Workforce Talent Survey: Healthcare (Graphic: Business Wire)

Stocks in this article: MWW

Monster.com, the worldwide leader in successfully connecting people to job opportunities and flagship brand of Monster Worldwide, Inc. (NYSE: MWW), today released new survey results detailing healthcare sector worker attitudes on employment. Healthcare professionals are the third most satisfied with all aspects of their job, following closely behind engineering and finance employees.

The survey also indicates these workers are healthily optimistic, with 81% of Healthcare workers confident about finding a job within the next 12 months. Registered nurses, physical therapists and occupational therapists are currently the top three occupations in demand, by volume of available jobs within the healthcare industry along with nursing, medical and home health assistants in supporting roles. Interestingly, the top markets with opportunities for these professions include some of the most sought after and most saturated job markets in the nation such as New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Dallas and Houston 2. More than one-third of respondents (34%) agree that there are more related job openings now than there were a year ago.

One area of dissatisfaction for healthcare employees is compensation. The survey found that few (20%) healthcare professionals believe their employers are willing to provide higher compensation compared to the previous year.

“This latest survey indicates stagnant compensation levels have left healthcare professionals dissatisfied, “said Jeffrey Quinn, Vice President of Monster’s Global Insights. “On a more positive note, about half (45%) of the surveyed participants agreed that their employers are willing to provide the time and training needed to support a job or job function. In addition, a majority (57%) believes hiring managers understand their skills and abilities. These survey results, in combination with current levels of demand for these skills, indicate Healthcare-related professionals have reason to be cautiously optimistic about their employment prospects.”

Completing this picture of Healthcare employment, it is important to note that every minute approximately 190 medical or health-related jobs are viewed on Monster, demonstrating high levels of activity across both job seekers and employers.
