How a Large Hospital and Health System is Leveraging an RPO Partner to Overcome the Biggest Challenges in Healthcare Talent Acquisition

Wednesday, October 28, 2020 • 2:00 PM – 3:00 PM (EDT)

Talent acquisition leaders in the healthcare industry are thinking about how to plan for the unknown staffing needs that this fall and the coming year will bring.

The healthcare industry has seen massive changes over the past decade, including growing shortages of the RN (and other specialty) talent pool that continues to deepen. Nothing could have prepared us for what we are seeing today amid Covid. With the number of health care jobs increasing and expected to grow nearly 12% between now and 2028 (according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) projections – nearly double the projected rate for all other occupations), combined with the uncertainty around the healthcare services that will be in demand over the next year, and a talent shortage that has been exacerbated by the pandemic, it’s important for leaders in the healthcare space to understand that your internal talent acquisition team can’t and shouldn’t be expected to do it all. Given the current situation, the benefits of outsourcing specific talent acquisition functions to decrease costs, enhance quality of hires, speed-to-hire and have access to the latest technological advances in recruitment, means this is a great time for healthcare leaders to consider the recruitment options available to you.

Bob Hanley, University of Chicago Medicine’s SVP & Chief Human Resources Officer, will share how his healthcare facility identified gaps in their talent acquisition program, how they viewed RPO as a solution prior to working with Hueman, and why they ultimately selected an RPO partner to support their recruitment needs.

  • In times of uncertainty, the ability to scale recruitment is extremely beneficial; learn how an RPO can be a significant advantage for your organization both in good economic times and in times of crisis or uncertainty
  • Examine the current talent acquisition landscape and how you can plan and prepare now for any gaps you might have in your recruitment ecosystem
  • Learn how to evaluate and enhance your candidate experience ahead of anticipated hiring needs
