Recruitment and Retention Plan

Recruitment and retention of health care professionals is always challenging. It seems that staffing needs always outpace the supply of professionals. However, successful health care organizations do find a way to identify the right people, select them, hire them, onboard them, and retain them over time.

As a director of human resources for your own hospital, how will you plan for successful recruitment and retention of staff? What will be the key elements of your plan? Create a recruitment and retention plan. In your plan, please describe:

· the process for budgeting,

· recruitment, and

· selection and hiring of staff members.

Finally, explain how effective onboarding improves staff retention and reduces overall costs.
