Every quarter, our firm releases data from our most recent placements with clients. Here are 3 things you need to know about nursing and allied placements from our latest quarterly analysis.
1 Candidates are Moving
Nearly 82% of candidates we placed relocated to a new state in 2017 so far. These candidates received an average relocation bonus of $4,700. If you are a healthcare organization, this means your recruitment strategy should include national marketing campaigns and offer incentives to candidates who will consider a move.
2 Compensation is Trending Up
Healthcare positions dominate the lists of fastest-growing and most in-demand jobs in all major publications and studies. In fact, the latest report from the Bureau of Labor Statistics has Occupational Therapy Assistants, Physical Therapists and Assistants, Nurse Practitioners and Physician Assistants in the top 10 fastest growing occupations. This growth and demand leads to more competition and increased first year offers for both new and experienced candidates.
3 Experience is In Demand
We’ve posted previously about the need for nursing leaders, and the data shows that experienced nursing and allied professionals are changing jobs more than before. Because of the surge to hire more leaders, these professionals are looking for growth opportunities and where an employer can offer better work/life balance. Utilizing a recruitment firm to passively recruit these candidates through social media and direct mail marketing will help fill talent pipelines faster.
