Today’s labor market has created a lot of difficulties for healthcare organizations trying to add nurses to their teams. The challenges range from identifying, reaching, attracting, and negotiating with them to join your organization. Each of these challenges, particularly in today’s landscape, requires time to solve.
When you are busy operating your facility, time is not something you have in great quantity. Subsequently, the result is for most organizations is to outsource recruitment efforts. Nevertheless, it’s vital to find a staffing firm that understands the unique and difficult challenges your facility faces.
Here are three advantages to partnering with a specialized nursing staffing firm:
1. Access to Top Talent
The Great Resignation, coupled with the unemployment rate at a historical low, most candidates are passive. Passive candidates are not actively seeking a new opportunity but can be open to hearing about new opportunities. These candidates are often the ideal applicant for your role, however, because they are passive, they will never apply. An industry-focused firm can gain access to that top talent.
A staffing agency that specializes in the healthcare industry has relationships, and a database, with an abundant network of possible candidates. In addition, they have expert Recruiters that maintain relationships with these nurses and know their skills and experience. They can quickly engage with prospective candidates to highlight your opportunities. In addition, skilled Recruiters know where to look and how to find other passive candidates that they don’t speak with regularly.
2. Industry Expertise
The healthcare industry is vast. Another benefit of partnering with a search firm that works exclusively within the nursing space is that their industry expertise makes them keenly aware of the unique challenges your organization faces.
Specialized recruiters spend their days speaking with nurses. Through these conversations, they absorb a great deal of industry knowledge. These recruiters know how to speak the language of the healthcare world and understand the precise career paths within each specialty area of the industry. Their industry expertise enables them to present you with a more robust panel of candidates to fill your needs faster.
