Keys to Health Recruiters Hiring Top Talent in Today's Critical Talent Shortage
The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) pinpoints the healthcare industry as one of the fastest growing sectors of the economy, with 11 of the 20 fastest-growing jobs in the United States. By 2026, BLS projects that we will see 2.4 million new jobs in the healthcare and an industry growth rate of 18%.
What’s behind that surge in demand? There are several contributing factors including an aging population, increased access to health insurance, advances in our ability to treat certain health conditions resulting in more people living longer, and technology advances that require new skill sets.
What matters most when you're choosing a doctor? From the patient's perspective, that's a relatively simple answer. You want someone who knows what they're doing (skill) and who treats you well (culture). Both considerations are important, and either one can make or break your experience.
From a health recruiter's perspective, those same two considerations still carry the most weight. But finding talent with the right qualifications isn't easy. A shrinking supply of qualified talent coupled with increasing demand for key roles has created significant hiring challenges for the healthcare industry, including:
- High turnover due to an increase in opportunities
- Increased needs for talent at all levels
- Lack of qualified candidates available to fill open positions
To overcome these hurdles, hiring managers and health recruiters need a targeted strategy designed to address the unique concerns of healthcare professionals.
