When a healthcare organization needs to fill its top positions (Director through C-Suite), it is essential that hiring managers select the right person, with the right education, professional experience, and personality, for the job. The individuals you choose to place in top positions will not only represent your organization to the public, but they will also lead it, setting the bar for excellence or mediocrity.
So why exactly, when the stakes are so high, would a healthcare organization’s hiring manager choose to entrust the process of filling top positions to a healthcare executive search firm?
The Top 6 Reasons to Hire a Healthcare Executive Search Firm
1. Select Candidates from a Wider (More Qualified) Pool
When you advertise a job publicly, you will only draw interest from a limited number of qualified applicants. A Healthcare executive search firm offers a large pool of highly qualified applicants, allowing you to choose from their broad network of high-caliber, previous relationships.
2. Interview a Pre-Sorted, Vetted Group
Rather than sorting through a pile of a dozen or more resumes, you will only need to consider a handful of top candidates to select the one you believe will be the best fit.
3. Professional Approach Highlights Your Organization
Executive search firms present your organization in a flattering light and operate with the utmost professionalism, making your organization more attractive to top talent.
4. Internal and External Confidentiality
Part of the professionalism and another benefit of hiring an executive search firm comes with both internal and external confidentiality. Professional executive search firms operate with discretion, being careful not to reveal too much information about upcoming leadership changes to the wrong individuals, keeping turnover and organizational shifts quiet from the media, public and your internal staff.
5. Save Time and Money
Hiring the wrong candidate is expensive. Selecting the right individual the first time will save you invaluable time, in addition to the monetary cost of onboarding and training the wrong person.
