Senior living organizations seldom have recruitment teams. When they do, recruiters are normally focused on finding executive leadership talent, or even new salespeople, rather than mid- or entry-level roles. 

The majority of senior living hires are processed and managed by the hiring manager directly or by an office manager. In either case, the person overseeing this work is typically not someone with any recruiting or HR experience. In these situations, you need a solution that incorporates recruiting and HR best practices, while also making the entire process as easy and as templated as possible for the non-HR, non-recruiter user. The more automation and simple tools that can guide these managers, the better. In other words, you need hiring in a box.

Did you know?
  • 53% of senior care providers cite “insufficient numbers of quality applicants” as their No. 1 hiring problem.
  • 3 job categories with the largest projected growth over the next eight years: healthcare support, personal care and service, and healthcare practitioners and technical.

Your Hiring Manager Skillsets Treatment Plan

The remedy for your hiring manager skillset challenge relies on one or more of these key focus areas.

Data & Benchmarks

The Issues:

  • No one really knows what good looks like for hiring.
  • When we do identify key performance indicators, we have no way to accurately measure them.

The HealthcareSource Way:

Managers in senior living facilities have a lot on their plates, including hiring for their own departments. At HealthcareSource, we believe that leveraging data eliminates a lot of the guesswork and contributes to quality-of-hire, while making the hiring process easier for managers. We can help you see what good hiring looks like with real data, and help you integrate that data into your hiring decisions.

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.
  • Hiring managers are experts in their fields, but not necessarily in recruitment.

The HealthcareSource Way:

If you are a larger senior living organization with recruiters, recruiter training can help you improve and optimize your hiring efforts. If most of your hiring falls on managers’ shoulders, however, success won’t come from training alone. You need to empower them with automation and an easy-to-use process that we think of as hiring in a box. Enable your hiring managers with interview guidance powered by behavioral science to predict future performance, and automated reference checking.

How We Help:

No colleges offer a bachelor’s degree in recruiting, but our robust, structured certification program, led by industry expert and innovator David Szary, educates recruiters of all levels, ensuring they have a toolkit for success. Learn more »

Process

The Issues:

  • Hiring is cumbersome and we can’t automate repeatable steps that take up the most time.
  • Managers need tools that guide them towards well-informed hiring decisions.

The HealthcareSource Way:

A flexible, easy-to-use process is what managers need to quickly and successfully meet their recruiting responsibilities. At HealthcareSource, we realize you need a best-in-class solution that will help you meet the full range of your hiring needs, from scarce, highly skilled labor, to high-volume, low-skill talent. Both necessitate automating as many of the repeatable steps of the hiring process as possible, including job distribution and reference checking.

  • Process automation is key to managers’ success in the role of hiring.
