When Every Second Counts: HealthSouth Goes Digital [VIDEO]
By Kate Lukach
We've all heard the saying, "time is money." But in the healthcare market, every second can be life-altering. HealthSouth, a patient-centered, innovative, and forward-thinking provider of rehabilitation services, turned to digital interviewing to help fill open positions quickly, with the best talent, shorten cycle times, and reduce manager time spent away from patients interviewing the wrong candidates.
HealthSouth hires highly-qualified therapists and specialists to provide an advanced level of rehabilitative care to patients who are recovering from conditions such as stroke and other neurological disorders, orthopedic, cardiac and pulmonary conditions, brain and spinal cord injuries and amputations. Recruiting was typically a time intensive and expensive process. HealthSouth turned to HireVue to streamline their recruiting practices, save thousands in unnecessary expenses, improve manager and candidate satisfaction, increase productivity and importantly – decrease time to fill.
With HireVue, HealthSouth candidates now complete their interview at their convenience through a HealthSouth-branded portal, using a computer and webcam or their favorite mobile device. From there, HealthSouth’s recruiting team and hiring managers easily review, share and rate candidate responses from their respective geographic location - anywhere, anytime - not during patient hours.
As a result of going digital, HealthSouth reports incredible improvements in productivity, candidate experience, cost savings, and more, including:
• Reduced time to hire by 50%
• Reduced interview time by 90%
• Staffed geographically dispersed team in 3 months
• Improved candidate & manager experience, and more.
But don't just take my word for it. Watch as six members of the HealthSouth team (including the company's CHRO, head of talent acquisition, hiring managers and former candidates) talk about their digital journey, the benefits and results to date.
What do wasted minutes mean to your organization? Less time spent selling? Less time spent with patients? Less time teaching or educating?
