About Long-Term Care: Options to Consider
In just two years, the community reduced its turnover by 20 percent, increased resident satisfaction by 12 percent, increased resident referrals, and achieved 98 percent occupancy. Educating the future workforce is another key to survival.
Like it or not, the industry needs the millennials. This generation of employees will be attracted to a work environment where they can continue to learn, live, socialize, and connect. Simpson College, a private accredited school in Iowa, recently started offering a Health Services Leadership program. Taking a unique and proactive approach, the college formed an advisory board with a handful of companies that serve the industry in a variety of disciplines, including management, human resources, wellness, and healthcare.
In addition to the curriculum, the students have been exposed to the vast jobs the industry has to offer in areas such as business, finance, human resources, and marketing. Finally, you are not only selling to an audience of future residents, but also to those who will care for them.
Attracting top talent will require the same marketing efforts aimed at attracting new residents. The good news is the industry has a bright future. But it all depends on us thinking differently.
