Wonder what Questions Are Asked in the ASPR Benchmarking Survey?
You’d like to participate in the 2013 ASPR In-House Physician Recruitment Benchmarking Survey, but you aren’t sure what questions are asked? There are four sections for you to complete and one section for your HR department to complete regarding your compensation. There are indicators letting you know when each section is complete. Only those fields indicated with an asterisk (*) are required. You can take a peek at the survey screen shots to see exactly what questions are asked on the survey.
Tip: The searches section generally tends to be the most time-consuming. It is recommended that you gather your search information prior to starting the survey. However, you can save and re-enter at any point, if needed.
Many physician recruiters have questions about the survey, so ASPR has set up a couple of options for you to ask questions. You may submit your questions via the ASPR Benchmarking Survey Q&A Form and your questions will be answered via email. You can also call the Benchmarking Survey Help Line every Wednesday from 2:00 to 2:30 p.m. EST throughout the survey cycle. Just call 866-394-4146 and use the Passcode: 76151010#.
The 2013 ASPR In-House Physician Recruitment Benchmarking Survey is open through the end of March. The Benchmarking Survey will collect 2012 recruitment data from in-house physician recruiters from across the country. All participants will receive the final report and an Organizational Benchmarking Report, and access to the searchable data for free.

February Webinar — “Communication Magic”: How to Erase Conflicts and Confrontations in Recruitment — and in Your Life!
Register today for this FREE webinar, to be held February 27 at 1:00 p.m. EST. Can’t make it? View it later on demand!
Speaker: Judy Rosman, JD, President, RosmanSearch, Inc.
As a recruiter, you are often set up to deal with conflicts or confrontations. Your hospital may not be interested in a physician candidate, and you need to deliver the news. You may be required to ask busy physicians for paperwork they have no desire to fill out. You may have to tell an upset physician that a job offer is being revoked because of professional problems or bad references which the candidate would rather not acknowledge (or may not know about!). Or you may have to tell your C-level executives why you have no good candidates for a particular position you are trying to fill. Learning how to best manage frustration, conflict and confrontation in a way that preserves great relationships, even when others are going to be disappointed or upset, is a skill that will help you as a recruiter and in life! In this webinar, we will learn important strategies for managing people’s frustrations and disappointments, as well as how to turn things around to focus on productive actions and behaviors that will keep your recruitment process running smoothly! This webinar will offer strategies that can help ease the painful parts of recruiting, potentially save you from trouble at work, and may even save your important relationships at home!
Would you like to learn how to perform the following magic tricks?
- Respond to complaints from candidates, physicians, and administrators (and anyone else!) in a way that makes the complainer always feel better.
- Respond to someone who blames you for things in a way that will make them feel friendly toward you.
- Avoid getting into an argument, even when you disagree or you are upset.
- Get out of an argument gracefully if you are in one.
- Use silence to avoid an uncomfortable discussion.
- Create positive action when someone has made a mistake or has not followed through with what they were supposed to do.
- Interact with someone you just know you won’t or don’t like in a positive way.
- Say “no” without upsetting anyone.
- End a conversation with a candidate who won’t stop talking, without appearing rude.
- Deliver bad news without making the recipient upset with you.
- Persuade others to take the actions that must be taken in order to make the recruitment successful.
Knowing what to say in difficult situations will ease you through difficult conversations and help you win friends and respect from co-workers, administrators, executives and candidates! Join the fun in learning “Communication Magic!”
