What Are People Saying About Recruitment?

“I’ve spent over a thousand dollars on an Indeed/Linked In/Zip Recruiter/Etc. — Crickets.”

“Competitors keep trying to poach our people!”

“All the good ones keep quitting.”

Shifts in the Job Market:

  • Hospital Outpatient as a differentiator pays no better than general Outpatient roles.
  • Pediatric Therapies seems to be widening in its bimodal distributions with both high paying and low paying positions; and, of course, everything in between.
  • Home Health stagnated in 2022 and seems to be on the upward move for early 2023.
  • Inpatient settings across the board seem to be quite strong compared to outpatient.
  • Managers no longer get paid well enough to shoulder the difference. Unless rectified, this will likely cause some catastrophic failures amongst employer organizations lacking true management systems — managed up accountability being one of the most important ones.
