May 4, 2023 – In its ongoing efforts to recruit talented professionals to join its team of highly skilled professionals, Georgian Bay General Hospital (GBGH) is hosting an Open House and Hiring Event on Tuesday, May 16 and Wednesday, May 17 from 2:00 – 6:00 p.m. Anyone who would like to pursue a position with GBGH or is interested in a casual conversation to learn more about the hospital is welcome to attend. Interviews – either informational or specific to a position – will be available in-person and virtually.
“GBGH’s consistent priority is to have our hospital function with a full staff complement, but that has become challenging since the beginning of the pandemic,” says Angela Wiggins, vice president, People & Culture and chief human resources officer, GBGH. “We’ve been successful in recruiting for some areas of the hospital which have traditionally been difficult positions to fill, such as Pharmacy and Environmental Services. We’ve also been able to hire 27 nurses in the past six months, yet we still encounter health human resource shortages and are continually seeking creative ways to effectively recruit. Through this Open House and Hiring Event, we are specifically looking to recruit for the Lab and Security, as well as nurses and personal support workers for inpatient units, Emergency and critical care, but welcome the opportunity to speak with any individual interested in our organization.”
Candidates who attend in person will also have an opportunity to tour the hospital, learn more about its culture as a learning organization, and hear about the GBGH work-life experience directly from the ‘Crew’ of current team members. Additionally, there is no résume required to be interviewed.
Interviews will be available in person on a drop-in basis or scheduled virtually (register here for virtual – https://forms.office.com/r/ANDrsnZQJY) with candidates’ potential leaders. Having leaders present and engaged in the interview process during the event enables hospital leadership to make timely decisions about hiring. Successful candidates will leave the event with a job offer for their consideration.
To provide potential candidates with some insight into the hospital leading up to the event, GBGH will profile some of the departments and leaders overseeing the areas of focus for recruitment. This information can be found on GBGH’s social media channels between now and the event.
