Quality-of-Hire for Hospitals & Providers
The healthcare industry is now the largest employer in the U.S., and as it continues to grow, talent managers are finding it difficult to maintain a high quality-of-hire. Organizations that struggle with quality-of-hire also tend to have lower employee engagement and higher turnover rates. The significance of this problem is only amplified by the fact that it’s occurring within healthcare, where, subsequently, the quality of care patients receive suffers.
According to new research by Advisory Board, 20 percent of healthcare workers report feeling ambivalent or disengaged with their work. Hospitals are also dealing with an average turnover rate of about 30 percent in an employee’s first year.
If this sounds familiar, chances are your quality-of-hire issues are caused by one or more of these underlying issues:
- Your talent pool is too small
- You’re not attracting high-quality talent
- When you do attract high-quality applicants, you can’t convert them
- An inability to quickly train and fill the skills gaps of near-perfect fits
- You’re relying too heavily on hiring externally, rather than promoting internally
