Commitment to Action

Generating Investments in Frontline Health Care Workers

Commitment by

National Fund for Workforce Solutions

In 2013, CareerSTAT committed to expanding its current scope over the next five years in order to advocate for greater, more effective investments in the skills development of frontline health care workers. This includes expanding the variety of health care settings to which it advocates to include long-term care institutions and community health centers; publishing and disseminating research and case studies on the implications of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) on frontline workers; developing the criteria and procedures for a national CareerSTAT Recognition program that spotlights exemplary human resource practices for frontline workers; and providing direct technical assistance to ten emerging health care partnerships across the United States. CareerSTAT will also identify health care organizations committed to measuring the business impact of their investments in frontline workers, and work with these employers to develop a comprehensive set of quantifiable business measurements to assess the impact of training focused on frontline staff.
