PORTLAND, OR, October 13, 2021 /24-7PressRelease/ — Whitman Partners, a search firm dedicated to recruiting Directors of Surgical Services in interim and permanent roles, has released a report, Diversity Hiring in Healthcare 2021.
This report was prepared for a panel discussion, “The Inclusive OR”: Roles and Goals to Creating Diverse Teams. It was presented by Whitman Partners at San Diego’s OR Manager Business Management Conference.
Whitman Partners has added “BIPOC perioperative leaders to know” to its Awards list. This program aims to recognize leaders with diverse backgrounds and give voice to different perspectives and experiences.
These conversations have revealed that it is crucial to ensure an inclusive workplace. Riley Research Associates conducted the report and it supports what many BIPOC leaders experienced.
The report surveyed 100 healthcare professionals across the United States involved in the recruitment, hiring, and training of individuals in perioperative positions. The respondents were employed in hospitals, adult care facilities, physician-owned medical centres, and surgery centers. The topics covered skill development, mentoring, training, as well as the dearth of BIPOC professionals at C-level.
For 71% of respondents, leadership commitment was deemed the most crucial factor for creating a diverse and inclusive organization. For organizations with 700+ employees, leadership was valued even more at 85%.
Additional challenges are the lack of qualified BIPOC candidates for C-level and director positions for close to half (47%) of the respondents and the need to create a higher level of awareness among BIPOC healthcare professionals of career advancement opportunities in perioperative medicine.
