2018 CareerSTAT Frontline Healthcare Worker Champion Blog Series

CareerSTAT’s Frontline Healthcare Worker Champion program recognizes healthcare organizations investing in the careers and skills of their frontline workers. Organizations are designated as Champions and Emerging Champions. Champions meet all of CareerSTAT’s recognition criteria, including making skill and career development accessible, offering programs at a significant scale, measuring program business impact, and building sustainable programs. Emerging Champions are in earlier stages of investment and working with CareerSTAT leaderships to strengthen their programs.

In 2018, seven U.S. healthcare employers were selected as Frontline Healthcare Worker Champions and Emerging Champions by their peers. This year’s Champions and Emerging Champions have engaged supervisors as career coaches, designed employee education programs that prepare workers to advance, and established healthcare apprenticeships.
