Identifying the leaky funnel.
Position yourself in the candidate perspective. Traveling healthcare workers are often times living out of a suitcase, packing only the essentials and looking to be as efficient as possible in their journey. You might be sitting at a desk with a double-monitor desktop, printer/scanner by your side and crazy fast wifi, but your nurse likely isn’t. Your agency might have some stellar opportunities, but the application, and the beginnings of that tedious credentialing process is your front door to a successful placement. So think to yourself … “when a nurse enters my agency’s front door, how are we accommodating for their situation?”
Nurses need a mobile friendly process. Quickly. And without friction.
User experience will differentiate your staffing agency.
When it comes to the new hire process a top notch user experience is not the future, it is the current. Nurses are demanding a frictionless hiring process that respects their time and sensitive information. Remove the friction, provide data security, and give a user experience that showcases how your agency operates.
Your first impression tells a lot about how the next few months will be should a nurse choose to work with you. Don’t spoil it with unneeded confusion and frustration from the start. Providing a rockstar onboarding process that measures up to the quality of your staffing agency is critical when interacting with today’s healthcare workforce.
