5 Best Practices for Creating a Global Employee Onboarding Strategy

The purpose of employee onboarding should be setting new hires up for success and decreasing the time it takes for them to become comfortable in their new roles and this works best if onboarding processes are designed strategically with the end goal in mind. However, the rise of remote and hybrid work, along with an increase in globally dispersed teams, has complicated the global employee onboarding experience.

According to a press release from Indeed, beginning July 18 of this year nearly every position on Indeed’s site now has a salary — either entered by the recruiter or estimated by Indeed’s algorithm (as long as Indeed has enough data to provide a salary estimate). Before July 18, large employers could opt out of this process, but being a large employer no longer exempts you from having to post a salary range or prevents Indeed from estimating one for you.

In the United States, most clinicians must be licensed in each state in which they intend to practice and serve patients. This can limit the availability of health services, contribute to provider shortages, and restrict job opportunities for providers. It can also be a financial burden for nurses, due to the fees associated with licensing.

A labor shortage in the healthcare industry, from front desk workers and medical technicians to doctors and nurses, means that healthcare organizations are fiercely competitive in this new talent acquisition environment.  Successful healthcare talent acquisition requires a strategic and comprehensive approach to ensure that the right employees are hired and retained.

 3-key-employment-issues-affecting-healthcare-in-2022-and-beyond

Healthcare systems are still reeling from changes spurred by the pandemic, progression in healthcare technology, and evolving patient needs. But the healthcare industry isn’t immune to external trends in employment, especially when it comes to attracting and retaining talent, supporting employee well-being, and providing a fair workplace culture and practices. 

Impact-of-the-pandemic-on-nurse-bullying

Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, it may come as no surprise that increased job stress and patient frustration have resulted in an increasingly hostile environment for nurses. Nursing is a profession that requires long hours in a high-stress environment, with a heavy workload thanks to the current nursing shortage. 

These factors create a workplace that is ripe for nurse bullying.

National background check long term care provider program

Over the past few years, 27 states have participated in the National Background Check Program to develop screening programs for long-term-care facilities. The Office of Inspector General (OIG) recently completed its fifth in a series of six reports on the program. This report focused on Idaho and Mississippi, the two states continuing the program. Twenty-seven states have completed their participation in the program.

An entire healthcare organization can benefit when medical staff services and HR align.

A medical staff services office comprises medical staff professionals (MSPs) and credentialing specialists. They are responsible for credentialing and privileging medical staff members, keeping up with medical staff bylaws, and more.

In contrast, HR managers and employees are often responsible for promoting employee hiring and retention initiatives, managing financial matters such as payroll, and making sure healthcare regulations are followed.

The year 2021 saw significant disruptions in the labor market, as a record number of workers quit or changed jobs. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, 3.7 million workers quit their jobs in March 2021, rising to a historic 4.5 million in November 2021. This trend, dubbed the “Great Resignation,” has continued well into 2022. Preliminary numbers suggest another 4.5 million quit in March 2022.

Different types of bias, whether intentional or unintentional, have been a concern among HR departments for decades. In fact, psychologists have defined more than 180 human biases.

Artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) programs have been promoted as a more objective, less biased way to screen, hire, and train job candidates. Unfortunately, humans may program biased information into algorithms, skewing results. AI programs also may exhibit bias when they lack sufficient, representative data.
