SkillSurvey to Present Research on Contingent Workers at National Association for Health Care Recruitment IMAGE 2014 Conference

Wayne, PA (PRWEB) July 22, 2014

SkillSurvey Inc., the leading provider of confidential, science-based reference assessments that help employers make better hiring decisions, will be delivering a research presentation focused on how to improve the engagement and retention of contingent workers at the National Association for Health Care Recruitment’s IMAGE 2014 Conference being held in Orlando, Florida on July 22-25, 2014. The presentation will include a case study featuring Metro Health, a hospital in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Co-presenters will include Erika Duncan, Vice President, Human Resources, Metro Health, and Cynthia A. Hedricks, Ph.D., Chief Analytics Officer, SkillSurvey.

“We have taken a deep dive into MetroHealth’s journey toward hiring better qualified, more engaged, and more committed contingent workers, and look forward to sharing what we learned,” said Cynthia Hedricks, SkillSurvey. “We believe these results will prove useful as many healthcare institutions continue to supplement their workforce by hiring contingent workers and need to ensure they’re using effective methods to evaluate and hire the best candidates for their organization.”

“By using SkillSurvey’s Pre-Hire 360® solution to improve our reference checking process, we have learned which factors are indicative of on-the-job success,” said Erika Duncan, Metro Health. “We’ve seen improved job satisfaction and decreased turnover among our contingent workforce – and we look forward to sharing with our peers how we got there,” she continued.

Metro Health is a 208-bed general acute-care osteopathic teaching hospital, serving over 130,000 patients in and around Grand Rapids, Michigan. The hospital has 2,300 full time employees and 800 contractors. In 2013, it was named one of the National Best & Brightest Companies to Work For.

SkillSurvey’s Pre-Hire 360® allows hiring managers to evaluate a job candidate’s past performance based on answers to job-specific survey questions provided by prior managers, co-workers and direct reports. SkillSurvey has more than 375 job-specific surveys that help recruiters better assess candidates before interviewing and narrowing their applicant pool.
