The NC Health Talent Alliance has released its Annual Workforce Survey. The goal of this survey is to gather detailed employer demand for jobs critical to health care operation. The survey will also gather demand projections. This is the first statewide effort to capture real-time employer demand.

Please take a moment to complete this important survey. The Health Talent Alliance will use this data to identify and drive meaningful improvements to our health care workforce pipeline.

Deadline for submission: Friday, March 1, 2024


Who Should Complete the Survey: We encourage participation from hiring managers or those involved in human resource management.

If you represent a larger employer with a corporate office and multiple facilities (3 or more), we are working to coordinate with you directly if providing data at the facility level is challenging. The NC Health Talent Alliance team will be actively reaching out to larger systems. However, if we have not yet connected with you, please send a note to Emily McCartha, Project Manager at the UNC Cecil G. Sheps Center for Health Services Research, at [email protected] to initiate this process. Additionally, if you work for a larger group or system and are unsure whether your organization has been in contact with us, please reach out to us or check with your organization to help us avoid duplication.

How to Participate: You can access the survey using this secure link. Additionally, an Excel template is available here for download to assist with organizing your workforce data. If you use the Excel template to organize your data, please submit it to Emily McCartha upon completion at [email protected]. If you cannot complete the online survey in one sitting, your progress will be automatically saved online.

Privacy & Security: Your data is securely stored at UNC’s Cecil G. Sheps Center. Information will only be shared in aggregate, with no PHI or HIPAA data requested. Firm-specific data will always remain confidential and strict security and privacy protocols will be followed.

For any questions related to this survey, please email Emily McCartha, PhD, Research Project Manager for the UNC Cecil G. Sheps Center for Health Services Research at [email protected].

If you’re interested in joining our NC Health Talent Alliance work, please reach out to Vincent Ginski, Director of Workforce Competitiveness for the NC Chamber Foundation directly at [email protected].
