"Recruiting for Retention Workshop: A Rural Focus on Attracting & Finding Candidates and Retention Best Practices in Today’s Environment"
will be presented as a post-workshop learning session during the 2023 Rural Health Workshop.
This workshop will focus on navigating your recruitment and retention efforts in today’s workforce environment, including marketing your rural opportunity to candidates, managing your rural recruitment in a virtual world, and retention best practices that can position you as an employer of choice. We will discuss how the pandemic has impacted the healthcare workforce and changed the way we recruit. You will learn tips on developing a sourcing plan, email campaigns, virtual interviewing and time-saving tools that will help streamline your recruitment processes, particularly in a rural setting. We will also examine effective retention strategies and unique benefits that will help you develop a competitive retention plan.
PHASE 2: Readiness Assessments
August 2023 - November 2023
The Virtual Recruitment for Retention Readiness Assessment by 3RNET assesses how a facility and community engage and retain healthcare professionals. In addition to recognizing all the great practices, processes and attractions a facility and area provide, the assessment will give additional resources for best practices, help identifying unique selling points and ideas to invest in challenges.
Assessment Process Includes:
Participating in one virtual interview (1 hour) with representation from some or all of the following from the facility - Leadership, Community/Board, Recruiter/HR and Provider.
External audit by 3RNET staff includes web presence, sourcing, marketing.
Post-project virtual meeting to go over the results of the Assessment.
A participating facility will receive a basic assessment of your Recruitment for Retention readiness. This Assessment will be in a format that is easily disseminated and will include:
LRHA will select a total of nine (9) facilities, one (1) from each geographic region of Louisiana, to receive the 3RNET Virtual Recruitment for Retention Readiness Assessment: 3 Rural Health Clinics, 3 Rural Hospitals, and 3 Rural Federally Qualified Health Centers. Participants will be selected by considering a number of factors, including: rural status, provider type, need, and geographic location.
