Caregiver retention begins with recruiting
The average caregiver costs $2,600 to replace. It’s worth taking the time to find qualified candidates that truly want the job. Caregiver retention begins with the recruitment process.
The recruitment process is the first interaction that the agency has with future employees and the first opportunity to leave a positive impression. Optimal recruiting processes are pivotal to ensuring the agency has a talented network of caregivers that will stay with the agency.
Consider revamping the application process. Removing barriers from the application process can help widen the applicant pool. Some home care businesses find it successful to conduct recruiting processes out of house. Using professional recruiters helps weed out prospects in an efficient manner, and allows the agency to focus on providing quality care.
