HYDERABAD, India, Sept. 21, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Certif-ID International GmbH has signed an overarching agreement with the Apollo Hospitals Group to source, train and upskill nurses in India to support the growing skills shortages in Germany and the wider developed world.
The global shortage of healthcare professionals has grown exponentially over the past years, fueled by the challenges of COVID-19. In Germany alone, there is a gap of over 40,000 nurses, which is expected to increase consistently.
In partnership, Certif-ID and Apollo are developing internationally recognised talent, supported by the use of technology to minimise the barriers to international recruitment. This includes digital document storage, verifiable credentials, video interview technologies, and other features. This combination of top talent and digital solutions breaks down barriers to recruitment and minimises the effort and risk for employers. The agreement commits to sourcing over 500 candidates per year.
With a network of over 50,000 qualified nurses and training centers that qualify over 4,000 nurses annually, Apollo is the leading provider of healthcare talent in India. Apollo utilises Certif-ID’s digital credentialing platform to issue verifiable credentials to nurses. These credentials feed into Certif-ID’s technical talent platform, ‘TalentSure’, powered by blockchain and AI, that connects, verifies and supports candidates to differentiate themselves.
Dr Sangita Reddy, Managing Director, Apollo Hospitals Group, said, “The Apollo Group believes strongly in the Government’s Skill India mission and Skilling India for the World. Our Chairman, Dr Pratap C Reddy, is a strong advocate of Global workforce development and believes India would continue to be the most trusted Healthcare workforce supplier in the World.
