Is your VM Not Providing You Top Candidates?

Identifying the best and brightest talent in the increasingly competitive marketplace is a significant challenge for today’s healthcare organizations. The process of sifting through pools of candidates to find the ones which will be the best fit can be drain on human and financial capital. Purely software-based systems may fail to acknowledge the subtle nuances which make a candidate right, not only for a particular opening, but also for your overall organizational culture.

But what if we told you there was a better way? Read on to find out how the best managed service providers don’t just offer the latest technology, but also a trusted partnership to help you fill open positions with the best candidates.

The Challenge

Thanks to job boards, social media and networking websites, today’s job seekers gain access to job postings through more channels than ever before. While the concept of more applicants for a single opening may sound exciting in terms of upping your chances of finding the right person, this influx of interest can actually have the opposite result.

According to one Wall Street Journal report, more than half of job applicants lack the basic qualifications for the jobs to which they’re applying. And while technology can help you whittle the clutter down to a qualified few, it’s far from foolproof: Strong candidates can slip through the cracks before their inquiries are seen by a real live person.

Screening Matters

If your current vendor manager isn’t screening candidates on your behalf, you’re missing out on a major opportunity to increase efficiency and accuracy in the hiring process.

Alternatively, if your VM system consists of technology with no human interface, you may be missing out on a major piece of the hiring process. After all, the process of finding the best hires isn’t simply about scanning for keywords; rather, it’s about identifying a solution for each unique staffing challenge.

Simply put: if you’re VM fails to screen candidates or offers up “screened” pools which don’t meet your needs, it may be time to rethink your process. While software is a valuable tool, the human element is still a very necessary part of the decision-making process.

While the digital age has changed the way we operate, relationships are still at the heart of contemporary business. The right vendor management company can offer a “best of both worlds” solution comprised of sourcing, recruiting and screening accompanied with an essential human point of contact.
