Helping Healthcare Organizations Compete for Talent: Find, Retain and Activate

“Labor is the single, largest expense most healthcare operations face, accounting for between 45 and 60 percent of operating costs.”

- PricewaterhouseCoopers

In a highly regulated and growing industry like healthcare, you need to reduce time-consuming activities and focus on what matters: patient care. For hospitals, healthcare networks, outpatient centers and more, the bar continues to rise. Improved top/bottom line performance. Healthcare reform. New compliance regulations. Need for specialized staff.

The good news? Advances in HR technology, best practices that embrace online techniques and other fresh approaches offer opportunities to succeed with these challenges.

Here’s everything you need to build that success plan: finding top talent, onboarding processes, employee engagement, blended learning, social recruiting, and more.

HR professionals may be willing to dip a toe in, implementing basic analytics functions as part of recruiting, applicant tracking, training, and compliance systems. However, data is typically siloed and often provides conflicting information, and the technology that collects it is unwieldy and inflexible. And, even good data is subject to the fact that, per Deloitte, more than 80 percent of HR practitioners score themselves low in their ability to analyze it.
