Without a doubt, executive leadership positions in healthcare organizations can be some of the most effective or ineffective hires hospitals can make. And so, it’s not without challenge that these roles are carefully selected by hiring teams. However, this model, which has allowed for careful consideration on unknown timelines is currently being upended by the need for experienced candidates, now.
We’ve been holding our breath for years waiting for the wave of baby boomer generation to begin retiring in droves, and that time is now. The Covid-19 pandemic has added fuel to the fire and we’re now seeing many executives stepping back or announcing that they will not be returning or seeking an extension to their current contracts.
Hiring the next generation of leadership is going to be a big challenge for hospitals and healthcare organizations of all sizes. The majority of prospective healthcare leadership executives are not active enough on social media, job boards, so web searches or ancillary websites to target exclusively on digital channels aren’t always effective.
As a result, many hospitals are struggling with the available resources, experience and strategies to effectively network and connect with the right candidates to fill these all-too-important roles.
ARRA’s approach to hiring executive leadership has always started with our individual recruitment strategy, developed side-by-side with our clients, and further tailored through proprietary research, data intelligence, and ongoing optimization.
We don’t rely on job boards, we don’t rely on ads, we rely on our experience and emotional intelligence (EQ) communication training to understand the needs of our executive candidates and hospital leaders. We’re not interested in “placing” your next CEO, CFO, CNO, or C-Suite Superstar, we want to help you find the right executive leadership partner to fulfill your organization’s goals and mission.
