To be successful when recruiting Caregivers you need to be able to sell your agency to your candidates. What if you’re not the only one who should be selling, though? Our research shows 87% of Caregivers would be more interested in working for your agency if they had a chance meet and interact with current members of the Caregiving staff.
By allowing potential Caregivers to meet current teammates, it gives them a chance to see not only their future co-workers, but also what kind of team your agency has assembled. Adding this to your Caregiver recruitment allows the Caregivers to assess if they feel like they would thrive within your culture and environment. It might also help them figure out if they aren’t the right fit sooner rather than later.
A good recommendation from one of your current Caregivers can go a long way in home care recruitment. Often times a potential candidate is more likely to believe a fellow Caregiver or CNA than a recruiter or owner. We’ve seen agencies hiring Caregivers more effectively after bringing their current care team into the process.
Finding ways to connect current staff with future staff can help improve your CNA recruitment by leading to more of the right hires for your agency.
