SkillSurvey, Inc., the leading provider of Web 2.0 reference assessment solutions, has announced that Frederick Memorial Hospital (FMH) has joined the company’s client roster. As a subscriber, FMH joins more than 100 SkillSurvey health care clients with such notable leaders as Penn Medicine, Yale-New Haven Hospital, and Brigham and Women’s Hospital.
SkillSurvey solutions enable organizations to improve the quality and suitability of their employee hiring. SkillSurvey’s Pre-Hire 360® supports hiring decisions through an automated process that gathers and reports telling information on job candidates’ behaviors, qualifications, and skills from their managers, peers, subordinates, and business partners. Approved by the candidates, the survey’s electronic format is easy, confidential, and tailored to each job. It elicits powerful feedback because sources are released from legal liability and know that their responses will not be personally identifiable. SkillSurvey recently increased the number of its Pre-Hire 360® assessments that are specific to health care by 175%.
In selecting SkillSurvey, FMH was particularly interested in the Business Intelligence Dashboard™, a component of SkillSurvey’s Pre-Hire 360® enterprise software that helps organizations understand and better manage their sourcing and hiring processes. “The Dashboard will provide greater visibility into how our strategies are working,” comments Donna Hagedorn, Director Employment Services, FMH. “We’re thrilled with the new capability to manage our recruiting and hiring processes for continuous improvement, in particular the ability to see at a glance our current work volumes. And the ability to screen candidates for selected skill sets should speed the hiring process significantly.”
A private, not for profit, 276 bed hospital, FMH is a state-of-the-art healthcare facility with one of the busiest emergency departments in Maryland as well as advanced cardiology and vascular surgical services. FMH also brings the community the latest advances in neonatal intensive care, through a center staffed in partnership with Johns Hopkins University Hospital, as well as in wound care and sleep disorders. The FMH Healthcare System is composed of 20 satellite facilities, including physician practices, immediate care facilities, imaging and rehabilitation centers, and a comprehensive wellness center.
“We are pleased that FMH has chosen SkillSurvey to ensure efficiency and productivity in hiring,” remarks Ray Bixler, CEO, SkillSurvey. “As a hospital designated as an ‘Employer of Choice’ in its region, FMH can expect to continue and multiply its successes in recruiting and retaining staff capable of high quality performance. Ultimately, SkillSurvey will support the organization in achieving far-reaching results in both quality of care and regulatory compliance.”
