The healthcare industry faces exponential growth, increasing pressures to attract and hire talent quickly yet safely

IRVINE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--HireRight, a leading provider of global employment background checks, drug and health screening, and electronic Form I-9 and E-Verify solutions, today announced healthcare industry findings from its 2017 Annual Employment Screening Benchmark survey. HireRight’s 2017 Annual Healthcare Spotlight report presents valuable insights into the industry’s best practices in hiring, background screening and employment trends.

The healthcare industry is growing faster than any other segment of the U.S. economy and by 2024 will replace the state and local government major sector as the single largest employing industry in the U.S., according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. The HireRight survey found 83% of healthcare industry respondents expect their workforce to increase in the next 12 months, and 30% project a 6% or greater growth rate. As a result, the industry faces significant challenges finding qualified healthcare workers. This has led to investments in new ways to attract and retain qualified employees, creating a greater emphasis on the need to provide an excellent hiring and onboarding experience. FULL RELEASE
