The home health care industry is growing quickly, with Americans projected to spend $5.7 trillion on home health care by 2026. But despite the growth, the industry faces significant challenges with securing top talent and, as a result, maintaining profitability. This is due to many factors, including a record-low unemployment rate, baby boomers retiring and current job seekers having a negative perception of working in home health.
To help home health care organizations overcome this talent shortage, Hireology developed Applicant Engine to find and bring quality applicants directly to our customers. Applicant Engine sources applicants across various job boards, niche employment networks, local classifieds and social media automatically – saving time that would have otherwise been spent managing expensive one-off job boards.
Since Applicant Engine launched in 2017, it has driven an increase in quality applicants and significant cost savings for home health care organizations. We recently pulled together a case study featuring several key metrics. Some highlights include:
- 2.49x more quality applicants sourced with Applicant Engine compared to traditional job boards
- 43% cost savings in the total cost per hire across all roles
