Your healthcare practice may be experiencing problems finding the people it needs. You have a hiring process in place, but it doesn’t always work as smoothly as you would like. On the whole, your recruiting efforts don’t seem to be getting the job done. Is it time to get some outside help? Here are a few signs that you should seriously think about hiring a recruiting agency.

Your in-house recruiters don’t use the latest technology.

When you have to move quickly to land top talent, using the latest technology will help streamline the process and make it more effective. If you don’t have an applicant tracking system, a social media presence, or are not proactively looking at other new technologies such as video interviewing, your company is a rowboat in a race with speedboats.

Recruiting needs to be viewed as any other business practice, with adequate resources devoted to it, and a mindset that values continued improvement and top-notch performance.

Your employees do not get along.

The reason for this could be problems in the hiring process, where recruiters are not paying enough attention to candidates’ personalities, character and values. In other words, they are not finding the people with the right fit for your practice, people who value teamwork.

You have a high turnover rate.

If you are continually losing people, the problem may lie with the recruiting process. Employees leave for a variety of reasons, but sometimes it is because of a mismatch between the person’s personality, skills and/or the job itself.

Your hiring process takes too long.

This problem can cost your practice a lot of top talent. The most highly sought-after people will be hired relatively quickly, so your company will miss out on the chance to get the top talent. Some human resource specialists estimate that the top 10 percent of candidates are hired within the first 10 days that they are on the market.

And if you do manage to make an offer to a standout candidate, you will more often than not end up competing with other healthcare organizations to get the person, forcing you into a bidding war.
