5 Reasons to Recruit Right Now in the Healthcare Industry

DALLAS, May 03, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- There’s a season for everything in business, and when it comes to recruiting physicians, that season is now. The Delta Companies (TDC), a leading staffing firm for healthcare professionals nationwide, shares five reasons why your recruiting efforts should start today.

No. 1: The Window Is Open Right Now
Now is the peak season for candidate relocation. The summer months are an ideal time for candidates to move because children are out of school, the weather is agreeable, and many professional services companies have shorter workweeks. Candidates who are looking to change practice opportunities tell us they are interested in making commitments now.

No. 2: Eliminate Stress for the Family
Any career change takes time to plan, and when a household move is involved, the stakes are even higher. From selling an existing home to finding a new one, there are many moving parts that take time and energy. Recruiting now gives busy families time to plan.

No. 3: Physicians Have Time to Give Notice and Apply for Licensure
Physicians typically give 30 to 60 days of notice, so recruiting no­w will give their current employer time to prepare. Physicians also have time to inform their patients and tie up loose ends. And, if the physician is moving to another state, he or she will need time to go through the required credentialing and licensure process.

No. 4: The Devil Is in the Details
Selling a home, changing schools, and finding new service providers takes time. And, don’t forget that lending laws have changed, often lengthening the time necessary for the home selling and closing process. Recruiting now gives candidates time to get all of their personal affairs in order.

No. 5: You Have Time to Shape the Future
When you’re recruiting for planned attrition, retirement, and growth, start as early as possible. If peak season recruiting isn’t possible, there’s a secondary window from mid-December through mid-January. This is another time when children are out of school (winter break), although it’s typically only for two to three weeks. Begin your recruiting efforts for a year-end placement within the next couple of months.

Working with the right recruiting and staffing partner to identify, interview, and negotiate with candidates is critical to your healthcare staffing success. The right partner will have the expertise necessary to make any candidate relocation happen as smoothly as possible.
