Case Study: Increasing job exposure and cutting time-to-hire among the healthcare talent crisis

According to recent numbers, more than 1.1 million of seasoned physicians and RNs are expected to retire within the next few years. When you combine this with the notoriously high turnover rate healthcare workers, the industry is on the path towards a massive talent crisis. For many healthcare providers, it may seem like this shortage is already here and the pressure to overcome it is a challenge they face everyday.

This was the case recently with Stanford Children’s Hospital. With over 500 positions open at any given time, the hospital’s small team of recruiters was regularly tasked with finding highly specialized candidates for open positions that require special certifications, education and pediatric experience. With the additional hurdle of practitioners needing to be licensed in California, the odds are often stacked against the recruiters in their search.

Among other roles, the hospital’s team had a particularly hard time finding Genetic Counselors– the absence of which was heavily slowing down patient flow and affecting doctor intake numbers. The position was also part-time, which made the search that much harder for a highly competitive profession. The agencies they had turned to in their search were unsuccessful in generating any candidates.

With the help of Uncommon, the hospital was able to maximize the exposure of its open  positions via access to niche and high-traffic job boards. And using Uncommon’s automated screening process, they were able to cut down the time spent sorting resumes manually.

The results? Significant success in hiring candidates that met all of their qualifications within the first 30 days of their search.
