The Benefits of Working with a Healthcare Staffing Agency

When it comes to finding a job or attracting good talent in the healthcare sector, one of the best ways to do so is to work with a healthcare staffing agency, like the team from medtigo. If you are worried that a staffing agency isn’t for you, here are some of the primary benefits as well as some tips to help you find the best job or candidates for your business. 

Healthcare Providers:

Here are three great reasons to work with a hospital staffing agency as a healthcare provider!

  1. You’ll Be in a Smaller Pool of Candidates

 One of the best reasons to work with a healthcare staffing agency is that you’ll be in a smaller candidate pool and have a better chance of getting in front of the eyes of the right people. In many cases, since hospitals and other medical facilities receive so many applicants, a hospital staffing agency is almost always used to only show the best candidates from the larger pool.  This gives you a better chance to be seen and ultimately interviewed.

  1. Larger Pool of Opportunities

Great healthcare staffing agencies and recruiters will have many different industry contacts and long-term relationships with businesses, making it a great way to gain an edge on your competition by having a larger pool of job opportunities at your fingertips.

You’ll also gain important insights about your industry from the healthcare staffing agency, like important information about the employer, trends in your field, and changes in the healthcare market overall.  This type of competitive edge could be the difference between an offer letter or a rejection.

  1. Access to Exclusive Jobs

Working with a healthcare recruiter can help you access exclusive jobs that employers haven’t publicly posted yet. This means you can have first dibs on some of today’s most competitive career opportunities before the public does, increasing your chances of success if you’re qualified.

Healthcare Organizations:

As a healthcare organization, the benefits of working with a hospital staffing agency are almost mandatory in this job market.  With the concerns about HCP burnout and staffing shortages, you need the best options available to attract the best talent.

  1. You’ll Be Given only the Best Candidates that met your criteria

A healthcare staffing agency’s primary focus is sourcing and screening candidates. They know which candidates will fit the organization and job position the best.  They will only send you thoroughly vetted and qualified candidates.

Like medtigo, some agencies will also take care of the candidate’s credentialing and licensing needs to ensure that there are no delays in the candidate’s start date.

  1. Understanding Organizational Needs

Hospitals and other healthcare organizations often have longer-term relationships with their healthcare staffing agencies and recruiters.  As such, the staffing agency will begin to understand what type of candidate will work in the organization’s work environment and system. This type of relationship goes beyond just making sure the candidate is qualified.

  1. You’ll Have Options

With a full-service healthcare staffing agency, you’ll have a full range of options regarding your staffing needs.  Whether you have permanent positions or gap staffing (locum tenens) positions to fill, having a single staffing agency that knows your organization and ensures the coverage of shifts is invaluable. One additional option to consider is whether the staffing agency will handle the credentialing and licensing of the HCPs.  This option could free up resources in your administration and help reduce your overall operating cost. When choosing a staffing agency partner, be sure to ask about the different options available to you.
