Healthcare providers are experts in their fields; they are skilled at providing care. Staffing agencies are experts in their field; they have expertise in filling job openings. Why is this important? What value do staffing agencies bring to healthcare professionals who are looking to fill healthcare job openings?
When a company or organization works with a staffing agency to fill job openings, the company or organization is the customer. Customers expect excellent service, and staffing agencies provide services that rival the best-qualified recruiters and employment specialists.
Filling job openings is never a one-size-fits-all venture. Staffing agencies recognize that each client is different and has unique needs. In healthcare staffing, a client may need to fill various healthcare roles for a few days, a few months, or even permanently. Staffing agencies have the flexibility to provide employees in a wide variety of disciplines to meet all of the needs of the business. The business then has the flexibility to use the services of the temporary staff as needed, whether it is a few hours a week or on a full-time basis.
When employees are out for a short time, it’s important to bring in someone who can hit the ground running. A staffing agency can help with that: temporary employees allow businesses to use staff as needed, such as to cover the vacation or maternity leave of an employee.
Hiring people is about more than just sorting through applications, and staffing agencies understand that. That’s why staffing agencies work hard to cultivate relationships with clients as well as candidates. That relationship can make the difference: a good agency will have a relationship with candidates that makes a difference and causes them to engage with a particular opportunity.
100% JCAHO compliant and pre-screened candidates
When a company or organization hires someone, the only information they may have about the person is what’s gleaned from the resume, interview, and references. However, a staffing agency may have relationships with workers they’ve already identified as dependable, reliable, and conscientious and who can fill a vacancy in a matter of days, or even hours.
Speed and efficiency in placements
When a company or organization has a job opening, the need may be immediate. In some cases, such as when an employee gives sufficient notice of leaving employment, there may be plenty of lead time. However, if an employee quits abruptly or if the job otherwise becomes available suddenly, it’s essential to have speed and efficiency in placement. Fortunately for clients with immediate needs, staffing agencies have become a valuable resource for finding that talent quickly and efficiently.
