Well-Being of Healthcare Professionals: A Post-Pandemic Analysis
Well-being of Healthcare Professionals
Besides employees' performance, workplace conditions, compensation and employees' overall well-being are a significant concern in all types of organizational settings. Alongside other health, social and economic consequences, the COVID-19 pandemic has also affected frontline healthcare workers. Collecting cross-sectional data from employees from healthcare workers, employing a quota sampling method, this study attempts to evaluate the level of the overall well-being of healthcare employees. For this purpose, the PERMA-Profiler model of overall well-being is used. Among the seven dimensions of the measure, the scores on meaningfulness, relationships, and accomplishment were relatively higher. Moreover, no significant variation is noted among the different healthcare worker groups (doctors, nurses, technicians). The results suggest that the overall well-being of the healthcare professionals is satisfactory and that the perceived meaningfulness in life and sense of relationships is higher in the post-pandemic scenario.
