Just a few days ago we were all in “festive” mood, preparing for the holidays, spending time with family, and getting ready to say goodbye to 2018.

Blogs ranged from topics such as retaining professionals, hiring and onboarding, emerging healthcare trends (telemedicine, digital technology/robotics/automated tools etc.), having an online presence, HR, among others.
