An organization’s workforce is at the core of its ability to achieve its goals, yet this area frequently does not receive focused investment in the C-suite. The duties of developing and maintaining a thriving staff are often scattered amongst the entire leadership team, with varying levels of responsibility living in the general Human Resources (HR) department. If your organization struggles with workforce recruitment and retention and lacks a cohesive workforce plan, a Chief Workforce Officer (CWO) could be the answer.
In this session, staff from NACHC and the Association of Clinicians for the Underserved (ACU) STAR² Center will share resources from a new CWO Toolkit and answer questions about who the CWO is, what their role is at a health center, when you should incorporate them into your organization, and why this matters. Participants will focus on strategies for incorporating this role into their health centers and how this investment in their organization benefits their patients and staff.
