More than half of the top 10 fastest growing job fields in America are in healthcare, according to the recent Money magazine article, “Best Jobs in America.” In response to this growing need for healthcare professionals, Jobscience, the no. 1 healthcare provider of web-based human resource automation software to hospitals, is releasing the results from its most recent industry study of the techniques and strategies used by more than 5,000 HR professionals entitled “Healthcare Recruiting and Hiring Best Practices 2006.

Physician’s assistant is the fastest growing field (49.65% job growth in 2005) in the U.S. with physical therapist’s assistants (44.2%) and physical therapist (36.74%) close behind, as reported by Money magazine online in their recent report. These extraordinary job growth rates are raising the stakes of competition for hospitals as they compete for the best talent, and yet hospitals are hesitant to use best practice methods to find the best employees. For example, less than one-third of hospitals actively recruit from competitors according to Jobscience’s recent report. To help recruiters and HR professionals realize the best practices of their industry, Jobscience’s recent report focuses on HR issues in healthcare, such as:

  •      2006 recruiting outlook;
  •     Top sources for quality candidates;
  •     Building a competitive workforce; and
  •     Best practices in recruiting and hiring in healthcare.

These issues and more will be addressed in “Healthcare Recruiting and Hiring Best Practices 2006,” a series of reports which debuts in Q2, 2006. Each quarterly installment will include valuable results from surveys sent to over 5,000 healthcare professionals as well as analysis from Jobscience’s leading experts on healthcare recruiting and hiring.

“Nobody has greater knowledge of recruiting best practices in healthcare than Jobscience,” said Ted Elliott, CEO and founder. “There is a science to recruiting, and this series describes how healthcare human resource professionals can achieve their most critical objective: hiring top-quality talent that fits the job.”

The “Healthcare Recruiting and Hiring Best Practices 2006” series will include such topics as:

  •     Q2 Healthcare Recruiting and Hiring Best Practices 2006: War for Talent Update
