It is well known that, unlike any other economic sector, the health sector is one of the few economic scenarios in which almost all its members occupy roles that are directly or indirectly linked to the management of people, i.e., this type of work could be described as “human health managers,” a situation that makes it one of the most complex scenarios for a physician recruiter, and the reasoning is simple: this is the only economic activity dedicated to dealing with problems related to one of the most delicate components of daily life, such as health because without it, any life project cannot be realized.
A physician recruiter must know how an organization incorporates the appropriate personnel to fill the various positions. This process has four stages:
- Job needs analysis (analysis and evaluation of positions);
- Recruitment (internal and external);
- Selection; and
- incorporation into the organization.
The physician recruiter is in charge of this process, for which they must take on the challenge of selecting candidates that meet the characteristics required for the position.
The interaction starts with the examination of the position that should be filled, either as of late made or to keep up with its activity; then, at that point, the quest for applicants inside or outside the association is done; then, at that point, the competitor who meets the attributes needed by the position is chosen. Lastly, the individual picked gets an acceptance to the work and the organization.
Enlistment and choice of staff should be remembered for the essential arrangement because having faculty appropriate for the activity is critical because of the need to have the right human resources to make the organization a severe association.
A personnel recruitment process must be based on a series of tests to determine which candidate meets the requirements to perform the vacant position to be filled efficiently. The tests are designed based on the needs of the department requesting to fill the position, taking into account the company’s objectives and growth goals, factors that help define the characteristics, knowledge, skills, and potential expected of the personnel hired by the company. It is worth mentioning at this point that, contrary to what common sense might dictate, on many occasions, the most suitable candidate to fill the vacancy is not the one with the most preparation or experience, since the person who seems perfect may not have the psychological and social profile or the personal interests that are conducive to good performance and performance in the company.
We must not forget that the importance of the recruitment and selection process finds its relevance in the fact that as a result of it, the human element on which the sustainability of the economic activity will depend is incorporated into the organization, it is not about choosing the best candidate according to the particular situation of the organization, It is not a matter of selecting the best candidate according to the specific case of the organization, but instead of choosing the person whose actions will make the organization’s projects sustainable, which are carried out in the short, medium and long term, therefore we must take into account that mistakes in the incorporation of people will generally be materialized immediately through the behavior of the chosen one, and unfortunately most of the time with the corresponding economic impact.
Many factors that impact the activities of a company depend on a good recruitment and selection process and to ensure that the personnel hired contribute efficiently to the development and growth of the company to achieve its business objectives.
