WOBURN, Mass., Mar. 11, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- HealthcareSource®, the leading provider of talent management solutions for the healthcare industry, today announced the availability of a new strategic resource to help healthcare organizations strengthen their ability to recruit and retain high-quality talent across the continuum of care. The company released the new e-book, A New Way to Look at Healthcare Recruiting, in concert with Healthcare HR Week to provide healthcare leaders with new insights and strategic tools to address one of the primary challenges facing the healthcare industry today: severe labor shortages.
Staffing shortages throughout the healthcare industry are an increasing concern, one that is expected to worsen as both patient volumes and acuity continue to increase due to the growing senior population. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the unemployment rate in healthcare is nearly half that of the already low national average for all jobs, and the number of job openings far exceeds the number of positions filled.
"The labor market is rapidly changing, and the organizations that adapt to the new challenges with a broader, more strategic approach will be the most successful at attracting, hiring, and retaining talent," said HealthcareSource Chief Strategy Officer David Wilkins. "The high competition for healthcare talent forces many organizations to decide between time-to-fill and quality-of-hire when the goal should be to achieve both."
A New Way to Look at Healthcare Recruiting challenges healthcare executives, recruitment teams, and hiring managers to take a broader, more strategic view of the labor challenges and potential solutions, with a goal of reducing time-to-fill without sacrificing quality-of-hire. The e-book features recent data, strategic insights, and tactical recommendations.
Key sections of the e-book include practical advice to help healthcare organizations:
