Since LRS partnered with TextUs in 2017, healthcare travelers have become even more phone-averse. Whether they’re with patients, working night shifts, or traveling to a new assignment, their jobs make them notoriously difficult to get on the phone.
“In most cases, they just won’t answer a phone call,” said Buckley. “But they’ll respond to a text in no time flat.” TextUs helped LRS get ahold of candidates faster and communicate with them exactly the way they want to touch base.
Before TextUs, LRS recruiters were wasting a lot of time playing phone tag with candidates who weren’t even qualified for the positions they were filling. Recruiters would regularly spend 15-20 minutes following up with a candidate who just wasn’t a good fit.
“You can qualify multiple candidates at once,” said Buckley. “You aren’t locked down in a single dead-end phone call. You can have a quick conversation over text and find out everything you need to know before you even get on the phone.”
