Spherion and AMN Healthcare Partner to Serve Healthcare Providers

Spherion Corporation said it has entered into a strategic alliance with AMN Healthcare to jointly provide RPO services to healthcare organizations across the U.S. Spherion will manage the sourcing, screening, and on-boarding of candidates for non-clinical positions, while AMN will focus on finding the most qualified candidates for clinical positions, which include nurses, allied health professionals, and physicians. Both firms will also continue to pursue individual RPO business as well.
 
As today’s population ages and the demand for health-related services increases, healthcare organizations face mounting challenges to recruit and on-board top talent. Together, Spherion and AMN will help address this issue by managing the entire recruitment, screening, and selection process for organizations such as hospitals, medical centers, and clinics.  Spherion and AMN will also offer RPO services to insurance and pharmaceutical companies which are increasingly leveraging RPO as part of their hiring strategy.  
 
Spherion and AMN Healthcare made the decision to create this alliance based on their significant track records and history of recruiting tens of thousands of professionals each year, the companies said. The combined experience of both Spherion and AMN will bring added resources to healthcare organizations looking to improve efficiency across their recruitment process and place more emphasis on patient care.
 
“Developing an alliance with AMN Healthcare was a natural fit for our RPO division as we see the healthcare industry as one of our key areas of focus,” said Rebecca Callahan, Senior Vice President of Spherion’s Recruitment Process Outsourcing division. “AMN is a recognized leader in healthcare staffing and RPO services. The breadth and depth of our parallel offerings will enable healthcare organizations to more efficiently address the recruiting challenges they are currently facing.”
 
Ralph Henderson, president of AMN Healthcare’s Nurse Staffing and Recruitment Process Outsourcing divisions, said “RPO will alleviate many of the growing pains healthcare organizations are currently facing from a human capital standpoint. By aligning with an organization of Spherion’s caliber, we are joining forces to help clients address talent shortages and find the best candidates for their organizations in both clinical and non-clinical roles.”
 
The recruitment teams will be based at Spherion and AMN’s main recruitment centers in the U.S., as well as on-site with the client. Spherion and AMN will provide recruitment staff, applicant tracking, assessment technology, clinical quality services and real-time reporting for all RPO engagements. The alliance will benefit clients with a wide range of recruitment needs, ranging from short-term recruiting projects to multi-year assignments.
