NAS Recruitment Innovation’s Jason Weinhaus and Tracy O’Neal were in Scottsdale for the annual IMAGE Conference sponsored by NAHCR, the National Association for Health Care Recruitment. Our Dynamic Duo were busy attending educational seminars, hosting a booth and learning about current challenges and accomplishments in healthcare recruitment. We asked them for a re-cap of their experience and to share their observations. Here’s what they had to say:

Overall vibe

Jason Weinhaus | Regional Vice President
The mood of the conference was very optimistic. Healthcare continues to be a challenging industry to attract talent, as there are so many passive candidates. With so many new targeted approaches, companies are continuously looking at improving their candidate experience and NAHCR was a great place for just that. Between networking, vendors, sessions, etc., there was great opportunity to learn and grow.

Tracy O’Neal | Account Director
This was my first NAHCR conference, and I can see why this event is so important to attendees. It offered the opportunity to learn from industry experts, gain an overview of solutions/services, and connect with peers, whether from facilities, media/publishers or technology partners.

At NAS, we understand that HR recruitment is always evolving and technology must continually rise to meet new challenges. That’s why we continue to make significant enhancements to our candidate attraction platform. ACTIVATE™ is a proprietary, cloud-based solution that combines intuitive job search functionality with career site content. It is designed to make your career site candidate-friendly, while offering your recruiting team significant advantages that make their jobs easier, too.

Recent upgrades to the ACTIVATE™ platform include:

Job Search

  • On a Job Details page, you can now add a “Jobs You May Like” tool at the bottom of the page to direct candidates to similar jobs (based on keyword, location and other factors related to the job candidates are currently viewing).
  • Featured Jobs can be placed at the top of a Job Results page; when candidates are performing a search and there is a featured job in the dashboard that matches their search criteria, the result will appear at the top of the list. This gives even more visibility to Featured Jobs.
  • Featured Groups allows you to post multiple single positions by group, displayed to give more jobs in a specific area more visibility. Featured Groups can also be displayed on your career site home page, as well as individual career site pages within ACTIVATE™, such as a job family page (Nursing, Corporate, etc.).
  • Posted Date feature allows candidates to search for jobs posted Today, 14 days, 30 days and Any.

The advice that HR professionals are thankful for

Topics: HR tools, candidate experience, recruitment analytics

In honor of Thanksgiving, the NAS team asked our clients a simple question:

What advice about recruiting are you most thankful for having received? 

Here is what they had to say… 

The advice I received that I am most thankful for is to truly not “sweat the small stuff!” You can plan visits down the last detail, only to have them derail completely, for example, while the physician is visiting. You do your best to get the visit back on track and then move on. It’s that simple. No need to dwell on what didn’t happen, just focus on what happens next!

Members of the NAS team were in Las Vegas last week (October 10-13) for HR Tech, showcasing our ACTIVATE™ candidate attraction platform and discovering a wealth of new technologies for HR recruitment. We asked them for a re-cap of the experience and to share their observations. Here’s what they had to say:

Matt Adam | EVP & Chief Talent Strategist

The scene was electric this year. We saw lots of new startup vendors mixed with the giants of
the industry. Since this is the show where many vendors unveil new versions of their platforms and solutions, there is a palpable sense of anticipation and excitement. Artificial Intelligence was a featured topic this year. Many people talked about trying to make sense of all the different options. That’s why it’s important to have a partnership with an agency that can help you sort through the buzz and identify the value of the product and how it meets your specific recruitment needs.
