How HealthcareSource Can Help with Employee Management

Even the best hospitals with the best recruiters encounter time-to-fill challenges. The average time-to-fill for a bedside RN, for example, is 54 days. Top performing healthcare recruitment teams shave that down to 34 days, while others take upwards of 91 — or eventually give up — letting overtime and staffing agencies be the norm.

Your time-to-fill challenge is not just about hiring, but also about hiring to keep. Failing to take a strategic approach to talent management overall, including a key focus on retention during the selection and hiring process, puts you in a vicious cycle: long-open reqs overburdening employees leads to more turnover, quality shortcuts when filling the role, then more turnover, and so on.

Chances are, your time-to-fill problem is characterized by these underlying conditions:

  • A lack of recruitment data and skillsets
  • Organizational challenges, process, and workflow issues
  • The absence of key technology to support modern recruiting methods
Did you know?
  • Time-to-fill increased 11 days, on average, from 2016 and 2017. The right tech and processes can help.
  • Hard-to-fill roles take an additional 21 hours to source. Shorten that time with talent pipelines.
  • Healthcare recruiters carry 49% more reqs than they should. The tools they use make a major impact.

Your Time-to-Fill Treatment Plan

The remedy for your time-to-fill challenge relies on one or more of these key focus areas.

Data & Benchmarks

The Issues:

  • What is the true measure for recruiting success? No one really knows what good looks like.
  • With so many open reqs and tactics, it is hard to know which strategies and campaigns are working.
  • Hiring should be based on more than a hunch.

The HealthcareSource Way:

While many hospitals look at success as filling empty seats when it comes to their recruitment efforts, at HealthcareSource, we know that quality-of-hire, retention, and tenure tell the full story of how talent acquisition helps improve the organization. We also know that recruiting is both art and science. We give you the tools you need to know what tactics are working and even to predict a candidate’s performance, so you can improve your time-to-fill.

People & Skillsets

The Issues:

  • The recruitment space is so competitive, and things are changing so fast, that it is practically impossible for recruiters to keep up.
  • On average, healthcare recruiters are carrying a 49% higher workload than they should be.

The HealthcareSource Way:

Healthcare organizations will only be able to decrease time-to-fill without sacrificing quality care by moving from reactively filling roles to proactively sourcing quality talent. Your recruitment team needs to dedicate time — or maybe even people — to sourcing. This will help you staff the organization for both today’s and tomorrow’s needs. To do this effectively, you need to be sure your team has the right skills and is set up for efficiency.

Process

The Issues:

  • The average time to source for a typical role is 7+ hours — a number that balloons to 21+ hours for hard-to-fill positions.

  • The strategies you’re using now aren’t helping you find the elusive talent you need.

The HealthcareSource Way:

At HealthcareSource, we realize that even the best of recruiters can fail if the right processes aren’t in place to support them. You can improve your time-to-fill even on the hardest-to-fill positions by optimizing your process and workflows, and integrating modern techniques for sourcing the right candidates.
