Workforce Demand Forecaster Tool: Health Human Resources’ Recruitment Crystal Ball?
Kaiyan Fu, Susan Allen and Ella Ferris

As the growing human resource (HR) shortage continues to affect healthcare organizations, new approaches are explored to shift traditionally reactive hiring practices into proactive gear. To help quantitative forecasting data drive recruitment planning, six Ontario healthcare organizations and one academic partner teamed up to investigate the applicability of an Excel-based forecasting tool, the Workforce Demand Forecaster developed by the Advisory Board Company (the Tool). The Tool is a data collection spreadsheet that stores historical HR data, consolidates multiple quantitative variables that impact future workforce needs (e.g., budgeted full-time equivalent (FTE/headcounts), turnover, transfers etc.), and enables one- to five-year forecasts to inform recruitment strategies.

Longwoods has launched a new JobBoard program at jobs.longwoods.com

With this new system Recruiters will be able to post their own jobs, add photos, files or videos, use the “Clone Job” function to easily upload multiple job postings, and much more.

All you need to do is go to jobs.longwoods.com and create a profile, choose a subscription package and then you are ready to post a job.

As the site grows so will a resume database that you can search for suitable candidates.

Please note: As the site is now a post-it-yourself board you get the advantage of lower rates. We have developed an new pricing structure. A basic 30-day job post is $300.00 net + HST. If you wish to add your job title to the eLetter blast on Tuesdays you can for an additional fee. You can also feature your job title on the home page of Longwoods.com for little extra. There is a 10 post package that saves you even more.

Give it a try and let me know what you think.
