Junior doctors victim of HR failures

The May Bank Holiday left a huge number of doctors in limbo due to an error by the Royal College of Physicians’ recruitment systems and processes.

Approximately 1,500 junior doctors were given incorrect results of recruitment processes after data was wrongly managed by the RCP, resulting in many junior doctors being offered jobs that did not match their expertise and were in fact not at all eligible for. This is a terrifying thought considering the nature of their work.

The importance of HR specialists

This grave but avoidable error by the RCP further stresses the importance of investing the time and money into quality human resource services as provided by specialist HR outsourcing providers such as PeoplePointHR.

You can be safe in the knowledge mistakes like these are avoided through the correct implementation of specialist systems; helping you monitor and manage all HR related areas of your business accurately, whilst all data is secured and safeguarded as per the latest data protection standards.

An error like this can be very distressing for the people involved and can seriously damage the reputation of the business. The junior doctors, in this case, had made life decisions based on their job offers, which they then had to amend due to the RCP blunder.Junior doctors

Avoiding recruitment and personnel management failures

Outsourcing is the best option for companies who don’t have the resources, time or experience to address such crucial – but often overlooked – issues.

Businesses who are worried about their HR processes can undergo a HR health check from expert service provider PeoplePointHR to gain a deeper understanding of their current requirements, helping to assess the need for outsourced human resource services.
