The Recruitment Professional of the Future
Advancing is at the core of AAPPRs mission and, as recruitment professionals and association members, we are consistently seeking ways to advance in the profession. In the last eighteen months alone, our industry has experienced massive shifts, many of which have permanently changed how we do our jobs. Looking into the future, how do you see our profession continuing to advance? What does the recruitment professional of the future look like? What are the skills and knowledge the successful professional will need to possess? How will we learn and advance our industry in the future? We want to hear from you what the future of physician and provider recruitment will look like.
The Specialized Professional
The last decade has seen the physician and provider recruitment profession become more specialized. Teams have rapidly added sourcing and onboarding specialists, professionals who focus on recruiting or retaining residents and fellows, and professionals dedicated to recruiting and onboarding advanced practice clinicians. Has your role or team become more specialized? How has increased specialization in the industry changed your organization? We would love to hear your story.
Innovating for the Future
As physician and provider recruitment professionals, we continually strive to innovate new ways to bring top talent to our communities. Have you or your team completed a project that has improved your organization’s sourcing, interview, or offer process? Did your organization recently create a formal onboarding program? Has your team developed an innovative retention strategy? We want to hear how you and your team are innovating and preparing for the future.
With the physician shortage continuing to challenge organizations, many teams have begun to reevaluate their partnerships with agencies. In some cases, recruitment teams have developed a more collaborative relationship with both locum and permanent placement agencies to ensure a pipeline that meets the needs of a service line or organization. Has your outlook and partnerships with agencies evolved? Has partnering with an agency changed your recruitment strategies? We are interested in learning more about how teams can successfully work with agency partners to further improve their recruitment efforts.
Diversity, Equality, and Inclusivity
In April 2022, AAPPR launched its certificate in Diversity, Equity, and Inclusivity. The course recognizes the importance of recruitment professionals developing the skills for effective diversity recruitment and to demonstrate skills and leadership proficiency in this area withing the profession and their organizations. AAPPRs DEI course and committee aim to further foster in members the ability to influence effective DEI and diversity recruitment strategies to support and drive systemic change. Is your recruitment team or organization a leader in the area of DEI? We want to hear from you.
