Top Rated Healthcare Staffing Firms: Second Half 2022

by | Jan 17, 2023

Last year was tough for healthcare staffing. Despite this, several healthcare staffing firms rose to the occasion and distinguished themselves as industry leaders. That’s why we’ve named them as Top Rated Healthcare Staffing Firms for the second half of 2022. 

Shortages, skyrocketing labor costs, volatile economic conditions, and other factors contributed to difficult operating environments across healthcare facilities. According to some reports, labor shortages presented the biggest challenge for healthcare facilities (with 80% reporting it as a top concern). Additionally, 70% cited longer times to fill positions & 46% cited burnout as top challenges.

Unfortunately, this problem doesn’t seem to be going away anytime soon. The Bureau of Labor Statistics anticipates 500,000 nurses to retire over the next few years, as well as a shortage of up to 50,000 doctors by 2032. 

These challenges make the work of healthcare staffing more important than ever. But here’s the catch: if healthcare staffing agencies are going to attract excellent candidates, those candidates have to want to interact with them. 

This is where our Top Rated Healthcare Staffing Firms have distinguished themselves. They’ve prioritized creating great experiences and proactively seek feedback, both positive and negative.

What’s more, in a market where technology is on the rise, these firms have proven that technology and the human touch aren’t mutually exclusive. In fact, they leverage the best technology to automate monotonous tasks and empower their recruiters to do what they do best—build and grow relationships with candidates, clients, and placed talent. 

A Top Rated Healthcare Staffing Firm is marked by the following behaviors: 

  • Prioritizing great experiences across candidates, clients, and placed talent
  • Proactively measuring and improving experiences
  • Improving organizational efficiency through automation & real-time insights
  • Elevating their brand and online reputation

Every agency listed below is on the list because they’ve excelled in the areas mentioned above. Join us in congratulating these stand-out leaders for the second half of 2022.
