Having worked with clients in both hospitals and long-term care, we find that outside critical issues, organizations seem to get bogged down in non-recruitment processes rather than on results-focused activities.
Common Causes for a Sluggish Recruitment Effort
- Wearing too many hats rather than just the recruitment one.
- Performing too many administrative tasks such as setting up background checks, ordering drug screens, and checking licensure.
- Making two or more calls to obtain references for potential hires—getting references, by the way, is getting hard and hard as companies are less willing to release employment data.
- Processing applications of job seekers.
Boost your recruiting efforts by focusing on what matters most – Results!
- Monitor fixed turnover costs: sign-on bonuses, training time by trainers, training materials
- Reduce premium labor costs: turnover can increase overtime, per diem shifts, or traveler usage
- Track recruiting time: make a list of hours spent by everyone that is involved in the recruiting process (screening, interviewing, due diligence, on-boarding, training,) placing dollars in those hours.
- Calculate cost per hire: determine your total current cost per hire compared to potential investments.
- Analyze data collected on a routine basis.
So how do you incorporate these measures into you recruitment processes?. Look at what you are doing now and ask the pertinent question. Does your recruitment need a shot of B12?
