The Challenge

Like many institutions, Johns Hopkins Hospital recognized that America’s talent pipeline was no longer producing an exceptional workforce that demonstrated twenty-first-century skills. The hospital knew that its future success depended on a diverse and talented labor pool.  

The Solution

Through Johns Hopkins’s Skills Enhancement Program, potential new hires and current employees receive work-readiness and job-skills training via courses taught on the hospital campus. Results include a reduction in turnover costs, an increase in employee engagement and a 74 percent return on investment.
