9 Tips For Recruiting in the Healthcare Field
Posted by Insightlink on 05/17/21
Finding a job can be stressful, but looking for employees can cause just as much anxiety. There is pressure on the recruiter to find the right candidate with the qualifications for the job and fits in with the rest of the current staff.
The healthcare field has different challenges than other industries as many of the applicants are well qualified with degrees and certifications. Knowing what your company needs and understanding the realities of the jobs are essential for finding the right candidate.
Here are 9 tips for recruiting in the healthcare field:
For a large company, an independent application platform may be necessary, but an external platform is a perfect asset for many small businesses. These targeted websites are often advertised in medical schools and certificate programs for students to find work after they graduate.
Update Your Website:
The information can be as simple as photos showing what the workplace looks like to testimonials from current or former employees, demonstrating how the future employees might fit in.
Use interview questions to assess your candidate's soft skills and determine if they would be an excellent addition to your workforce.
With an imbalance between the benefits and qualifications, you may see a gap in applications. Some will be overqualified for the position and ask for more money, while others will accept the posted rate but have fewer qualifications from your list.
Go the extra mile and provide your employees with resources and unique perks to make their lives outside of work happy and healthy. Examples include gym memberships, mental health care, weekend retreats, etc.
Companies can often find themselves in a bind when someone quits unexpectedly, and others have to cover their responsibilities. If only temporary, this isn't a significant issue, but when higher-level managers choose not to replace that person and require the other employees to cover without further compensation, it can create a downward spiral.
Overworked employees have a higher tendency to quit suddenly, causing more strain on the remaining employees. If that person is not replaced, the strain grows, making more people leave. These spirals can create a toxic work environment that is unwelcome to new employees.
Listen to Current Employees:
A remodeled break room or additional amenities can make an employee feel better at work. This can ripple through the rest of the workforce and solve many issues before they arise.
Hire a Top Tier Recruiter:
A top-tier recruiter will be excellent at reviewing applications to remove those that are not a good fit for the job and hire the right person the first time, rather than replacing the same position multiple times. A qualified recruiter makes for a smoother hiring process overall.
Be Informed to Recruit Great Candidates:
Healthcare workers are under intense pressure, and so are the recruiters who hire them. Do your best to find the right person for the job the first time and eliminate unnecessary turnover. There isn't a right way and a wrong way to find a job, but as a recruiter, you should drive to make the process as easy as possible.
