With multiple state-level contracts for monitoring home healthcare services to fulfill, Sandata needed seasoned functional project managers and quality managers fast! These candidates had to be PMP and Scrum Master Certified with experience in healthcare payer processes and claims processing.

The Challenge

Sandata’s project needed cross-functional IT professionals with highly specialized skills and training who could get up to speed quickly and begin producing results in weeks, not months.

Their internal HR department was not experienced enough or dialed into the networks with this type of tech talent and were struggling to find qualified people to meet looming deadlines.

The Solution

The Doyle Group (DG) team sat down with Sandata and dug deep into what they really needed and who their ideal next hires needed to be. Internal recruiting departments often do not understand the technical expertise required for specific IT positions. DG recruiters live and breathe technology, stay up on trends and new developments and are always actively placing highly sought-after candidates in specialized positions. They know who and where the top tech talent is and if they will be able to fill the roles Sandata needed for this project to stay ahead of their deadlines.

A Multi-Directional Approach

  • With a thorough understanding of who exactly they must have in terms of skill, experience and personality the search began. The roles that needed to be filled required highly specialized individuals, meaning fewer candidates to choose from. As project staffing consultants, DG already knew who was in Sandata’s IT department, what type of managerial style the candidates would be working under with a good understanding of the company culture.
  • Most highly specialized technology professionals don’t monitor tech job boards, they wait for the right opportunity to find them. If they are actively looking it is through their professional networks. A multi-directional approach was implemented to find the people needed who could work together under the tight deadlines with the specialized skills required:
    • reaching out to key members of our professional network
    • search campaigns on specialized job boards
    • social media-based professional skill searches
