Finding Solutions Often Begins with Finding Talent

August 12, 2013

WOODSTOCK, GA – For HME providers looking to attract the best talent, it’s not enough to place an ad in the help wanted section of the local newspaper. Even some familiar online tools are losing their punch.

According to Adam Burkhart (pictured), new business coordinator at, real-time leads, e-mail marketing, banner adds, and technologically advanced resume databases with faceted search functionality for more than 600,000 resumes are more effective.

In the fight to get the best candidates, Burkhart advises companies to capitalize on every advantage. “Make lifestyle part of your employee recruitment offer,” he says. “Many employees are just as concerned about quality of life as they are about the amount of money a position offers. If you’re fortunate enough to be in an area with great skiing, beaches, extensive hiking/biking trails, excellent golf courses, or other attractive features, be sure to play them up when you’re trying to attract employees.”

Promise big, but not too big. “Avoid over embellishment and over committing,” warns Burkhart. “And remember with networking it’s not always who you know, but who knows you.”

The® network is owned by Healthcare Staffing Innovations, LLC, but company officials point at that they are not a staffing firm, nor are they associated with any specific staffing firm. Founded by a former health care recruiter and executive with more than a decade of staffing experience, the® network was created from an insider’s perspective. 

Medtrade recently launched the HME Job Market powered by Healthcare This new employment resource is designed for home health professionals to network collectively with the HME industry/health care organizations and recruiters nationwide. This powerful recruitment tool can assist HME providers and manufacturers in locating the best talent to fill critical positions.
