5 Shareworthy Facts About Our Education Partnerships

Published on April 11, 2024

Sometimes, it's not easy to find the right people. Whether you have a company-wide recruiting team or self-recruiting departments, you know the value of finding staff who can take on key roles immediately.

One of the best ways to hire your team is through an employer partnership. With MedCerts, you can get the right people for the job the first time.

How Does an Employer Education Partnership Work?

An education partnership lets you invest in your staff and watch as they develop the skills you need. Through the MedCerts Train-and-Hire model, you select your future employees and cover the cost of their training. It's like creating a custom employee who knows what you want and arrives ready to fill that vital niche. With Upskilling, we train your current employees to bring them up to the current standards. You save on recruiting costs while fostering a thriving workplace and solid company culture that invests in its team.

5 Facts About MedCerts’ Education Partnerships

Need more proof? Here are five facts that show how much value a MedCerts partnership brings to your organization.

1. MedCerts Partners With Over 500 Employers

When you partner with MedCerts, you join a growing number of satisfied medical employers around the United States. With the right healthcare team, you can achieve your business objectives and meet the demands of an aging population. The Train-and-Hire model connects you to talented employees who bring experience and dedication to your business.

2. Employers Save on Staff Training

It’s no secret that hiring is expensive. When you partner with MedCerts, you can eliminate many of the costs associated with finding, training and onboarding new staff. Traditional recruiters may do the work for you, but they demand a lot of compensation for their efforts. In fact, the average recruiter charges 15% to 30% of your new employee’s earnings in year one.

For a phlebotomy technician who earns $37,000 a year, you’d pay a traditional recruiter anywhere from $5,500 to $11,000. With MedCerts, your costs are around $3,000 — a $1,000 fee and $2,000 for the training.

3. MedCerts-Trained Employees Have Staying Power

MedCerts is a proud partner of Sanford Health, a large rural U.S. health system. Over 300 of their medical professionals have received training through MedCerts and have gone on to use their skills to bolster their employer’s top-rated record. Several years later, an impressive 86% of those employees continue to serve patients of Sanford Health.

4. In-Demand Training Leads to Retention

The right training means employees have what it takes to succeed in their roles. Day-to-day functions move as they should with an experienced team. Plus, your team remains in demand, and each team member adds their skills to healthcare operations. The result is a team you want to retain.

Community Health Systems works with MedCerts through the education partnership and Train-and-Hire model. After one year in this lucrative partnership, the organization still has 100% of the trained employees on staff.

5. MedCerts’ Employer Partnerships Have a Large Alumni Base

As more students graduate from employer partnerships, word gets around. Sometimes, employees reach out independently to upskill. Other times, employers create training programs to upskill their team or hire top talent with the training they need.

Since its inception, MedCerts has trained over 7,700 medical professionals through these in-demand partnerships.
