New Orleans-based staffing agency, Delta Personnel, celebrates its 50th anniversary by adding healthcare recruitment to its service offerings. The agency, which opened its doors in 1968, specializes in temporary, temp-to-hire and executive recruiting in the food and hospitality, professional services, IT support and light industrial industries. With the addition of healthcare, Delta can now provide recruitment opportunities for highly skilled hospital administrators, doctors, nurses and personal care professionals.
“Delta’s expansion marks an important transformation for the company,” said the owner, Teresa Lawrence. “Our growth is not only in response to the nation’s need to fill positions in the healthcare industry but Delta’s on-going commitment to put skilled workers in good paying jobs.”
The agency has already made one major step towards positioning itself to attract healthcare clients and job seekers. Last month, Delta hired Arthur Simmons as the new senior talent acquisitions manager with a focus on healthcare. Simmons brings more than 10 years of talent acquisitions experience to the company. After four years with MSI International in a similar role, Simmons is well-positioned to hit the ground running as a full-cycle recruiter.
“Delta has afforded me the chance to integrate my vision for healthcare recruitment with their business expansion strategy,” said Simmons. “This is a great opportunity to help the agency build something new and venture into a rapidly growing sector.”
According to data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, in 2016, the healthcare industry created more jobs than any other sector, adding 35,000 jobs per month. Louisiana, alone, saw a jump in healthcare employment, a trend
many economists predict will continue over the next 10 years.
