Top five reasons healthcare managers fill positions as soon as possible:
"If I have vacancies go unfilled too long, it makes me look like I'm not trying."
"If I wait too long my administrator will think I don't need a full staff."
"My current employees are not happy about working understaffed."
"As long as I'm working short, I'm expected to do things that a manager shouldn't have to do."
"When we fill positions right away it helps me keep things the way the they've always been."
Top five reasons empowered healthcare managers fill positions when they're good and ready:
"Not everyone who walks in the door gets to work here."
"My staff deserves for me to be exceedingly selective about who I bring into their midst."
"My current staff knows in order for me to find the perfect addition to our team, they'll have to pick up the slack for a while."
"I don't mind stepping in and helping out until the perfect applicant comes forth. I'd much rather work along side of my staff than deal with the chaos that comes from hiring the wrong person."
"Every vacancy is an opportunity to assess how we might do things better."
