Wayne, PA (PRWEB) October 21, 2009
SkillSurvey, Inc. announced today that Main Line Health is the latest healthcare facility to subscribe to SkillSurvey's automated systems for assessing and tracking job candidates. The organization has licensed both Pre-Hire 360® and Passive Candidate Compiler™ in its drive to incorporate established best practices into its Human Resources function.
With approximately 11,000 employees, Main Line Health is one of the largest employers in Southeastern Pennsylvania. The network of hospitals, rehabilitation centers, and outpatient care sites includes four of the region's most respected acute care hospitals: Lankenau, Bryn Mawr, Paoli, and Riddle Memorial. All facilities will depend upon SkillSurvey's tools to improve the insights with which they can make hiring decisions and thus maintain their high standard of care.
Last year, Main Line Health earned several distinctions. ModernHealthcare.com ranked it 11th out of 238 participating organizations as one of the best places to work in healthcare. Philadelphia Magazine placed 28 of the system's physicians on its "Top Doctors" list. And, Hospitals & Health Networks named it one of the top "100 Most Wired Hospitals and Health Systems."
Jean Kozicki, Director of Recruitment at Main Line Health, sees a connection between her organization's leadership and its adoption of SkillSurvey's tools. "We're always on the lookout for ways to improve the quality of our care and of our patients' experience," she offered. "For us, it all starts with the caliber of our hires, and its clear that SKillSurvey's Pre-Hire 360® solution will enable us to screen for candidates that meet our selective criteria. We expect to see immediate benefits."
SkillSurvey's Pre-Hire 360® assessment directs references to rate candidates on the very behaviors that have been validated to be predictive of success in specific job categories--all automatically, via e-mail. References can then express their interest in learning of future openings themselves by opting into SkillSurvey's Passive Candidate Compiler™ database. The two tools work together to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of the recruitment function, ultimately strengthening a company's talent base.
"Healthcare providers achieve a competitive advantage by providing greater levels of patient satisfaction," explained Ray Bixler, CEO, SkillSurvey. "And that comes from employees who possess a unique combination of technical expertise as well as service orientation behaviors. Our assessment solution allows employers to make sure that their new hires at every level of the organization have the service orientation required to set them apart."
SkillSurvey serves hundreds of clients representing more than half a million candidates or reference providers in over 100 countries. In the last year alone, over 300,000 professionals experienced SkillSurvey Pre-Hire 360®. In addition, the SkillSurvey Passive Candidate Compiler™ has over 500,000 active names within the community for clients to use for proactive sourcing of candidates.
SkillSurvey is the leading provider of online reference assessment solutions that increase quality of hire and improve recruiting efficiency. Using SkillSurvey, organizations improve the quantity and quality of information they collect regarding a candidate's past work performance, providing better information to recruiters and hiring managers as they make decisions on new hires. SkillSurvey also significantly reduces time and money spent on reference checking. This breakthrough, patent-pending approach to reference assessments is based on over 25 years of research in job competency modeling. More information is available at http://www.skillsurvey.com.
