History has shown that as the wealth of a country
increases, so, too, does its demand for healthcare. [ This
has held true for Southeast Asia over the past decade,
despite the global downturn, with demand for more
and better healthcare rising sharply along with the
region?s rapidly growing economies. Also adding to
this growing need for healthcare is Southeast Asia?s
increasing urbanisation, aging population, and greater
access to new medical technologies.
1.An impending trend of significant turnover- At the moment, said Wingrove, the industry is seeing ?almost a perfect storm.? ?Because of the recession, we have a lot of people nervous and consequently staying in their jobs. But we?re not seeing an increase in salaries, and so, there?s growing evidence there is a latent dissatisfaction and people are questioning whether loyalty makes sense anymore.? Add to that evidence of a growing belief that when the economy picks up, we?re bound to see major turnover, continued Wingrove. ?They think the grass is greener on the other side, and that concerns me because in healthcare in particular, skilled workforce and proven experience is highly valuable for efficiency reasons. I do feel this year or next we?ll see some serious churn of staff combined with a lack of high caliber new talent coming through.?
2.The undertrained millennial generation- In addition to the lack of new talent entering the healthcare workforce, Wingrove said serious underlying issues exist when it comes to the country?s educational system. ?I?m convinced we?re not doing enough to drive up the caliber of the people who are exiting the educational system and [are coming] into the workforce,? he said. There are two areas he believes we?re falling short: the actual skill level of recent graduates, and failing to encourage college students to pursue the more technical fields. ?Now, I think it?s better than it was,? Wingrove said. ] Auto answered|Score 1|luvred48|Points 20|
