If your practice is planning to engage a recruiting service, you might be in a quandary about what type of firm is the best option. For example, should you contact a local firm in Houston, or go with a larger firm that has a national reach?

When making such a decision, you should keep in mind that a local firm has several distinct advantages over a national company. Here are a few:

  1. A local firm knows the business terrain. A local healthcare recruiting service knows what the local market is like. A local company knows if there is a demand for certain types of positions and what the supply of candidates for your opportunities is like. A local firm has its finger on the healthcare pulse of the area and what the workforce demand and supply situation is like.
  2. A local firm knows the talent pool. A local firm has better knowledge of the people who are available in a certain field. Since they recruit locally, odds are they also would have a larger pool of area professionals than a national firm. They know what local practices are looking for regarding qualifications and experience and so would better be able to provide healthcare professionals who have them.
  3. A local firm gives you more personalized service. With a national firm, you are just another client for which the firm recruits. However, a local staffing company will take the time to get to know you and what your needs are. A local firm will work with you more closely.
  4. Local recruiters can offer more flexibility. Because it can work with you more closely, a local healthcare staffing company can better determine what your needs are and offer services that suit your particular practice and workforce. Also, using local people is likely to cost less because you won’t have to factor in the added expense of bringing someone in from out of state.
  5. By using a local staffing service, you help the local economy. Using businesses in your region helps the local economy grow. It spurs development, which helps everyone in the area.
