National Healthcare Recruiter Recognition Day

Blog

Given the challenges over the last few years due to the pandemic, many healthcare workers are experiencing burnout and leaving the industry altogether, putting more pressure on healthcare organizations and their employees. And while retention efforts in healthcare have always been an ongoing heavy lift, the increase in turnover along with a significant increase in need of our healthcare professionals has never been a starker reality. It takes individuals who are truly dedicated to their work, and who truly know the impact they have on building their organization’s healthcare teams in order to better serve those in need of medical help. And while every day is appropriate to express gratitude to our healthcare recruiters, today is apropos, as this is the 31st year, on the first Tuesday in June, each year, that Congress has recognized “National Healthcare Recruiter Day.”

 

 

At Shaker, we understand this at all levels. Daily we work alongside our healthcare clients consulting on healthcare talent attraction strategies. Jessica Engelhard, Corporate Director, Talent Acquisition Emory Healthcare knows that the role of healthcare recruiters and the success of healthcare institutions is paramount.

“The dedication, enthusiasm, and level of service it takes to support the business, overcome market challenges, and remain innovative, takes a very special person; one that is driven by passion, compassion, and being a part of something bigger. To my wonderful team, and all those committed to Healthcare Recruitment, thank you for all you do.”

Jimmy McCourt, VP of Client Services at Shaker, who oversees our healthcare division, sees the dedication of these teams day in and day out, and knows well their inherent desire to see their organizations survive – and thrive. Jimmy shares,

Through these professionals’ efforts, organizations can truly impact the lives of so many. Lori Anne Roberson, Senior Director Talent Acquisition with PT Solutions, enthusiastically conveys,

It is certainly no secret the way our healthcare recruiters affect change within our health systems, though spotlighting them and their efforts on this day, of all days, is important.

As this challenging market continues, for those of you recruiting within healthcare—all of us at Shaker applaud your unwavering efforts over the past two years and support you in the weeks and months ahead.
