SAN FRANCISCO, CA (PRWEB) May 23, 2006
According to a research report by Jobscience, top talent in the healthcare industry is hard to come by and even harder to retain in this competitive hiring market. Hospitals cannot afford to continue operating without giving more serious consideration to recruiting, hiring, and retaining top talent, and then addressing it as a primary improvement initiative for the hospital as a whole.
These and other key findings can be found in the research report, “Healthcare Recruiting Best Practices 2006”, now available through Jobscience. The other key findings include:
- The top concern reported by hospital HR professionals is recruiting quality employees (80%)
- More than 50 percent of HR professionals are dissatisfied with current recruiting processes
- Best practices in recruiting and staffing are not consistently implemented (less than 50%)
For trends, solutions, and recommendations to these key issues download the white paper “Healthcare Recruiting Best Practices 2006.”
“In order to deal with the concerns of hiring and retaining top employees, you must first start by addressing the HR staff needs such as strategic investments in the technologies and best practices available,” Ted Elliott, CEO of Jobscience, said.
HR professionals must take a practical role in the strategic management of their institutions, proving the value of HR to high-level administrators. Talent is the differentiator between industry-leading organizations and the rest, and the best practices for recruiting, hiring, and retaining that talent is constantly changing. Once HR professionals proactively manage that talent and increase staffing effectiveness, they will become valued members of their hospital’s strategic management. The “Healthcare Recruiting Best Practices 2006” report from Jobscience offers industry leader’s insight and practical advice for HR professionals interested in accomplishing these objectives.
The hiring market is changing, not only on the availability of qualified staff, but also in how those staff members apply for positions. Successful HR professionals must be continually aware of their location and the methods of their search to find the top talent. These methods are constantly changing and it is up to the HR professionals to educate themselves with the new processes available.
