The global economy is in the grip of a labor crisis, with headlines blaring about worker shortages across industries from trucking to hotels to banking. The senior living industry has not been spared from pandemic-related workforce challenges — but the current difficulties might only be worsening a system that was already under immense pressure before Covid-19.

Multiple senior living executives have told Senior Housing News that enhanced unemployment benefits enacted during the pandemic are a major reason why staffing challenges have intensified in 2021, and that conditions will improve once those benefits dissipate. But some senior living employees believe the industry has more systemic issues that stand in the way of hiring, such as stagnant wages, burnout, lack of motivation, and little recognition of the important role they play on the health care continuum.

This is not just happening in the senior living industry. Retail workers, for example, are quitting their jobs in droves in search of jobs that are not as stressful, more in line with their passions or are just something new. In some cases, the pandemic has shifted worker expectations about what a job should — and shouldn’t — be.
