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.

Nearly 70% of U.S. employees have either returned to work for a previous employer or are open to being a “boomerang” employee at some point in the future. In our last blog post, we discussed why companies should embrace boomerangs – employees who leave a company voluntarily only to be rehired. This week, we’ll cover some of the strategies you can use to catch those boomerangs – and keep them. Let’s get started.

Keep a database of people who leave in good standing. Similar to your Talent Network, place exiting employees’ contact information in a database for ongoing sharing of company news and new opportunities. You already have this information; use it to maintain the communication channel and demonstrate that your former employee’s contribution was valued.

Every year, we all resolve to make changes. We keep some resolutions, while others fall by the wayside. I believe that the more practical the resolution, the greater chance we have of keeping it. Here are the three simple and reasonable resolutions that every talent acquisition professional should make in 2017.

Resolution #1: Make the candidate experience a priority

Everyone talks about the candidate experience. No doubt it is on your agenda, but have you actually taken a hard look at the actual experience you offer candidates? I suggest that you start by pretending to be a candidate. Search for a job that you offer, and see whether your company appears. Follow the candidate’s path through to your career site. Consider it through the eyes of a job seeker:

  • Is there a visually appealing employment brand that communicates who you are and what you offer?
  • What relevant career-related content are you providing? Does it answer the questions of a typical candidate, including “What’s in it for me?” (Here’s a site we created that does just that.)
  • Is it easy to navigate and find a job?
  • How difficult is the application process?
