Target market forecast
Potential Customers growth
The profile for AHSA's customers consists of the following, demographic, geographic and behavior factors.
The target city of AHSA would geographically be the Chicago city having a population of 2,695,598 (Bureau, 2000)
The area requiring the services of healthcare recruitment agencies lies in a radius of 75 miles.
The total number of hospitals and health care centers in Chicago is 75 (directory, 2010)
The typical hospital has 100 -- 150 nurses
In the metropolitan area there are 50 hospitals and medical centers
In the suburban area there are 25 hospitals and medical centers
Pertaining to the ongoing competition, the hospitals and medical centers have learned the fact that firms specializing in the recruitment services can do a better job of bringing the best individual for the job compared to their own HR departments. There is a recognition that every company has its own specialty and the healthcare centre cannot specialize itself in such services.
54% of the healthcare centers are rapidly growing this has increased the workload to much higher levels incapable of being handled by the human resources departments within their own centers hence arising a need for outsourcing the HR searches. (Mattoon, 2007)
Desire to hire the best possible person, the most professional and skilled; recognizing that investment into human resource is a valuable asset that pays off well in the logger run.
AHSA is providing the Chicago city with a sophisticated, effective, health care staffing agency with a vast network in the metropolitan as well as the suburban area. Allied Health care staffing agency would provide for the following needs of the customers:
Efficient pace of service: often hospitals and medical centers cannot recognize their hiring need s until it is quite late. Hence an efficient hiring agency that immediately provides the right wanted candidate is highly appreciated.
Precision: the capability to precisely local the right person with the right skills and requirements as provided by the healthcare centers.
Customer Service: regular feedbacks to check satisfaction level and availability to the customer always from any sort of query.
According to the recent analysis by the government a total of 89,890 registered nurses in Chicago (bureau of labor statistics, may2010) (statistics U. b., 2010)
The customer of the AHSA would primarily be the hospitals, the neighborhood medical centers, Adult care facilities, clinics, and rehabilitation centers in the metro as well as suburban areas seeking individuals to hire in their centers. And secondarily would be the registered nurses belonging to all medical Specialties, Practical Nurses that are licensed also called LPNs, Nursing Assistants that are certified also called CNAs and Specialists from the allied health sciences. These professionals would be hired both from the area of the metro city as well as the suburbs.
AHSA specializes in providing a qualified and experienced service of recruiting to not just medical institutes in the suburban area of the city but also to the metro area hence providing a broader horizon of cliental.

This increase in demand on the side of the employers has eased the recruitment agencies in providing the job seekers with the right qualifications a variety of job options to choose from. This competition within the employers leaves them with fewer options and hence the employer side of customers of AHSA would be willing to invest more into the company so as to yield best set of professionals from the competitive market.
