February 23, 2015

Expanded offering in human capital management helps senior care providers address critical hiring needs

CLEVELAND, February 23, 2015 — OnShift, a leader in human capital management software for post-acute care and senior living, today announced new workforce analysis and applicant tracking products for proactive hiring of quality healthcare workers. Building upon OnShift’s flagship scheduling application, the OnShift suite gives providers data-driven insight into hiring needs so they can recruit, hire and schedule staff consistently and efficiently.

News Facts New products include OnShift Insight for proactive hiring recommendations and OnShift Hire for efficient applicant tracking.

  • Senior care providers struggle with identifying hiring needs, which is often reactive or based on guesswork. In fact, 50% of providers rely on waiting until an employee leaves to make the decision to hire[i]. OnShift Insight addresses this challenge by analyzing staffing patterns in the schedule to proactively uncover where staff vacancies exist, so managers can make faster and more informed decisions to hire.
  • With OnShift Insight, organizations access a graphical dashboard to gain a clearer picture of their shortages, pinpoint premium pay hours that can be replaced more cost-effectively, and model what-if scenarios to understand potential hiring impact.
  • Once an open position is identified and approved for hire, the job requisition can be automatically created in OnShift Hire to jumpstart the hiring process.
  • With OnShift Hire, organizations access extensive sourcing and recruiting tools to build a candidate pool, manage talent acquisition online from contact-to-hire, and track progress throughout the entire hiring lifecycle.
  • With 52% caregiver turnover[ii] and over 70,000 vacant direct care staff positions[iii] in long-term care, hiring and retaining quality talent is a top priority. OnShift Insight and OnShift Hire, together with OnShift Schedule, help providers make informed hiring decisions, efficiently acquire talent, and staff consistently for higher satisfaction, lower costs and quality care.
