Staffing shortages and the global pandemic have been a recurring partnership since COVID-19 first made global headlines. Now, years after the onset of the pandemic, businesses are looking to get back to life as normal, but that isn’t as easy as it may sound. International staffing shortages have impacted places throughout the United States as well as the rest of the world, particularly hurting places like the Philippines.
Established in 2004, to help address staffing shortages in the medical field, Health Carousel has been utilizing its extensive network of resources to provide staffing solutions to address these physician shortages. Through a series of branded divisions, Health Carousel helps healthcare organizations meet their temporary, short-term, and long-term hiring needs.
Let’s take a closer look at how Health Carousel is taking on the battle against staffing shortages through innovative and integrated staffing solutions.
Building an International Pool of Talent
One thing that was made abundantly clear during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic was its impact on the planet at an international level. From the Philippines to Italy and back to America, staffing shortages due to exhaustion and attrition were impossible to ignore. Due to logistical problems and a lack of training capabilities relating to the pandemic, the Philippines had been forced to withhold nearly 20,000 professionals from graduation until July 2021.
While focused on COVID-19, Health Carousel International gives healthcare professionals the chance to look at new opportunities while expanding their horizons to facilities around the world. Through the PassportUSA program, an international recruitment service, Health Carousel connects its talented pool of nurses, therapists, and medical technologists with the facilities that can best utilize their talents. Health Carousel said of its services that its professionals feature, “Training that exceeds common standards for practice in the United States.”
Due to their rigorous quality standards and efforts, Health Carousel International has been rewarded by The Joint Commission with the Gold Seal of Approval for healthcare staffing services.
Understanding Health Carousel Philippines
Health Carousel Philippines is an overseas Employment Administration recruitment agency operating under the Health Carousel umbrella. A leading provider of healthcare workers to both the United States and other global nations, Health Carousel Philippines is looking to help the nation reset itself after the worst waves of the COVID-19 pandemic.
As the Philippines struggled to maintain a qualified workforce in the healthcare field due to burnout and high turnover, Health Carousel Philippines and Health Carousel partnered up for the 2021 NLE Masterclass Training. In doing so, the initiative was able to offer key training and educational insights to professionals who had faced several months of hardships and delays due to the global pandemic.
Another feather in the cap of Health Carousel Philippines is its effort with the DAISY movement. DAISY stands for Diseases Attacking the Immune System. The DAISY system teaches professionals in an online learning environment. Other online outreach programs include seminars and training on how to cope with the difficulties presented by the COVID-19 crisis.
