If you had to choose one thing right now that is making things extra tough, what would it be? One of the hottest topics I’ve been asked about lately is definitely about understanding recruitment.
For my friends in the recruitment space, they’ve observed that this is one of the toughest markets they’ve seen. Particularly in the allied health sector.
While this is obviously another effect of COVID-19, understanding recruitment and unlocking its secrets is something every allied health business owner should have a grasp on. This week’s PPMP podcast can apply to anyone struggling with recruitment, not just during the pandemic.
The fascinating thing is that I am in an interesting position. I get to see what works really, really well, as the vast majority of my clients are recruiting like wildfire.
Their positions are being filled, and this is opening up all sorts of opportunities in their businesses. But, let’s not forget that this success requires a certain kind of strategy.
It’s about getting creative. It’s about being able to cut-through the recruitment noise so you can be consistent.
In the newest PPMP episode, I’m taking you on a journey. A recruitment journey.
Part of this adventure involves a brand-new complimentary webinar event: Recruit Like a Rockstar.
I’m so excited to share this with you, and yes, you read that right: it’s free! I absolutely want to help out with one of the biggest challenges that allied health business owners are facing right now with running their businesses, so I hope to see you there.
Before listening to the full episode, here’s a sneak-peek of key parts that make up a cut-through, strategic, and systemized recruitment approach.
How Understanding Recruitment Can Effect Your Business
There’s no doubt that recruitment impacts so many factors in a business. Recruitment allows you to grow, or better yet, scale your business.
Through being more strategic in your recruitment role, you’re able to have a larger influence on the lives of current and future clients.
How can you attract your ideal teammate if you don’t have a clear strategy?
A Magic Ingredient…
Another major part of the recruitment process, which happens to be a magic ingredient, is how you refocus and reuse your time.
I’ve spoken about becoming team-facing before. Going from client-facing to team-facing is a sure-fire way to embrace your team’s diversity, leverage their strengths, and make them feel valued for their hard work. It helps you focus on internal processes, which can lead to an overall growth of your business.
With a strong recruitment plan under your belt, you can get back to doing the things inside your business you’ve been waiting to do. You can finally tick off those to-do lists that have been gathering dust in the corner.
Have You Thought About Your 2021 Goals?
2020 has sure been a year we never expected. It feels like predictability has gone straight out the window.
But what about 2021? And 2022? And beyond?
If there were ever a time to plan ahead, this is it. While COVID has destroyed many of our plans, that doesn’t mean we can’t start planning for our business goals across 2021.
Strategize not only your future recruitment plans, but also your general goals and aspirations for the coming year. Let’s hope that 2021 will be a lot smoother and predictable than its predecessor.
Recruit Like a Rockstar Live Webinar
What exactly can you expect from this upcoming webinar?
I want to have some good, hearty discussions to share some of those success factors for recruitment, which we’re calling the Seven Success Factors. You’ll have the opportunity to ask your own questions, too.
We’re going to talk about how you need to have a strategic system in place on the highly systemized and documented approach to recruitment.
We’ll also cover:
- The business side of recruitment and the need for a business case
- Understanding salary, position descriptions, KPIs, and bringing it all together in a compelling package to give you a competitive edge in the marketplace
- Employer value proposition and employee perspectives
- Leveraging professional networks
- How to optimise your online persona – sharpening your social media platform and website Dos and Don’ts
So, if any of these questions have popped up in your head:
“What do I have to do to get a therapist?”
“What am I doing wrong?”
“What else can I be doing?”
It’s time to take a hard look at strategizing and systemizing your recruitment process.
Listen to the podcast to hear how you can learn a different, but successful, way to get that creative cut-through approach to understanding recruitment.
And while you’re at it, register for the Recruit Like a Rockstar webinar before spaces run out! Get excited to continue building your team, your business, and the impact you have on your current and future clients. See you soon.
