Hackensack Meridian Health was formed in July 2016 when two of the leading New Jersey not-for-profit healthcare organisations merged. The combined healthcare network comprises 33,000 personnel, 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 personnel 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 personnel, 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.

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.
