The medical industry has been through a lot in recent years. Finding and retaining top talent has never been more critical in healthcare settings. How do you recruit new RNs and keep them engaged at your workplace? Here are some tips to help you attract more RNs to your facility in 2023.
Make Your Value Proposition Clear
In today’s marketplace, the value proposition that you offer to RN candidates is key to recruitment and retention. What makes your job and facility the place where someone wants to expand their career? To do this, be transparent with candidates about your environment. Communicate things about preventing burnout and providing advancement.
Be More Inclusive
DEI is made up of diversity, equity, and inclusion. Hiring for diversity and providing equitable opportunities are the first steps to creating a genuinely inclusive environment. Let incoming employees know they are valued for their background and skills, and give them a seat at the table and a voice in the organization.
Offer Real Flexibility
For a long time, organizations paid lip service to flexibility but didn’t make concrete plans to provide it. Flexibility is more important than ever and will be a deal breaker for many qualified applicants. Listen to what your employees need. Provide a way to schedule your team so there is built-in flexibility. And don’t forget to encourage the use of PTO.
Invest in Technology
Technology is at the forefront of innovation and motivation as the healthcare industry evolves. Your team needs the best tools to do their job, so don’t let yourself get complacent with how you’ve always done it. Invest in technologies that help your nurses do their job more effectively and efficiently.
Prioritize Career Growth
No one wants to stay in the same place forever. And when you have a great team of nursing talent, you don’t want to lose their skills when they look for new opportunities. Hiring entry-level employees is always easier, so work with your team to prioritize their career growth.
