Whitman Partners at OR Manager Conference

Join Whitman Partners for latest search technology and Happy Hour!

Whitman Partners is the preeminent search firm for placement of Directors of Surgical Services, thus the OR Manager Conference is an invaluable event for networking with perioperative leaders from around the nation. It is also an opportunity to demonstrate our latest advancements for not only recruiting on open vacancies, but for providing resources, career assistance, and industry knowledge for both hospital administrators and directors alike.

“I really love meeting candidates face to face,” says Jim Carver, Client Partner. “Many folks we have known for years but some we have never met in person so it’s nice to have this opportunity. I also love meeting the client hospitals and hearing about what trends they are seeing and discussing different recruiting strategies they are using to land quality candidates. I like to know what they are experiencing in compensation packages, what new skill set they might be looking for, and what needs they have for outsourcing searches.”

This year Whitman Partners will unveil its new tool–the WP Search Portal. The portal allows hospitals to track search progress, review candidate submission, manage advanced vetting, and set up interviews. For candidates, the portal is their conduit for applying for jobs, monitoring hiring progress, updating their resume and profile data, researching jobs, registering for benefits such as CSSM Test Prep, and sharing knowledge with fellow directors.

“The marriage of data, research, and technology is what makes Whitman Partners successful,” says Kent Van Vleet, Client Partner & IT manager. “When you combine the portal with our 20-person search team, resources like our magazine, partnerships, comprehensive job map, and Whitman Index and website, we put more knowledge and power into the hands of our hospital clients and directors across the country.”
