Welcome to the future of Healthcare HR

A year-round network for the most forward-thinking healthcare HR teams
to work with their peers to solve common problems together and
help each other make better people decisions with more confidence

A unique network for senior HR leaders in healthcare

Built by the Healthcare HR community, for the Healthcare HR community

The healthcare workforce has undergone fundamental change in recent years and the conventional healthcare HR model has reached a point of diminishing returns, necessitating a transformation in our approach to HR that relies on an urgent re-imagining of the status quo. 

Tackling the increasing labor shortage and delivering better patient outcomes relies on healthcare organizations employing new, high-impact people practices that move the needle on how we attract, recruit, develop, support, inspire and retain our employees. But innovation can’t happen in isolation, and meaningful workforce redesign necessitates a collaborative effort, uniting HR leaders who are eager to challenge traditional thinking together.

That's the objective of the LEAP HR: Healthcare Searchlight network: a year-round network for the most forward-thinking healthcare HR teams to work with their peers to solve common problems together and help each other make better people decisions with more confidence.

By bringing this collective of pioneering and innovative peers together, this network will not only to exchange invaluable solutions but also to embark on a journey of co-creation, shaping the future landscape of healthcare HR together. 

This network offers timely and future focused insights, along with connections tailored to the unique demands of healthcare HR. Through this, healthcare leaders and their teams will be empowered to navigate the future with increased agility, proactively meeting the evolving demands of an ever-changing industry.

Innovation doesn’t happen in isolation

Searchlight makes meaningful progress

“I joined the network to provide my new leaders with opportunities for development by exposing them to diverse perspectives beyond the confines of our hospital. Having access to this network will enhance our collective ability to strategize and develop projects and goals, ensuring a valuable resource for more thoughtful and effective outcomes."

“This is such a good idea because a year-round dialogue like this is so badly needed among Healthcare HR leaders - especially right now. But for this initiative to fulfil it’s obvious potential, it can’t just be us talking to each other. We need external thought partners who can come in and help us really challenge conventional thinking as a group. And identifying and selecting these external partners will be really important: they really need to be able to think differently and help us do likewise. Get the right partner and assemble the right audience, though, and we can really make a difference.” 

“LEAP impressively avoids getting bogged down in tactical details and instead fosters higher-level conversations. I joined to engage in discussions that may not always yield immediate answers but are integral to our progress toward overarching goals."
