Time-to-Place for Staffing Agencies
Even the best staffing agencies are having time-to-place challenges in healthcare, an industry where talent is scarce and demand is on the rise. For example, recent analysis finds that the unemployment rate among RNs is at a miniscule 0.7 percent — that’s about five times lower than the national average.
As healthcare organizations struggle to attract and hire top talent, their reliance on staffing agencies is growing. Lowering your time-to-place — without sacrificing the quality of your placements — can help an agency stand out in a crowded field and win more business. But decreasing time-to-place is a complex undertaking that requires a strategic approach.
Chances are, your time-to-place problem is characterized by one or more of these underlying conditions:
- Ultra-competitive labor markets
- Poor employer brand, or lack thereof
- Slow and inefficient order intake
- Lack of visibility into spend efficiency
