Data Reports

With inflation at a 40-year high and competition for workers remaining intense, the salaries and wages of healthcare workers who weathered the pandemic storm are rising, creating new challenges for medical practices and health systems in updating retention and recruitment strategies. 

While the worst of the COVID-19 pandemic is past, medical practice leaders will face intense pressure to navigate the financial squeeze of higher costs and the competitive market for workers, requiring that they monitor economic forces, benchmark for compensation to stay competitive, and invest in successful retention and recruitment strategies. Each of these elements is vital in creating workplaces that stand out to applicants and offer rewarding, fulfilling work to frontline workers.

This data report reveals many of the benchmarks included in the 2022 MGMA DataDive Management and Staff Compensation, from the C-suite to the front desk.
