Quality talent — whether per diem, travel, locum tenum, or otherwise — is hard to come by, but the ability to effectively attract, retain, and place these workers is at the heart of any successful healthcare staffing agency.

To attract top talent, healthcare staffing agencies need to provide an exceptional candidate experience. Managing the logistics alone is complex and daunting. Agencies need to tackle a number of important issues, from identifying shift availability, to time reporting and navigating multiple states' tax codes for payroll.

If you’re experiencing challenges in managing or optimizing your candidate experience, chances are it’s caused by one of these underlying issues:

  • Lack of a mobile work portal
  • Shift scheduling and availability reporting is manual and inefficient
  • Time reporting is complicated and frustrating
  • You’re unable to provide pay flexibility, such as same-day pay
Did you know?
  • Healthcare practitioner and healthcare support roles are projected to grow by 15% and 23%, respectively, between 2016 and 2026.

Your Candidate Experience Treatment Plan

Your ability to remedy your per diem and travel work experience challenge relies on one or more of these key areas of focus below.

Data & Benchmarks

The Issues:

  • We don’t have easy insight into our per diem workers’ shift schedules or availability.
  • We have no way of using the past experiences we’ve tracked on our per diem workers, to quickly inform their next placement.

The HealthcareSource Way:

A key aspect of providing a superior per diem and travel work experience is the ability to make placements feel seamless for talent. This means making shift scheduling and reporting availability as easy as opening an app on your smartphone, and making talent matching as obvious as a ratings and review system. At HealthcareSource, we give you the tools and resources to do just that.

People & Skillsets

The Issue:

  • We struggle to make quality placements quickly and seamlessly, leading to a fragmented and less-than-optimal experience for our talent.

The HealthcareSource Way:

Healthcare staffing is about people, and making quality placements is about getting the right people, for the right jobs, in the right environment, at the right time. It’s no easy task, but when recruiters can easily share their knowledge across teams, it becomes that much easier. At HealthcareSource, we believe that the wisdom of the crowd can be greater than that of the individual. That’s why we give you the tools you need to rate and review talent and leverage your colleagues’ insights for better matches.

Process

The Issues:

  • We have no way easy way of collaborating with talent to understand shift schedule or availability.
  • Our back office is unable to handle the pay flexibility our talent demands, such as same-day pay.

The HealthcareSource Way:

A worker’s experience has a lot to do with your agency’s process, and if you’re running inefficient processes at your healthcare staffing agency, then chances are you’re also providing a poor per diem and travel work experience. At HealthcareSource we believe that well-integrated systems, tailored specifically to the healthcare staffing space, help agencies like yours trim their processes and drive a better per diem and travel work experience.

Technology

The Issues:

  • We have difficulty tracking our per diem staff’s credentials, making it hard to understand which roles they’re eligible for.
  • New per diem talent miss out on opportunities, because competency validation takes too long to complete.
  • We have no way easy way to collaborate with talent to understand shift schedule or availability.
  • Our back office is unable to handle the pay flexibility our talent demands, such as same-day pay.

The HealthcareSource Way:

HealthcareSource knows that technology should be making your work easier and less cumbersome so it can help improve your per diem and travel work experience, rather than subtract from it. That is why we offer an integrated platform solution tailored specifically to providing an industry-leading experience for your talent.
