Staffing solutions you need for stable, happy teams.
High turnover rates and skill shortages have nearly crippled some healthcare organizations who struggle to maintain a stable and skilled workforce. But a staffing solution exists – and we can help. With deep industry experience, we’ve seen first-hand how staff augmentation, IT consulting and other solutions can improve employee retention while addressing skill gaps.
Curious to learn more? Read on to see how healthcare organizations can benefit from strategies that build strong teams of software engineers, developers and IT support.
Keep the staff, ditch the stress
Healthcare technology is evolving faster than ever. Advances in software and digital solutions that drive changes in patient care and clinical workflows are a boon to the industry. But these advances are only as good as your IT department’s capacity to evolve. To make strides, your healthcare organization needs skilled IT professionals as well as engineers, software developers and support staff — all of whom are difficult to recruit and retain.
The culprit? Intense competition makes for a high turnover rate of skilled employees. It leads to frequent job hopping as employees move from one organization to the other in search of better opportunities and benefits. The right staffing solutions will keep specialized skills under one roof — yours.
Keep your staff healthy
At RGC Digital, we offer innovative staffing solutions that help curb employee turnover.
Staff augmentation supplements your organization’s existing workforce with external IT professionals on a temporary or project-based basis. Quickly scale your teams up or down, depending on your needs, all without long-term, full-time employee commitments. By giving healthcare organizations access to a vast pool of IT talent with diverse skill sets, this staffing solution also relieves pressure. Instead of packing on new tasks, existing employees can remain focused on core responsibilities and avoid burnout. Healthy staff management leads to better employee retention and productivity.
IT consulting is another way to overcome turnover in the healthcare IT sector. Partner with a firm, and you’ve got access to expert guidance and support without long-term employment contracts. Consultants can provide valuable insights into the latest industry trends and best practices. They also help your organization stay ahead of the competition while you adapt to new technologies. Hire them to assist with project management and implementation so that your new IT initiatives run smoothly and effectively.
Staffing solutions to keep it fresh
When you give IT professionals the opportunity to work on a diverse range of projects, you engage them in a more dynamic work environment. This strategy leads to increased job satisfaction and loyalty. Why leave a good thing when you’ve already got it? Employees will be less likely to seek opportunities elsewhere. Keep them on your side by fostering a supportive environment.
At RGC Digital, we also encourage healthcare organizations to implement ongoing training and development programs for IT staff. Investing in the continuous professional growth reaps big rewards – you help your staff stay up-to-date on trends while also providing them with a reason to stick around. Professional development helps your organization attract and retain top IT talent for a more skilled and stable workforce. Once you’ve hired a great staff, prioritize their development.
Are you ready to leverage staffing solutions to help your healthcare organization grow? Staff augmentation and IT consulting can help you maintain a thriving IT department by mitigating the negative effects of turnover and skill shortages.
