Redefining Recruitment to Retention

Our Survey

Since 2011, AAPPR’s In-House Physician and Provider Recruitment Benchmarking Report has been providing credible industry data to help in-house recruitment professionals prepare, plan, and forecast. This report includes physician and provider search information plus recruitment staff profiles and compensation figures. Our 2023 Benchmarking Report represents more than 150 organizations and more than 19,000 active searches, almost two-thirds specific to physician searches. The information is collected and confidentially prepared by Industry Insights, Inc.

Based on participant feedback, the Benchmarking report has been strategically divided into two distinct data collection phases. This refined approach not only simplifies the data submission process—with compensation data now self-reported, thereby bypassing the necessity for HR departmental scrutiny—but also ensures a more targeted collection. By focusing on compensation and searches independently, industry professionals can benefit from more precise benchmarking to inform their strategies and operations.
