Key Partnership Value + Benefits
As their RPO partner, our client asked us to focus on efforts that would help them to reduce their travel nurse usage, ultimately decreasing their premium labor costs. Some of the key efforts Hueman leveraged to help decrease travel nurse usage included:
- Increased hiring days
- Working with our partner to create a Nurse Extern position that allows new nurses to work under a supervisor until they take their NCLEX and receive a nursing license
- Increased sign-on bonuses
- Increased hourly rates based on compensation analysis
