Hackensack Meridian Health

How one healthcare network hired 4,000 employees while merging HR systems

Hackensack Meridian Health was formed in July 2016 when two of the leading New Jersey not-for-profit healthcare organizations merged. The combined healthcare network comprises 33,000 employees, 13 hospitals, and more than 120 ambulatory care centers providing a complete range of medical services, research, and life-enhancing care.

Hackensack Meridian Health's approach

Following the merger, Hackensack Meridian Health needed to unify its recruiting technologies in order to provide employees with a single seamless platform, and candidates with a consistent and easy-to-use experience. The migration had to be accomplished without disrupting the hiring of 4,000 new employees, many of whom were sourced from former patients.

The central challenge was to integrate all the supplementary talent acquisition tools –including candidate assessments, background screening, and reference checking –into the configurable iCIMS Talent Cloud, which in turn, had to be integrated into Hackensack Meridian Health’s three existing human resource and payroll platforms.

With iCIMS, Hackensack Meridian Health can:

Centralize talent acquisition software into a single unified hub

Integrate recruiting software tools

Increase recruiters’ productivity and fill jobs faster

Use one source for reporting and analytics

Reduce costly data errors stemming from using multiple systems

Consistently deliver an exceptional candidate experience

Set up to scale recruiting to support the expanding healthcare network

Hackensack Meridian Health centralized all talent acquisition software in the iCIMS Talent Cloud, without interrupting the hiring of 4,000 professionals.

This was the first time I’ve seen something this intricate pulled off without a glitch. The way the iCIMS Talent Cloud is configured to integrate and run smoothly with other providers, and at the same time deliver a consistent experience for our end-users, is a huge win.
