The coronavirus pandemic has affected people in every nook and corner of the world. In April 2020, there were approximately 1,741,621 new cases across 210 countries, which also caused 106,670 deaths. Today on a 7-day average, there are currently 1,23,792 new cases in India, in the US the number of new cases on a 7-day average is 14,809. All over the world, the 7-day average of new cases is 4,38,895.
Although the numbers have decreased, needless to say, Covid-19 cannot be taken lightly. Amidst this crisis, those that have stood against odds to risk their own lives to save others have been the healthcare force. From doctors and nurses to community workers, to ambulance drivers to hospital assistants – they have all (amid the fear of sanitation) continued to work as ‘frontline corona warriors’. Even as more than half the world was locked inside homes, they kept going forward performing their duties.

In our small way, we aim to support your efforts of protecting and treating patients in this pandemic.

As a gesture of our support towards providing to meet the increasing demand, we have extended our free service until 31st December 2021.

What Does TurboHire Free4Hospitals Initiative Include?
In response to the coronavirus pandemic, under-staffed hospitals are facing the challenge of attending to the unprecedented increase in patients. To add to that, the healthcare community has also been working for months now to find an effective antidote to the virus. Considering the dire need to support the healthcare system with the right technology to empower relief efforts, we have rolled out a ton of features.
1. By leveraging the intelligence of a powerful Applicant Tracking System (ATS), via this free service, one can discover suitable healthcare professionals from (selective) job boards.
3. We also do realize that walk-in/in-person interviews are not applicable right now, which is why you can utilize TurboHire’s automated interview feature to help you shortlist the applicants for further evaluation.
4. When you want to track the progress of your hiring, you can structure it via our recruiting report tool to ensure you are hiring the most suitable healthcare professionals.
TurboHire’s Free4Hospitals initiative is free for hospitals as organisations, and not for candidates. If you are a healthcare professional employed by a hospital you can officially onboard your organisation by following the necessary process.
Talent Network – Social Initiative During Pandemic by TurboHire
During this time last year, during the first wave of Covid-19, TurboHire announced Talent Network, a social initiative that was taken to aggregate jobs and candidates. With Talent Network, recruiters were able to post their openings to get candidate recommendations, leveraging artificial intelligence (AI). Candidates also had the chance to share their resumes to increase their chances of getting a job that matched their skill set. The idea was ‘to connect people who have lost jobs and find jobs at growing companies’.
The initiative gained popularity with the blessing of Global VC Leader. A large number of companies also became a part of the network such as PhonePe, Dream11, Rapido, Freshworks, CureFit, Delhivery, Vedantu to name a few.
In light of the second wave, we want to revisit our efforts to extend further support and this time to the selfless healthcare workers, who, in spite of being highly vulnerable to the virus have dedicated their services. Our small initiative will be a great tribute to highlight the heroic efforts of the healthcare force.
