Healthcare market changes like decreasing travel rates and contract cancellations have healthcare travelers confused and frustrated. Travel life looks different today than it did during the peak of the COVID-19 pandemic and helping travelers understand this change is key to successful recruiting efforts. Here’s how recruiters can effectively guide healthcare travelers through this transition in the market.
Healthcare recruitment is more challenging than ever with monumental staffing shortages in healthcare. Workforce data shows an increased demand for 1.1 million new registered nurses to replace retirees, as well as 18 percent of healthcare workers who have quit since the pandemic began. Identifying and strategizing ways to tackle recruitment challenges in the healthcare industry is the first step to achieving appropriate staffing. Here’s our overview of the obstacles facing healthcare agencies and recruiters as well as our tips for how to stay ahead of them.
The healthcare industry is growing tremendously, with the US Bureau of Labor Statistics predicting 194,500 average annual openings for registered nurses between 2020 and 2030 and a 9 percent growth rate projected for employment. With that job market growth comes incredible opportunities for healthcare travelers and having a great relationship with your healthcare recruiter is key to landing the best travel assignments. Here’s our insight for building a strong relationship with healthcare recruiters.
Finding talent in this modern world can present many challenges for employers. Especially for those in the healthcare industry, like staffing agencies and healthcare facilities. While the U.S. continues to face a shortage in healthcare professionals—nurses, lab workers, therapy workers, and more—healthcare recruiting is becoming more and more difficult and costly for employers to keep up with.
Wouldn’t it be nice if you could see into the minds of your healthcare travelers? Or at least some way of knowing what they want from your healthcare staffing agency. Think about what you could do with an inside scoop on what travelers look for in a recruiter—no surprises, just enhanced transparency.
