Finding quality health care professionals is a top priority for recruiters, but in today's difficult recruiting market, forging meaningful connections with tomorrow's health care practitioners through traditional means can be difficult or costly.
Today, Work4 announces a partnership with NAHCR, the National Association for Health Care Recruitment, in order to provide solutions for innovative recruitment of health care professionals through Facebook and other social media. With 3.1 million health care professionals using Facebook for both personal and professional networking and 11.8 million Facebook users who "like" or list employment at a health care organization,* this partnership will open the door for healthcare organizations to source and recruit top talent on the world's largest social network.
"This partnership presents health care recruiters with the chance to reach a segment of the professional population they may not have been able to access before," said NAHCR President Terry Bennett, RN, BSN, CHCR. "Social media is rapidly expanding as a not only viable, but also a necessary means for connecting with potential candidates, and we look forward to giving our members the opportunity to leverage Facebook to source and hire their next health care employees."
"Across every vertical, today's candidates have Facebook profiles, and they're connecting with companies even on this platform that was once associated primarily with personal networking," said Work4's VP of Partnerships, Brian Louie.
Despite the overall trends in U.S. unemployment, health care remains an industry with rapid growth and a continual need for qualified candidates. In order to meet the demand and enable employers to connect with top talent on the network where they spend the most time, this partnership will allow NAHCR members to access Work4's all-in-one Social, Mobile, and Recruiting Ads solutions for Facebook.
"This partnership between Work4 and NAHCR is directly in line with Work4's vision of connecting organizations and candidates wherever they are," said Louie. "We're proud to offer a solution for health care recruiting that will potentially affect the lives—and the health—of millions of people around the world."
