Excerpts from the Article:

“Most of the challenges healthcare faces today can be solved by defining the ‘right talent’ for your organization, and using that to guide all of your hiring decisions,” says Jill Schwieters, president of talent solutions provider Cielo Healthcare. “Understanding the best way to utilize your workforce in an efficient and effective way will be critical as the shortages deepen.”

“To operate more efficiently and cost effectively, many organizations are shifting to a team-based model of multidisciplinary staff to coordinate the care of patients. In some cases, this shift has aided in improved communication and care delivery, enhancing the outcomes and satisfaction of patients and their families.”

“By working with talent acquisition experts, organizations gain greater access to both active and passive talent,” says Schwieters. “Great talent comes from many, diverse places today and they want to interact with you in many different ways. An RPO partner will take a candidate-centric approach, providing a variety of avenues for candidates to experience an organization’s brand and to communicate in a way that works for the candidate.”
