Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, the United States was projected to have a shortage of as many as 124,000 physicians by 2034. Combined with the impact of COVID, it’s safe to assume these numbers have increased. About one in five healthcare workers has quit since the pandemic started. For the in-house recruiter, you’re likely entering 2022 with less budget and greater needs. So how can you head into the new year confidently?
Plan Ahead and Always Be Recruiting
The recruiting industry has a tendency to be reactive. Which, for a while, made sense. After all, why spend money on recruiting when you don’t have openings? But as the physician shortage continues and healthcare workers leave their careers due to burnout, openings aren’t just a possibility—they’re a guarantee. Which means the question is no longer, “Will I have to invest in hiring services?” The question is, “How much will I have to invest in hiring services?”
Recruitment subscriptions allow you to stay top of mind with providers all year while paying a small, monthly fee. When subscribing with Inline, we market your facility to providers and build a pipeline of candidates who are interested in working with you. As your recruiting needs change, that pipeline is your resource to take advantage of. If your facility would benefit from high-volume, low-cost hiring, our Essential Subscription is the best option for your budget.
Recruitment subscriptions and candidate pipelines are beneficial for any healthcare facility. But maybe you’ve already planned your 2022 budget and you need something with a lower monthly cost. Hybrid subscriptions exist to keep your monthly cost low, while still building rapport with candidates throughout the year. This solution comes with a small placement fee paid upon hire. Sometimes, it’s easier to adjust the budget when you know you’re hiring a provider and filling in lost revenue. If this sounds like your budget plan for the next year, Inline’s Flex Subscription may be for you.
