Every day while we’re speaking to people who contact us to use our values based recruitment tool we regularly hear that they are; “in the process of reviewing their recruitment procedures”.
As the statistics show, with up to 60,000 vacancies on any given day in the sector it is clear that finding and keeping quality people is a real problem for almost everyone.
Creating the ideal recruitment and retention strategy is a daunting task and we can but admire the people who are willing to say, ‘it’s broken let’s fix it’ and set to it in a focused and enthusiastic manner. However, thanks largely to the internet, there is so much information on potential best practice and new ideas it’s tricky to know where to start.
So we’re very pleased to see the latest resource from our friends at Skills for Care who have taken the whole kit and caboodle of learning and created a new resource called Finding and keeping workers, which officially launched this month. It’s a tremendous source of good advice and we’re recommending it to everyone to take a look at if you’re scratching your head on how to realign and revitalise what you’re doing.
