Allied Healthcare Workers, the key to healthcare’s success

Allied workforces are crucial to improving healthcare delivery in our country. During major shifts like the pandemic, service providers face multiple important and urgent demands that can interfere with providing essential services. Primarily, the frontline staff has the most face-to-face care for patients in most settings, home care, long-term care, behavioral healthcare, and traditional hospital settings.

At the same time, the emerging workforce is facing issues of their own caused by the pandemic and generally the market forces of the healthcare industry. Namely, the relatively low wages and demanding work schedules, exacerbated by the disruption in schedules due to quarantines, school closure, and learning from home.

Kompendium has shifted recently to talent engagement in allied health and assisting organizations in the healthcare industry in delivering services that require allied health skills. We partner with companies in home care, long-term care, mental health, and traditional healthcare to find ways to improve the attraction and retention of this important group of professionals. We are working hard each day to find suitable opportunities for allied health professionals. We are also working with them to update their resumes to put them in the best position to succeed with their job search.

Positions in allied health are often the entry point to a career in healthcare. We want to change the perception that it is a job, a career, and allied health workers are professionals. They spend the most time with our sick and recovering. They need to have extensive experience, knowledge, and interpersonal skills compared with their compensation levels. We do believe that harnessing the aptitude of this line of healthcare workers will better serve the healthcare community and provide rewarding careers for our professionals.
