Why Use Nutmeg For Your Candidate Searches?

We Get Results.

95% of the candidates Nutmeg has placed are still employed with our clients after one year. 90% are still employed after four years. With statistics like that, you don’t need a fancy ROI spreadsheet to tell you that our services make good business sense. 


"I have been an HR leader in healthcare for over 15 years and worked with many search firms. I can count on 1 hand the search firms that I consider quality in my definition. Of that short list, there is only 1 firm, Nutmeg Healthcare that truly represents an extension of  the HR Department."

We Get Paid When We Succeed.

We Get Paid When We Succeed.

Our Performance Search recruitment model is Nutmeg’s answer to those organizations that need the right candidates in specific critical roles but want more control over the recruiting process and the fee. Conceptualized as a cross between traditional Contingency Search and Retained Search options, Performance Search includes Nutmeg’s most critical search services, marketing, and consulting offerings but on a more well-defined fee structure based on clearly defined production results. If Nutmeg cannot fill the role using the Performance Model, your organization only pays for the market research and analysis -- the same information that will serve as decision support for appropriate next steps in the search. There is no way to lose.

We’re Professionals Too.

Unlike many of our competitors, every consultant at Nutmeg is a professional. Each consultant brings a level of sophistication, insight, and meaningful life experience that is difficult to match individually, but working as a team is impossible. That results in a deeper professional candidate pool, with each individual candidate appropriately motivated by your organization’s merits and the opportunity itself rather than a group of loosely relevant job seekers.

We Only Do Healthcare.

When faced with a serious medical condition, most people entrust their care to a true “specialist” for a simple reason. Choosing a person whose daily focus, interactions, and exposure revolves around solving your challenges greatly increases your chance of a positive result. It’s no different in healthcare recruitment. At Nutmeg, healthcare recruiting is all we do, and it’s all we’ve ever done. We are the “specialists.”

We Listen.

Understanding and addressing a candidate’s personal and professional priorities during the interview process is critical to conveying the true merit and value of the opportunity to that candidate. Nutmeg’s own interview and vetting process will often reveal what is most important in a candidate’s decision-making process. That information will allow your team to prepare appropriately for the interview process. When employers take the time to carefully overview those aspects of an opportunity that are most critical to a prospective hire, first-choice candidates often become successful hires.

We Facilitate.

Nutmeg manages interview logistics so that candidates move through the interview process quickly. Our process diligence decreases the potential for an intervening circumstance that might eliminate the candidate from contention (i.e., a competitor’s offer) and increases the chances of making a first-choice hire.

We Educate.

Some of the best clinical candidates, and even some wonderful administrative candidates, can be fairly inexperienced regarding the finer points of interviewing and the career transition process. We take the time to educate our candidates throughout the process so that a candidate’s related emotional considerations do not cloud reasoned judgment and the candidate’s transition to your organization is smooth and far less stressful for everyone.
