Aging Boomers Fuel Healthcare Employment Growth
While employment within the health care sector has grown dramatically over the past 16 years, the composition of the workforce has undergone surprisingly few changes. Between 2000 and 2016, the number of people working in the health care space expanded by more than 40 percent, while the overall private sector grew less than 10 percent. Given the aging population, combined with advancements in technology over the past 15 years, I’m a bit surprised there haven’t been more substantive shifts in occupational structures across the industry.
