What Questions Should I Ask a Prospective Healthcare Staffing Agency?
When it comes to hiring highly qualified medical practitioners, competition can be tough, and the openings are often time sensitive. In an era where patients have become consumers of healthcare, they’ll quickly find another medical practice or hospital if you do not have providers in place to serve them.
A healthcare staffing agency is a specialized recruitment firm that works in the healthcare realm to help medical facilities ensure seamless coverage of patient care. This type of organization can help practices and hospitals save time and money because they already have access to a broader network of quality candidates who can fill the vacant gaps.
When evaluating options, it’s important to ask the right questions to a prospective medical recruiting firm because the company will serve as your partner and affect your success. Here are four questions you may want to ask.
What are your areas of expertise?
There are many specialty areas in medicine. Make sure that they recruit for positions that you need.
How far is your reach?
Staffing firms can work in a wide range of states or regions. Find out which areas they serve and if it fits your needs.
What is the average amount of time it takes to fill a request?
The average amount of time to fill an opening depends on a variety of factors such as the type of position, area of specialty or location of the position. A recruiter should still be able to provide a ballpark range.
Can you provide references?
Successful recruiters will have happy clients. Ask for references so you can get another perspective on how they work.
