Finding experienced professionals to fill important roles is challenging for many healthcare companies, but more firms could increase their recruitment efforts in 2013 to bolster their work teams.??

The healthcare market is expanding, and more employers are gearing up their hiring for the new year. Healthcare Finance News reports that a recent survey of U.S. healthcare companies showed that 22 percent of firms intend to add full-time, permanent workers in 2013 – a 3 percent increase from 2012. Meanwhile, 23 percent of study participants stated that they currently have vacancies and are actively searching for qualified contributors to fill these roles.??

“Basically it comes down to one thing, and that’s general supply and demand,” healthcare expert Jason Lovelace told the news source. “There are more positions today then there are people.”

Lovelace noted that there will always be a demand for healthcare professionals, which could lead more people to pursue employment and educational opportunities in this sector. The healthcare segment is considered a recession-proof industry by many experts, and if more firms increase their hiring, valuable professionals could help these firms improve their operations.??
