Job candidates have evolved in marketplace
By Danny Davila, Executive Director
The struggle continues as we try to build the ideal pipeline of qualified candidates for healthcare systems. A significant amount of resources is invested annually in training, advertising and development to tap into potential candidate pools that may not exist. This challenge has been an obstacle to professionals for several years. We must continually examine the various “talent mining” tactics to increase our efficiency. The candidate marketplace has evolved, with increased value now being placed on flexibility rather than long-term, permanent employment. Such histories were once highly regarded when a candidate had 10-plus years of continuous employment. In today’s market, this type of tenure is becoming a rarity.
