Shortages in the labour market cause a lack of qualified personnel in many sectors, among which the healthcare sector. In the second quarter of 2018, there were more than 31,000 vacancies in the Netherlands. And in the US they expect a shortage of more than 120,000 employees by 2030. This lack of personnel is partly caused by the increasing demand for health care as a result of, among other conditions, the ageing population and the decline in informal caregivers. On top of that, there are too few people that are being trained for a job in health care. With all its consequences, such as sickness absence and outflow to other professional groups. It is, therefore, a major challenge for healthcare institutions to attract qualified personnel and that will not change in the near future.
