As a healthcare staffing agency, are you hesitant about partnering with a staffing platform? Don't miss out on the valuable benefits that platforms like Fusion Marketplace can offer. In addition to addressing staffing challenges such as nursing shortages and employee resignations, our platform provides a wealth of resources to offer healthcare staffing agency partners. Here’s why your agency should partner with a staffing platform — or risk being left behind.
In January 2023, SIA reported that a third of all healthcare staffing agencies reported planning to use a staffing platform, a number which has doubled in the past two years.
In addition, staffing agencies found that there was a significant increase in revenue with minimal added expenses.
Staffing firms that utilize an app or platform reported a median revenue increase of 20%, with no reported effects on expenses or staffing volume at the median range, and minimal effects on expenses at the 25th and 75th percentile.

This record participation rate from healthcare staffing agencies means that agencies who choose to partner with a platform like Fusion Marketplace are in excellent company.
More travel nurses and allied healthcare travelers can see your company's posted jobs, apply, and increase your revenue if your assignments are posted with the other agencies who understand the value of timely opportunity.
Achieve more visibility
One benefit of being on a staffing platform is the added visibility a job board can offer your agency. Fusion Marketplace is an affordable option to get more eyes on your job postings, and we work hard to reduce rising acquisition costs and additional fees typically associated with third-party vendors.
Marketplace offers multiple ways for travelers to find your agency including your agency profile, job locations, pay package rates, or job types. Additionally, Marketplace agency partners have the ability to add, delete, and edit recruiter profiles as needed. Agency admins can also download the URL links to their recruiters’ ratings and reviews. Before the reviews are posted, agency admins can also approve or reject reviews, write a response, or dispute a review.
Offer transparency to travelers
Job boards allow travelers to see relevant job information at a glance, which is extremely beneficial for agencies. In fact, the more information you can offer to travelers upfront, the better, if you want to retain talent. Fusion Marketplace lets you add details on:
- Job location
- Job type
- Weekly hours
- Pay package
- Staffing agency
Job transparency on Marketplace means job seekers know exactly what to expect when they apply. This transparency is what will give travelers the extra nudge to apply to your jobs and earn your agency loyalty, rather than decide they don't trust a new face.
Especially amid the great resignation, with the healthcare industry seeing the second highest level of resignations, offering healthcare professionals honesty and full transparency is crucial to avoiding candidate drop off and retaining talent for future assignments.
Access a qualified talent pool
With a staffing platform, you have fast access to high quality candidates that can fill your staffing needs. Fusion Marketplace offers everything from travel nurses to allied health travelers, all in one convenient location. In an oversaturated market, a staffing platform allows you to find high-skilled job seekers.
As you search for high-skilled candidates, those same healthcare professionals are looking for you on Fusion Marketplace. Not only can you more easily find qualified candidates, but you also have the flexibility to filter through and choose the best traveler for the job. Travelers on Marketplace also have customized profiles that house all their qualifications and information, so you can evaluate them quickly and efficiently, all on one platform.
Simplify your processes
Essentially, staffing platforms like Fusion Marketplace take care of a lot of the recruiting and compliance process for you. By bringing job seekers to you, Fusion Marketplace is already cutting down a large portion of your recruiting efforts and helping you combat healthcare staffing issues.
We also go the extra mile to streamline the often complicated compliance process. We understand that having the right credentials and experience is crucial for travelers, and it's equally important for agencies to ensure they are in compliance. That's why our platform allows travelers to easily fill out their information ahead of time, ensuring that it's ready for your review when they apply for a job. With a customized traveler profile, healthcare professionals can upload and share their credentials, work history, experience, referrals, and more, making everyone happy and the compliance process a breeze.
Improve speed to market
As you’re probably well aware, the healthcare staffing shortage is an issue agencies will be addressing for at least the next decade, with a new report showing that 29 states will not be able to keep up with demand for registered nurses even in the next five years, as more than 900,000 are expected to permanently leave their roles. As a result, it’s more important than ever to achieve fast speed to market and fill travel positions in the most needed areas as quickly as possible.
By reducing roadblocks for travelers and agencies alike, Fusion Marketplace helps agencies achieve a faster speed to market. Becoming an agency partner with Fusion Marketplace will not only simplify your recruitment and application process, but you will also be able to make more efficient and timely job placements. Plus, by combining job openings on one platform, travelers can accelerate their job search, which means agencies find talent faster too.
