In today’s modern healthcare industry, human resource (HR) professionals know they must be diligent and tenacious—if they want to fill the growing number of vacancies that plague hospitals, clinics and offices throughout America.
Even before the global health pandemic increased demand on healthcare resources, HR professionals found growth sometimes overwhelming. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics estimated the need for 2.4 million new healthcare workers over the next decade. If you’re struggling to find good employees, you’re not alone.
When it comes to creating healthcare staffing solutions, you may find that you also need to be creative as traditional hiring methods fall short. As demands force overlapping clinical and non-clinical responsibilities more than ever, HR executives should look for ways to encourage employees to grow professionally for the benefit of the company.
The healthcare industry is evolving dramatically with new medical technology, making some training outdated before they are even complete. Telemedicine, wearable monitoring and artificial intelligence (AI) analytics allow medical professionals to help patients in new, effective ways.
Based on the tools your organization provides, you may wish to provide customizable training solutions for employees to be ready on the first day. MedCerts offers healthcare courses that can be designed to help you fill the gaps and build a strong team. Online training helps to prevent the costs of vacancies and unsatisfied patients.
You may be surprised to learn that your best candidates for an open position could already be working for you. Internal training is gaining popularity as demand grows for better trained and experienced healthcare professionals. If you’re concerned about hiring candidates, consider creating an alternative.
Internal training can reduce recruiting costs by identifying a candidate who is already an excellent fit for the role. If all that’s needed is a short-term investment in training, you’ll help healthcare professionals grow in their careers while providing the skills that are needed for your team. It’s a win-win.
MedCerts does more than provide high-quality training to evolving healthcare professionals. We also work with employers around the nation to recruit new talent from a diverse and prepared student population. Imagine having access to the best and brightest, who are ready and excited to excel in new careers.
Students completing online courses through MedCerts are often looking to strengthen their resumes with apprenticeships and internships. A strategic partnership between your company and MedCerts can result in a pool of new hires who have the training and hands-on experience you are looking for.
