Day 2 - Wednesday 5th June, 2019
Aged care providers are expected to provide quality care to consumers and this starts with those providing the care. Standard 7 of the New Aged Care Quality Standards stipulates that providers have a workforce that is sufficient, skilled and qualified, and this requires an organisations to improve their recruitment strategies. There is no denying that the workforce needs to grow, and requires both better quality and a greater quantity of workers. Hiring the right staff is crucial to avoid instances of elder abuse and to protect the vulnerable people providers care for.
This workshop will give delegates practical strategies that they can use in their recruitment practices to consolidate their workforces with diverse, well trained and caring workers. They will also learn how to attract and build value for potential employees outside aged care.
Attend & learn how to
- Market to different demographics of the workforce
- Tailor job advertisements to millenials
- Find good cultural fits at all levels of seniority
- Psychometric testing and other methods to determine aptitude for aged care
- Identify candidates with the practical and soft skills required for care work
- Utilise tools for attracting and retaining the best quality recruits
