sampson/Fried includes three new chapters based on recent developments. One studies burnout and worker well-being in the changing healthcare landscape and in the face of a pandemic. Another emphasizes on diversity, inclusion, and belonging, offering problem-based cases and a tool for diversity strategy development. The third addresses worker retention, as Generation Z and millennials become a larger share of the workforce.

  • Vignettes in each chapter that challenge students with difficult ethical dilemmas
  • Updates on the increasing use of technology and its effect on the employer–employee relationship
