Recruitment in the Care Sector

The demand for skilled workers in the care industry continues to grow with more than 390,000 carers leaving their jobs every year, that's more than 1000 a day! We look at ways of ensuring you retain and attract the best staff in your area.

So how can you ensure that your care business is retaining your valued staff while also attracting the best staff in your area? The simple answer is you need to stand out from the crowd. One of the main reasons care staff leave their roles is due to feeling undervalued at the company, and there are plenty of ways managers can solve this.

Simple reward and recognition for outstanding work can go a long way towards making staff feel appreciated and valued, whether it be awarding staff with a bottle of something nice, chocolates or something else low cost. Employee wellbeing programmes also allow for staff to access discounts on high street brands, claim cash back on dental and therapy treatments as well as gain access to mental health and GP helplines. It’s a common misconception that these type of programmes are very expensive, however some programmes can cost as little as £3-£4 a month per employee, and can be equivalent to a large pay rise.

Not only do these type of programmes make staff feel more valued, but they also can reduce recruitment costs for your business, while improving staff loyalty, all leading to reduced staff turnover!
