Sourcing and engaging healthcare professionals
CHRISTUS Health employs over 45,000 people across 600 centers, including long-term care facilities, community hospitals and walk-in clinics. As Director of Talent Acquisition, Ron Croy, made it his mission to establish CHRISTUS Health as an employer of choice while finding a way to more effectively source and engage healthcare professionals. Ron was especially eager to find a way to better connect with nurses to meet the continuing needs of the business.
Once Ron discovered that LinkedIn was home to millions of healthcare professionals, he set out to build CHRISTUS Health’s employer brand across the platform. Ron’s team curated content on their LinkedIn Career Page geared towards nursing professionals and invested in LinkedIn Recruiter, LinkedIn Jobs, and Pipeline Builder to source needed talent.
