SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (ASSOCIATED PRESS) – Sanford Health has launched a new pilot program to attract employees who have been out of the workforce for some time.
The program it calls “returnship” is aimed at finding enough employees in a region where unemployment is low.
Current positions are in marketing and communications, finances and human resources, all based in Sioux Falls.
The 12-week program comes with extra mentoring and coaching. Sanford administrators say the hope would be that those selected for the temporary work would prove to be a good fit for permanent job at the company.
