OnShift recently conducted a survey to better understand the critical workforce issues in senior care during the COVID-19 pandemic. Over 2,000 senior care professionals shared their perspectives on top workforce challenges facing the industry today, including the impact, outlook and potential solutions.
 
During the webinar we'll review the results of our latest Workforce 360 survey as it applies to senior living providers, including how the challenges have changed due to the COVID-19 crisis.
 
Session attendees will walk away with new ideas and solutions for recruiting, hiring, engaging, developing and retaining staff in this new way of life. They will have a greater understanding of how to take the solutions to a practical level and apply them within their organization as next steps. And, they will be inspired by the real-world examples, data-driven research, and proven, measurable improvements to help overcome some of their most significant workforce challenges during the COVID-19 crisis and beyond.
 
We’ll review:

  • Top workforce challenges facing senior living providers and employees today
  • Organizational impact & outlook of current workforce struggles
  • Perks & programs providers are implementing to help reduce employee burnout and improve the lives of their employees
