Healthcare has been experiencing talent shortage for several years and as indicated by studies, the problem is only going to get worse. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, healthcare employment is projected to grow, adding about 2.4 million new jobs by 2026. Healthcare is projected to add more jobs than any other occupational group and with the strong growth, it’s become really important for the healthcare industry to try new approaches to recruitment.

FlashRecruit is helping healthcare recruiters connect with new talent every day. One customer placed 109 Travel RNs last year specifically from embracing live messaging on FlashRecruit.com.  Live messaging provides new channels of recruiting candidates that are already out there. The best candidates are already in the workforce and FlashRecruit has set up a tactical candidate experience job board to target those passive candidates.

Connections Anywhere, Anytime

"I had a candidate that couldn’t talk as she was at work – so she hopped online to chat.  Worked out well – we ended up submitting her over for consideration."- Alicia, Vaco

FlashRecruit is designed to connect recruiters and candidates immediately using our chat widget integrated with the career site and job posting or over an external link. Recruiters can receive chats at anytime on the FlashRecruit dashboard, our mobile app, or even get notified via text message.

In healthcare staffing, having the ability to chat with potential candidates at any point is fundamental. The best candidates are already in the workforce and to connect with them, recruiters have to be at the right place, in the right time - literally. Live chat does that.

A Boost to Your Employer Brand

“Candidates coming through FlashRecruit have the best candidate experience and are more likely to pass on referrals.” - Joann, Healthtrust

Clients who use FlashRecruit are simply offering a new channel of open communication for job seekers, which only adds more value to your business. The chat live option is new to the recruitment space, but according to the customer service industry, live chat is the most used form of communication and in fact, 51% of consumers are more likely to stay or buy again from a company if they offer live chat support.

Competitive Edge in a Tight Market

"It's another way to talk to candidates. It also makes DMC Atlanta sticks out in the area v.s. other competitors because they have this feature." -Tia Maiello, DMC Atlanta

With the tight market, there is no sliding by with minimal effort to be competitive. Recruiting has always been about who can offer the best and who can get to the candidate first. FlashRecruit not only allows you to chat with the candidate when they’re on your job posting in the research phase, but we also send candidates to your recruiters in real-time.

FlashRecruit has been providing healthcare organizations the opportunity to connect with candidates faster than ever before. Get started with FlashRecruit and request a demo today to learn more!
