ACCORDING TO THE World Health Organization, healthcare faces an epidemic of stressed
and burned-out staff-a thinning talent
pipeline that's short on time and resources.
A nationwide survey by CareerBuilder and
Miracleworkers.com found that 69 percent
of healthcare workers report being stressed,
while a Press Ganey survey of hospital employees found 45 percent reported not being
engaged at work. Much of this can be attributed to the current state of the work environment: caring for patients, some of whom can
be very demanding; averaging 25,000 steps
per day; working in understaffed departments;
and having barely enough downtime for a microwavable lunch in a tight breakroom with no
available chairs.
As a result, the industry is attracting fewer
prospective candidates, while many existing
staff are calling it quits, with nearly 30 percent
of healthcare workers saying they're actively acquiring skills in a new industry, reports CareerBuilder. Meanwhile, the staff shortage further
adds to the burden on nurses, upping their risk
of personal injury and potential for work errors.
While healthcare spaces are primarily designed to support patient health and wellbeing, they are relatively unsupportive when
it comes to caring for the unique needs and
preferences of the staff responsible for delivering that care. Motivated to retain top talent
in a fiercely competitive market and improve
patient outcomes, the healthcare industry is
starting to take note of how other sectors, including its corporate counterparts, are reducing
burnout and increasing staff productivity, engagement, and satisfaction. Many of these best
practices and solutions can be applied to healthcare environments, albeit with materials and
methods more appropriate for the design conditions required. Here are five to consider.

Corporate America's marked shift to customizable workplaces, which popularized sit-to-stand
desks, focus rooms, and collaboration lounges,
can be adapted to healthcare to empower staff to tailor their environment for their specific work style.
