Catch them young
This is one sure way of attracting future talent. Promote medical education by teaming up with medical or nursing colleges in your area of operation. Contact high schools to get people into the health care field by having them join the courses. Once they complete the programs, you have a ready-made pool of talent to draw from. True you have to invest substantial sums in sponsoring the candidates but that will pay off in the long run when they will help you optimize operations of your health care facility.
Offer high growth potential
Suitable candidates will join your health care facility not because of the short term benefits that you offer such as lucrative salaries, but rather because they believe your facility can provide opportunities for high career growth. Structure training programs that will make them work better as a team. Motivate them to opt for courses that you feel will be beneficial for your facility and assures long term benefits once the employees go through them. You can be sure that you will receive applications from the cream of the crop once word gets around that you provide valuable career enhancing opportunities.
Try unique recruitment processes
Go the digital way and connect with potential job seekers. Even though there are sites exclusively for professionals, you should browse the more socially oriented ones too. When you connect with job seekers on these sites, you come out as an employer who is not only tech savvy but also one who is caring and interested in knowing more about potential employees before hiring them.
Further, you may also tap your current employees to be on the lookout for good candidates. Professionals of the same breed flock together and hence your employees might come across a job seeker who is just right for the specific vacancy in your facility.
Most importantly get the word out in as many ways as possible that you are hiring. However excellent your facility might be, you will never get good talent unless you make it known in the community.
Have exit interviews
Inevitably, there will be employees who leave your facility. Conducting exit interviews with them will give you a fair idea of the flaws in your organization that you should iron out. An employee who has resigned will not be afraid to give you an honest opinion of your health care facility. By paying attention to their point of view you should be able to fix the weak spots.
Follow these guidelines to get the top talent for your health care facility.
