<p class="has-primary-color has-text-color">Healthcare recruitment processes are rapidly evolving, particularly when finding candidates with the right qualifications and experience. The World Health Organization <a href=",and%20performance%20of%20their%20workforce." target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener">(WHO) estimates a further 10 million health workers will be needed globally by 2030</a>. With the increased demand for healthcare professionals, employers should invest in technology and digital solutions to gain a competitive edge in their large-scale recruitment efforts.</p> <p class="has-primary-color has-text-color">Among the many benefits that investing in technology can offer, at its core, it can help employers increase efficiency and productivity, mitigate risk and save time.</p> <p class="has-primary-color has-text-color">Here we discuss some of the healthcare hiring trends we can expect to see in 2023 and how technology solutions could help employers overcome some of the biggest and most common hiring challenges.</p> <h2>Digital Verification</h2> <p class="has-primary-color has-text-color">More than any other industry, it is vital that each individual hired in the healthcare industry has the right skills and experience for the job. Hiring unqualified healthcare candidates with fraudulent qualifications can literally be the difference between life and death and have devastating effects on your company, staff, patients, communities and clients.<br><br>By verifying a candidate is who they say they are early at the application stage, recruiters can avoid the risk of a bad hire further down the line and save time in the recruitment process. <a href="" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener">We reported that employment certificate fraud rates increased by nearly 30%</a> throughout the pandemic. This alarming figure highlights the urgent need for organizations to implement and follow a vigorous vetting process to ensure candidates genuinely have the qualifications they claim to have in the application stage.</p> <p class="has-primary-color has-text-color"><a href="" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener">Primary Source Verification (PSV)</a> is a trusted standard for a thorough background screening of candidates worldwide and can be completed before you meet or even consider a candidate. The digital verification process checks the identity of the candidate and the validity of any documents and certificates directly from the Issuing Authority, such as a university, previous employers and licensing bodies.</p> <figure class="wp-block-image size-large"><img decoding="async" loading="lazy" width="1024" height="535" src="" alt="" class="wp-image-16170" srcset=" 1024w, 300w, 768w, 1200w" sizes="(max-width: 1024px) 100vw, 1024px" /></figure> <h2>Global Talent Pools</h2> <p class="has-primary-color has-text-color">Sourcing talent locally or via ‘traditional’ methods can restrict employers from finding the perfect hire. With the global shortages of healthcare professionals, and candidates worldwide seeking opportunities overseas, widening your geographical search can help recruiters combat the staffing crisis and find talent to fill the growing skills gaps.</p> <p class="has-primary-color has-text-color">Technology has made it easier to find and connect with candidates globally. Online talent pools are becoming increasingly popular with candidates and give employers instant access to qualified healthcare professionals seeking new roles. Online talent pools are also a great way to simplify hiring. The sophisticated technology allows recruiters to easily search, shortlist and contact candidates with the specific skills, specialties and attributes needed for the role.</p> <p class="has-primary-color has-text-color">Video conferencing tools saw a surge during the pandemic and have become common practice in many industries. When hiring internationally, these platforms are a helpful way to meet candidates and conduct interviews and meetings.</p> <h2>API Integration</h2> <p class="has-primary-color has-text-color">Companies have standardized a way to connect to any data source through templates and pre-built connectors, allowing them to pivot quickly if and when needed. With modern Application Programming Interfaces (APIs), digital solutions can integrate with your existing HR system to keep all of your HR tools in one place while making your hiring processes more efficient.</p> <p class="has-primary-color has-text-color">The biggest healthcare hiring trend for 2023 will be taking advantage of technology solutions.
