Stay Prepared!

As a Workday Certified Solution Partner, we value the opportunity to consistently update our integration and partnership. Part of that is preparation and staying in constant communication with Workday while remaining agile as product updates & messaging come our way.

One of my favorite quotes from David Duffield, Co-founder /Co-CEO Workday is,
“I’m sort of a foot-on-the-gas kind of guy.”

We’ve noticed and we are happy for the ride!

The Power of Partnerships

I’ve been able to see first hand the power of partnerships over the last several years while working for and with HR Tech companies. Establishing and maintaining partnership relationships has developed some lasting friendships and superior allies in a space many of us love. Our partnership with Workday is no different. The Dovetail team works closely with Workday to ensure that the needs of clients are consistently met with the quality those clients have come to expect.

Two years in the making and now two years in, Dovetail maintains our Certified Solution Partner status

Crisis Mode is Nothing New to Healthcare HR

Looking at the current challenges Healthcare HR is facing, one can ascertain that while things have shifted slightly, the crises faced are not all that new.

In continuing my conversation with Dan White, we discuss the all too familiar issues and provide some ideas and solutions on what to watch for and how to possibly prevent falling further into the deep end. There is great opportunity today, for Healthcare HR professionals, to make the necessary changes to benefit their departments and ultimately their organization’s employees.

“Healthcare HR has been in crisis mode. This is nothing new to them.” – Dan White, President of Workforce Solutions at AMN Healthcare

Not Much Has Changed

When I first started recruiting in healthcare fifteen plus years ago, it seemed like all that was talked about was the nursing shortage. The conversation is ongoing and, sadly, hasn’t changed much. This Healthcare HR trending topic is addressed by many – the topic is addressed – but, not the issue.

Employee Engagement > Retention

For many years, we have been talking about how employer branding and employee engagement leads to the retention of quality talent.

“The talent shortage isn’t going to go away any time soon, but just like any other industry, healthcare can look to leverage partners to assist with systems and best practices to attract the kind of people you need..” – Dan White, President of Workforce Solutions at AMN Healthcare

Why I Care

My first “HR” job, if you will, was as a sourcer for a healthcare-specific executive search firm. This job changed my life. No, seriously. Several things happened.

I fell in love with recruiting, every part of it — EXCEPT telling someone that they didn’t get the job – that remains, to this day, one of the “work duties” I have disliked most. After having spent 20 years in the dental field, I transitioned easily to healthcare, and really grew to the love the business of healthcare. I realized that I had a mind for business and I quickly changed my major from Education (I had wanted to teach junior high – I know – I’m nuts!) to Business and adjusted mind-blowingly quickly to a corporate mindset. The sales professional in me found a new and exciting home

Discussion and Confusion about the Difference

There is a healthy amount of discussion (and an unhealthy amount of confusion) over the difference between configuration and customization where software is concerned. If you are one of our clients (and if you aren’t, there’s way to fix that), you probably know this already, but we think it is a big enough deal that we thought we’d talk about it more. And we’ve done a quick 30-min presentation on this same topic.

If you’ve had more than two conversations with me, you’ll know that I love analogies.  In fact, my love for analogies is like a simile. I’m not always great with either of them. But to explain the difference between customization and configuration, I have just the analogy for the job.  We will use the wardrobes of two
