As the 2017 NAHCR Image conference in Savannah approaches, NAS reached out to various health care thought leaders to create an e-book with their ideas and recommendations. Gretchen Adams, Director of Talent Acquisition at Reading Health System, provided such a detailed and insightful response that we felt it warranted a blog post all its own.

First and foremost, we are focused on getting the attention of health care professionals. What are we able to offer them that they can’t get from their current employer? Of course, it’s different for each candidate, so we need to be in front of them to establish that relationship and to be able to understand their needs. Once we have their interest, it is important to move fast and to make them feel like they are the most important person to us throughout the recruiting, onboarding and orientation process.

In honor of the NAHCR 2017 IMAGE Conference, NAS has put together a free e-book of insights, tips and advice from our own colleagues and associates who are thought leaders in the health care space. We asked them to share their expertise regarding this year’s conference theme: 

“Honoring the Past, Treasuring the Present,
Shaping the Future of Health Care Recruitment.”

It’s a great way to learn what your peers consider important, how they are reaching their goals today and what they plan on implementing as recruitment continues to evolve in the coming years.
