As a Senior Director here at myCNAjobs I have the pleasure of talking with agency owners and recruiters from all across the country. One of the biggest questions I hear is “What do you see happening in my market?” While there are trends and challenges that spread nationwide, it is true that each market is unique. While doing a webinar on Hiring CNAs in Los Angeles & Orange County, I picked out a few interesting pieces of information on L.A. and O.C. Caregiver recruitment.
Nearly 40% of the market is uncertified
39% of Caregivers Northeast Ohio are uncertified and looking for companion work. If your agency is only hiring STNAs for cases that could be handled by an uncertified worker, you may be cutting out a large portion of your market.
44% of Caregivers have less than 1 year of experience
An experienced Caregiver is always a great thing to have, but if you have a high experience requirement you may be missing out on a ton of great Caregivers and STNAs near you! We’ve seen lots of agencies develop training programs to capture new Caregivers and help them learn to be the best employees they can be!
More Caregivers are looking for full time work than part time work
It’s always tough to find the balance between Caregivers and clients, and making sure you have enough hours to offer your current staff. In Northeast Ohio we see 78% of Caregivers and STNAs interested in full time work, compared to 70% part time. What we can gain from this insight is that the ability offer Caregivers more hours can be seen as a big plus. If your agency can offer better or more desirable hours than a competitor, you may have an advantage in recruiting and retaining talent!
