A leading healthcare staffing agency and RPO provider uses Indeed for increased flexibility, brand visibility, conversion rates and candidate volume.
Over the last 15 years, PPR Healthcare Staffing has helped a national client base of hospitals and healthcare institutions overcome their toughest talent acquisition challenges, made thousands of successful placements, and become a leading provider of RPO services to numerous healthcare brands.
To help place candidates for its clients’ hard-to-fill and high-volume allied health and nursing requisitions, PPR sought an advertising channel that could provide a steady flow of new applicants while meeting the unique needs of its various recruitment brands. “We’re recruiting for some of the hardest to fill, niche, clinical openings in the U.S. Some of the locations are rural and many of the candidates we target are passive job seekers. The combination of Indeed’s large pool of candidates and focus on delivering the most relevant results gives PPR the visibility needed to be found by the right candidates,” said Dave Auchter, VP-Marketing & New Media, PPR Healthcare Staffing.

PPR sponsored its jobs on Indeed to reach candidates for two primary job sets. “We have bulk, low-margin, jobs – every one of which is important. We also have exclusive, recruit to order jobs,” Auchter said. Indeed made it simple for PPR to set up individual campaigns and prioritize job sets. “It’s much easier to manage multiple campaigns on Indeed compared to other recruitment advertising tools,” Auchter added.
The premium placement of Sponsored Jobs on Indeed also provided increased visibility for the PPR staffing brand. “There’s no question that we’re getting not just more candidates, but new candidates, for both our hard-to-fill and volume positions,” Auchter said. “Because Indeed’s reach is so vast, the brand exposure we get is unmatched.”
Like many staffing firms, PPR used to post its jobs on large and niche job boards. With Indeed, PPR receives better conversion rates and a lower average cost per applicant than the combined performance of multiple job boards. “Why post to over a dozen job boards when Indeed gives me better results?” Auchter said.
He added, “Advertising on Indeed means you have the best chance to make your jobs easily accessible to your target candidates. Over an extended period of time our campaign metrics indicate Indeed can send PPR twice as many qualified candidates than Google AdWords, often at half the cost.”
Indeed regularly provides PPR Healthcare with a:
- 5.04 percent conversion rate (clicks to applicants)
- $20 cost per applicant
