Healthcare industry staffing: A pulse check

November 7, 2017

Velocity Resource Group has the expertise to help companies from myriad sectors acquire the talent they need. Healthcare is one of the industries VRG is proud to serve. From physicians to nurses, and many other healthcare related roles, VRG has the capacity to quickly source highly qualified candidates so that varying healthcare services are effective and efficient.

Currently, there are challenges with recruiting and retaining healthcare personnel to staff facilities like the VA. A recent report by the Government Accountability Office (GAO) found that the Veterans Health Administration (VHA) lacks complete data regarding the number of physicians who provide care in VA centers. A system to evaluate its recruitment and retention practices needs to be established. Still, with their proprietary process and ability to create candidate pipelines, VRG has successfully placed candidates at VA hospitals. VRG’s proprietary process enables them to source candidates with a broad spectrum of skills sets. Placing candidates in highly specialized healthcare related roles is but one of the solutions VRG offers. And, talent acquisition work with this sort of specificity is still done with speedy turnaround—as in overnight.

A report released by the Association of American Medical Colleges in February of this year found that, by 2030, there will be a physician shortage ranging from 40,800 to 104, 900. VRG’s Brett Zingler acknowledged that “healthcare recruiting can be difficult because of the huge gap in supply and demand.” He believes organizations within the healthcare industry stand to benefit from partnering with VRG: “Our model is a great complement to their current practices.” The RNnetwork also released a report in which many of those surveyed reported considering leaving the field. Obviously, due to these projections and concerns, recruiting in the healthcare industry calls for creativity and a hands-on approach—both things VRG offers.

VRG’s success in healthcare industry staffing is so respected that even AMN Healthcare, an organization with decades of experience staffing a variety of healthcare jobs, partnered with VRG to source fresh, qualified candidates within tight time constraints. In the end, VRG saved AMN thousands in search firm fees, provided a candidate pipeline, and laid the foundation for a relationship that is six-years-strong and counting. VRG has successful partnerships with the Mayo Clinic, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, UCLA Health, and other healthcare organizations.

The team at Velocity Resource Group is prepared to help healthcare organizations of all sizes fulfill their talent acquisition needs. While they have relationships with large hospitals, they are able to work with organizations of all sizes. Bedside manner is one of the most important aspects of good healthcare, and VRG believes in the power of the human experience in the recruiting process. While technology helps the team at VRG to expediently find talent sourcing solutions, technology never replaces their relational approach. Start the talent acquisition conversation with VRG because, no matter how challenging you perceive your staffing needs to be, VRG has the expertise, networks, and approaches to provide solutions.
