Expand the Scope of Your Recruiting Efforts
You’re not the only healthcare employer searching for diverse candidates. If the healthcare talent shortage doesn’t already have you casting a wider net for applicants, your DEI goals should.
It’s never been more essential for healthcare employers to put a vigorous long-distance recruiting program in place. Don’t simply seek faraway candidates; find new ways to entice them to join your team.
You might start by viewing your entire application process through your candidates’ eyes. How warmly does your staff welcome candidates? How carefully do you choreograph their introduction to your city? How quickly do you extend a formal offer, not to mention reimburse their travel expenses?
All of these add up to an impressive courtship experience—the kind that prompts candidates to say “yes.”
Make Diverse Hires Feel Valued from the Start
Great employers make their people feel cared for, especially in high-pressure environments like healthcare. For many physicians and nurses, an employer that prioritizes work-life balance—say, that offers a somewhat lighter, more flexible work schedule—is going to get their attention.
So is one that offers thoughtful benefits, shows its appreciation frequently, and nurtures a positive work culture. When you demonstrate through your words and actions that you truly care, you don’t need to offer the highest compensation in the industry in order to attract the candidates you want.
