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

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
