A Medical Practice’s Partnership with City Personnel

A large medical practice in Rhode Island was facing the challenge of hiring due to an industry-wide talent shortage. With each office being responsible for their own hiring, the organization struggled to quickly fill their urgent job vacancies. Desperate for a solution, the organization sought out City Personnel as their trusted partner to tackle these pressing staffing needs head-on.

In this case study, we will respect our client's privacy by referring to them as 'the Client.'

  2. Talent Sourcing: In 2020, the talent acquisition landscape was further complicated by the pandemic, particularly for roles such as medical assistants, receptionists, and billers.

Despite these hurdles, City Personnel leveraged their vast network and expertise in talent acquisition and sourcing to diligently scour the market for potential candidates. They specifically targeted those who met the criteria outlined in the needs assessment.
