Pulse Check: How to Effectively Engage Candidates in Healthcare - Panel

Back Bay D

Healthcare is a perpetually red-hot, high-growth sector within staffing, but it remains rife with operational and talent engagement challenges due to the reality that when it comes to placing a travel nurse or locum tenens physician, “getting it right” actually can be a matter of life or death. Naturally, the talent pools are much smaller, the requirements much higher, and the opportunities highly appealing. Bullhorn’s Gretchen Keefner will assemble a panel of healthcare staffing leaders to speak frankly about the candidate engagement challenges that keep them up at night, strategies for overcoming them, and where they see the market headed in light of potential legislative changes.
