does randstad healthcare screen candidates to ensure that licensure and certification requirements are met? May 8, 2019 11:53:41 AM 2019-05-08 15:53:41

Absolutely! In fact, we have a dedicated credentialing team in place to make sure that all requirements are met before the sourcing process even starts.

Beyond best-in-class processes for validating credentials, we can also make actionable recommendations about how you're using resources — because we want to make sure you're always using the right candidates for the right roles. For example, having a physician covering where a nurse practitioner would do just fine is more than a talent misalignment — it's also going to seriously injure your bottom line.

But in such a competitive field, you can't afford to let access to top talent hold you back.

The candidates in our unmatched nationwide talent network come from a variety of sources, including:

  • referrals from our talent network
  • online job portals
  • external job boards

At Randstad Healthcare, we go above and beyond finding talent that simply "works" — we find talent that delivers real value to your organization today and tomorrow. And because our staffing experts know that top healthcare professionals aren't always actively looking for new positions, we take a high-tech, high-touch approach to networking and building relationships with passive candidates, too. The bottom line is that when you partner with Randstad Healthcare, you'll gain access to a nationwide network of top-notch, qualified candidates you won't find anywhere else.

what level of professional experience is typical of randstad healthcare talent? May 8, 2019 11:54:23 AM 2019-05-08 15:54:23

A strong track record of professional experience is something we always look for in candidates at Randstad Healthcare — from our own experience, we know that it strongly correlates with success on the job. That's why, within our traveling nurse practice, for example, two years' previous professional experience is an absolute minimum. What’s more, we have a dedicated credentialing team in place to make sure all requirements are met before the sourcing process even starts. It's simply our way of ensuring that candidates are capable, qualified and ready to contribute value from day one.

At the same time, each placement is unique, so we'll work with you consultatively to answer questions like:

  • What skills — specifically and generally — does this role demand?
  • What types of procedures will be involved?
  • How big is the facility?
  • What volume of patients will our talent be working with?

And we can tailored our talent requirements accordingly. After all, we recognize that success in certain fields, like allied health, often requires less extensive background experience than specialties like pediatric CV or OR nurses. Regardless of the role and its needs, our goal is to ensure that the requirements we put in place effectively deliver on yours.

how can staffing partners unlock growth opportunities for healthcare companies today? May 8, 2019 11:55:09 AM 2019-05-08 15:55:09

Enhanced compliance, improved patient outcomes, decreased operational risks — there's no limit to the ways staffing partners can help eliminate barriers to growth for healthcare companies today. And that starts with forecasting to align on short- and long-term goals. Whatever the future looks like 30, 60 or 90 days out, we'll work with you to proactively identify the obstacles that need to be overcome and develop a plan to help you get there.

One best practice to bear in mind: If you're looking ahead to future growth, it's a good idea to engage a staffing partner at least three months in advance. That way, your partner can better help you prepare strategically and begin building out a pipeline of best-fit talent that will deliver the most value to your business.

Of course, sometimes you simply don't have enough lead time — we get it. But when that's the case, contingent staffing is the best solution available to you, too!

what qualities should i look for in a potential staffing partner? May 8, 2019 11:55:19 AM 2019-05-08 15:55:19

Ethical alignment is the cornerstone of any effective partnership in the healthcare space. Why?

For starters, while healthcare is already heavily regulated, the burden of regulation appears to be intensifying today. HIPAA guidelines, new SOC I and II reporting requirements — these are just the tip of the iceberg, and the penalties of even a single infraction can be severe. Still more worrisome, in joint-employer environments, the risk of infractions can quickly escalate as it may not always be clear which party is responsible for ensuring compliance with each regulatory check box.

In this context, having an ethically trustworthy staffing partner is paramount. You should look for a staffing partner with a demonstrated commitment to transparency, as well as expertise navigating and maintaining compliance in a complex regulatory environment.

At Randstad Healthcare, for example, we're a joint-commission certified staffing agency. That means ethical practices and transparency are particularly important to us — and we prove it in the in-depth audits we're subjected to annually. Only by consistently maintaining the highest standards across areas like performance, continuing education, training, placement criteria and more are we able to carry the mantle of joint-commission certification. It's something we're proud of, and we know it gives our healthcare partners greater peace of mind, too.

how can staffing partners improve diversity and inclusion for healthcare companies? May 8, 2019 11:55:28 AM 2019-05-08 15:55:28

There's a lot of interest in diversity and inclusion (D&I) today — rightly so — and that extends to the vendors you work with, as well as the candidates you hire. At Randstad Healthcare, D&I is more than just talk. It's a daily practice, and it's been one of our core strategic pillars for a very long time. You can see that in a lot of places, beginning with our long tradition of partnership with women- and veteran-owned businesses. Within the healthcare space, moreover, we're also partnering with several facilities to establish D&I goals and implement metrics to help them track their progress — because we want to make sure we're constantly moving the needle.

After all, people are our business, so we always put them first. That means we're committed to operating in a way that's socially responsible, including a commitment to diversity in our supplier base. And by leveraging our knowledge of industry best practices, we can also help you identify D&I strategies and goals that align with your company culture and will make the most impact on the ground in 2019 and beyond.

Today, we have a number of D&I partnerships, programs and opportunities in place, with even more planned for the future. So we're not only making good on our own D&I goals, but advancing those of our clients, as well. Get in touch with us today to learn more.

how can staffing partners help healthcare companies save money without sacrificing quality? May 8, 2019 11:55:39 AM 2019-05-08 15:55:39

Cost containment is a major challenge for many healthcare companies today. They're operating with relatively slim margins, and labor represents a majority of net operating expenses in many cases. And that's where staffing partners can help.

At Randstad Healthcare, we don't think of cost and quality as being mutually exclusive — in our experience, cost savings and quality improvements typically go hand in hand. For example, when staffing partners work proactively with your in-house HR team to enhance onboarding processes, that can help move the needle on key talent metrics like engagement and retention. And when you have qualified contingent workers available to handle peak demand, there's less of a burden on your existing full-time workforce, which leads to lower rates of turnover and burnout, to boot.

Partnering with a staffing company shouldn't be thought of as a tradeoff between cost and quality — and with Randstad Healthcare, you'll never have to choose.

how does randstad manage talent once a placement has been made? May 8, 2019 11:55:48 AM 2019-05-08 15:55:48

Sourcing and hiring talent — that’s our expertise. Delivering the highest quality patient care is yours. And when you partner with Randstad Healthcare, we'll focus on what we do best so that you can, too.

You'll have less of an administrative burden on your plate and more time to focus on caring for patients and improving outcomes.

So how you approach day-to-day talent management and supervision is entirely up to you. At Randstad Healthcare, we know your dedicated team of onsite healthcare professionals have the education, training and experience to do it best.

why do healthcare companies use staffing partners? May 8, 2019 11:56:33 AM 2019-05-08 15:56:33

Leading healthcare companies today recognize that staffing partners can solve key hiring pain points, particularly around flexibility, specialized talent and market knowledge.

What do we mean by “flexibility”? Fluctuations in demand, together with periods of rapid growth, are characteristic of many healthcare settings today. And to thrive amidst volatility, you need a staffing partner that can flex, scale and adapt as rapidly as you do. So when demand spikes, we'll step in, ensuring you continue to deliver exceptional patient care — without the risk that you'll be over-staffed later on.

Beyond fluctuations in demand, staffing partners also help healthcare companies address their most pressing and immediate talent needs. Let's say, for example, you're looking to fill a highly specialized, highly in-demand role in a specific geographic market. Staffing partners bring to the table deep healthcare domain expertise, firsthand knowledge of market-specific rates and trends, as well as an unmatched network of qualified talent available on demand — all factors that accelerate time to fill.

Finally, strategic partners can empower you with local market knowledge of the latest tech and trends impacting your field. And that can be particularly valuable in the healthcare space, where compensation and talent availability vary significantly from state to state.
