How to Source Locum Tenens Physicians When Demand is High

Staffing Locum Tenens Physicians

Demand for quality physicians is high and shows no signs of slowing down. However, with operating costs also higher than ever, healthcare organizations across the country must find cost-effective ways to attract top-tier physician talent without investing an enormous amount of time and resources. Seeking the support of a staffing partner can help your facility streamline its hiring process and find locum tenens candidates quickly.

Here are some of the ways your organization can benefit from a partnership with a specialized healthcare staffing recruiter.

Reduced hiring and onboarding costs. Using a staffing agency can improve your organization’s financial performance because less money and resources will need to be spent on recruiting top candidates. A specialized recruiter will handle the entire screening process, as well as preliminary paperwork and onboarding, alleviating your team from time-consuming hiring procedures.

Background checks. Conducting national background checks for all locum tenens candidates can be a hassle for your team, but is a necessary part of physician hiring protocols. It’s in your best interest to have a staffing partner complete all background checks, as most staffing firms have contracts with background check companies and can complete the process more efficiently.

Better performance outcomes. The candidates recruited by your staffing partner will have gone through a rigorous credentialing, screening and interview process, ensuring they are highly equipped to work at your organization. Not only will this benefit your employee retention, it will result in better productivity and work performance. Knowing your employees have been carefully vetted before they join your organization is one of the most valuable benefits of using a staffing partner.
