Nearly half of all jobs in the U.S. require workers to adjust to new schedules or locations. Forty-five percent of home health aides (HHAs) work in home health care and 75% of all HHAs have to adapt to changing work schedules. For registered nurses (RNs), 65% have to adapt to changing work schedules.
In almost a quarter (23%) of jobs, work location changes more than four times per year, and for HHAs, that’s 69%, compared to RNs at 14%.
