About 330Talent

Rob Rioux head shot

A message from Rob:

Like you, I love community health. Serving in a health center leadership role changed my life for the better.

I have been in your shoes and lived the problems you face. I have been through OSVs and Joint Commission surveys. And like you, I faced challenges in hiring good talent.

The Challenge of Acquiring Talent

Our health center did not have the HR resources with the capacity to manage the hiring we needed. We augmented their bandwidth by using the firms in the marketplace known to us all. They did good work, but their fees were high.

This bothered me for several reasons. One, I didn’t like spending money that could have otherwise gone into patient care. Secondly, I had a previous history in the recruiting business. It occurred to me that I could do something innovative to address this problem.

What I Did About It

I started 330Talent specifically to address the recruitment challenges faced by FQHCs, and to do it from the health center CEO point of view. My firm has the ability to not only find FQHC talent but to pre-qualify them.

When a candidate is “pre-qualified” it means they have been interviewed in-depth. I know what questions to ask and what follow-up questions to ask. We examine their history. We talk to our network and gain insights. And we put each candidate through our proprietary FQHC Readiness Assessment Tool, a tool I specifically created to assess candidates. Learn more about that tool here.

What This Means for You

330Talent has done the hard work for you. You can be assured we only put forward candidates we would have hired when running our health center.

You save time and money on the sourcing of candidates, pay much lower fees for recruiting, and provide relief to your Human Resources team.

Why You Can Place Your Trust in Us

  • We come from the FQHC world. We know this business. We’ve been in your shoes.
  • Our model saves you money. Our fee is not based on salary.
  • We are low risk. You only pay us if you hire the candidate we present.
