Profit margins at medical companies are under a lot of scrutiny as the healthcare industry undergoes significant changes. At the same time, medical facilities are having to cope with industry-specific issues like high turnover, lack of administrative training, and high levels of stress.
Medical staffing is already important, even without the looming changes in healthcare, because of the high demand for medical staff, including nurses, physical therapists, medical transcriptionists, and office and billing staff. Staffing firms serve companies that need medical workers by eliminating the search process and delivering workers that fit the company’s needs when they’re needed. such as when a hospital is scrambling for nurses and existing staff is overworked to the point of non-compliance with regulations. Staffing firms that have qualified workers ready to fill positions can take advantage of these immediate needs.

For businesses looking to get a head start, there’s nothing better than having resources to depend on and a group of people with different experiences to give problem-specific advice in an industry that has immediate needs. One example of an issue that @Work staffing franchisees solved together was reliability—since workers aren’t working under the staffing firm’s direct supervision, it becomes easier to abuse time clocks and take advantage of staffing firms and their clients. By using biometric time clocks, @Work solved this problem and increased reliability of workers for clients. Since this was a common problem that more than one @Work franchisee was experiencing, they integrated the technology into the franchise. Now, it’s a standard part of the business model that clients love.
Now that the medical industry is undergoing significant changes, reliable workers provided on short notice are likely to become even more important to medical businesses and healthcare providers. If you’re interested in running a successful staffing firm, consider @Work Medical Staffing as an option in your franchise search.
