What is healthcare hiring?
Healthcare hiring is the process of recruiting and selecting qualified individuals to fill job positions in the healthcare industry. This involves advertising open positions, screening resumes, interviewing candidates, and selecting the most suitable person for the job.

As the demand for healthcare workers continues to grow, many organizations are struggling to fill their open positions. The result is an increasingly competitive job market, with employers battling for the best and brightest candidates.

iCIMS recently published their April Monthly Workforce Report and here are some benchmarks you can track against to see how your organization is doing in health services hiring.
