Employers everywhere are desperate to fill open positions, especially in the senior living community. With managers working the floor to cover missed shifts, companies need to think creatively to keep fully staffed.
The Problem at Scale – The Great Resignation
According to The New York Times, more than 4.4 million workers quit their jobs voluntarily in September of 2021, with the healthcare industry reporting as one of the highest rates of workers leaving.
Politico reports that more than half a million health care workers quit in August of 2021, the most in a single month in more than 20 years.
In a recent poll, The Washington Post found about 3 in 10 health care workers consider leaving the profession as a result of the COVID-19 Pandemic.
Another study, Future Forum, surveyed thousands of workers and managers across the globe on a quarterly basis, asking a series of questions around productivity, sense of belonging and preferred ways of working.
The survey found that 57 percent of workers are open to looking for a new job in the next year. That number is even higher, at 71 percent, for those workers who feel as though they aren’t satisfied with the level of flexibility they have in their current role.
This new data demonstrates the need for a retention plan in communities, but also the need to adjust hiring strategies.
