Prompted in part by the ideas presented for the technology innovation project, the Human Resources Committee of the Board of Directors has become increasingly concerned about the ability to identify, recruit, and retain the appropriate skill mix for the organization.

The CEO has designated an interdisciplinary team and asked it to prepare an analysis of current trends and their impact on the organization’s human resources in 2025. More specifically, the CEO relays that the Board Chair has expressed concern about workforce shortages in such key areas as nursing, medical technology, and long-term care.
