William S. Dalton, Ph.D., M.D.
CEO/Center Director
H. Lee Moffitt Cancer Center


I believe most organizations (in and out of Florida) are faced with difficulties in recruiting for certain types of positions. In addition, all are facing an aging workforce which, in turn, adds to the projected labor shortage increases. This presents many challenges as we try to recruit and retain all positions. Our most valuable asset is our employees.

The work environment is an important factor for employee satisfaction in cancer research and delivery of cancer care. We continue to develop innovative recruiting and retention tools to maintain a competitive edge in the marketplace. These include recognizing our employees through employee referral programs, flexible working arrangements such as compressed work schedules, job sharing, etc., and competitive benefit and compensation programs. For example, we offer reduced health insurance premiums for employees, based on their length of service. The longer they are employed, the greater the discount provided on their health insurance premiums by the Cancer Center.
