In the last 45 days, we have observed a dramatic slow down in caregiver recruiting in home care. The leading companies in the industry are reporting major challenges finding caregivers. What’s happening? Why isn’t anyone applying to my job ads?
Our analysis of what’s going on helped us see “The Perfect Storm” of recruiting.
- Workers just received their IRS Tax refund check.
- Workers just received their Covid Stimulus Checks.
- The Federal add on to unemployment means workers are receiving up to $15.50 per hour to stay home
- Childcare is still a major problem for in-home caregivers who have children
While there is no short-term solution, we are working together with our Caregiver Quality Assurance Mastermind Members to identify specific actions you can take to attract more applicants.
To engage in a conversation about this major issue in home care, Join us on Thursday, May 13, 2021 at 2:00 pm Eastern for our next Caregiver Quality Assurance Town Hall. This is a web conference open to CQA Mastermind Members, Home Care CEO Mastermind Members, Leading Home Care Clients, and Home Care CEO Report newsletter subscribers.
