Hospitals, urgent care facilities, medical clinics, and doctor’s offices all share the same pressing need: finding qualified employees.
In this respect, they are in a similar boat with any other business. Finding good workers has always been a challenge for businesses and organizations. However, with all due respect to commercial enterprises, having qualified - and quality - employees in the medical field is essential.
No one wants to be treated by a less-than-qualified medical personnel, and no medical facility of any kind would willingly or knowingly hire an unqualified medical employee.
So, the burden of recruiting, vetting, and then hiring qualified employees for hospitals, clinics, and other medical facilities falls on doctors, practice managers, or hospital HR professionals.
And they are all overworked, understaffed, and barely keeping up!
The Benefits of Using a Healthcare Staffing Firm
There are several benefits that come from partnering with a healthcare staffing firm like Interim HealthCare. One of the most significant benefits of using a healthcare staffing agency is its primary function of finding and vetting quality candidates.
This is difficult for practice managers, doctors, hospital and clinic hiring teams, and hospital HR departments. Because these individuals all have other responsibilities that take higher priority, especially in light of the COVID-19 health crisis, it tends to keep them otherwise occupied with less free time to focus on hiring.
A reliable and reputable healthcare staffing firm only has the task of finding you the best candidates.
1. Ability to Vet Candidates
Unlike most hiring managers at hospitals, clinics, or medical offices, a medical staffing agency can access far more details of a potential employee’s work history. Firms like Interim HealthCare have the tools needed to ensure that any relevant information is accessible for making our determinations.
2. Quality Candidates
Candidates from a staffing firm have gone through strict assessments to ensure that only quality candidates are provided for healthcare organizations looking to hire. This extensive vetting process means you will be guaranteed to have only qualified candidates to choose from.
Just trying to determine where and how to identify good candidates can be overwhelming. A quality staffing firm has access to a wide selection of candidates, which will help to ensure that you find an applicant who meets all your needs in one place.
3. Broader Selection
4. Specialized Expertise
Staffing agencies have the tools and expertise to effectively find and communicate with potential hires. For firms like Interim HealthCare, this is our specialty. You can leverage those assets to help find the right employee.
5. Less Time
A staffing agency can generate candidate shortlists faster so that you and your team can focus on interviews quicker and choose qualified candidates sooner. Working with a staffing firm saves you time before, during, and after the hiring process.
6. Reduced Stress
The medical field is already overburdened and stressful. Recruiting, vetting, and interviewing job candidates is a stressful process. Having a staffing firm manage the recruiting and vetting of good candidates, means less stress for you and your team, which means smoother review and selection process.
7. Local Expertise
When you work with a local staffing firm like Interim HealthCare, you are also getting the in-depth knowledge and experience that comes with being local. We are familiar with the medical needs of Sonoma County and have our “finger on the pulse” when it comes to staffing needs, availability, and other related issues.
In the not-so-distant past in Sonoma County, it wasn’t considered necessary for a medical facility to work with a healthcare staffing firm. For the most part, it was relatively easy to find qualified nurses and clinicians in the local area, even for facilities not that weren’t located in Santa Rosa or Petaluma, for example.
But times have changed.
Today, with the healthcare job market having become more competitive and the pressing need to fill staffing gaps and vacancies in light of the coronavirus and other issues, the benefits of healthcare staffing agencies are all the more valuable.
