From automated hiring processes to remote work, healthcare facilities continue to feel the increasingly complex regulated challenge of maintaining compliance while efficiently backfilling urgent vacancies. Adhering to the diverse federal, state and local requirements are not optional but mandates. With the emergence of flexible and technologically advanced hiring solutions, organizations are changing the way they do business to protect themselves throughout the hiring process: from recruitment through onboarding.

In this program, Eric Higginbotham of Global HR Research, Pam Devata of Seyfarth Shaw and Richard Juknavorian from HealthcareSource will discuss:

  • How legislation is complicating employment screening and the technology that delivers it
  • How technology helps employers to reduce risks in talent acquisition
  • The five “must-haves” in your employment screening technology
