It’s been a difficult year for everyone, with healthcare organizations taking a big hit. If you’re looking to hire, it can be especially challenging in a climate where medical professionals are so in demand. This is particularly true for hospitals and elder care staffing.
As more and more workers are exposed to COVID-19 and must quarantine, maintaining optimal staffing levels can seem impossible. At the same time, there’s a rise in cases, leading to an increased need for patient care. It’s a one-two punch that’s leaving both healthcare organizations and workers reeling.
In addition, when it comes to the act of hiring itself, the near-overnight changes are dramatic. Gone are the days of the in-person interview. Instead, you must now rely on Zoom meetings and other video tools in order to interview and screen potential new hires virtually and get them on board as quickly as possible.
What’s more is that even before the COVID-19 pandemic, healthcare professionals were hard to recruit. In fact, the industry was projected to add more jobs – over 4 million – than any other industry between 2012 and 2022, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS). Now, that number is likely higher, which is why it’s so important for healthcare organizations to consider partnering with a recruiter.
That’s where Provisional Recruiting can help. As an experienced recruiter in the healthcare industry, we can provide you with a range of valuable benefits, including:
- Knowledge. We understand the critical role of medical professionals in this global crisis and can work with you to source and screen the qualified people you need in many different roles, from nurse to COVID screener. We know where to find top talent and what they’re looking for in an employer. We also understand how to best promote your opportunities, so they’re appealing to qualified individuals.
- Strategy. In addition to our knowledge of the healthcare industry, we can also help you create a staffing strategy that makes sense for your organization. Hiring by the seat of your pants doesn’t work well. Instead, we’ll invest time and energy in learning about your organization, as well as its hiring needs and culture, all so we can keep you staffed optimally at all times.
- Fit. During the hiring process, it’s important to go well beyond the resume and interview performance. Just because a candidate checks all the boxes on paper, doesn’t mean they’re the right fit for your needs. Our experts know how to dig deeper and get behind the candidate mask, so we’re connecting you with healthcare professionals who are truly right for the role and your organization’s culture.
