Five of the ten toughest jobs to fill in 2018 come from the home-based care industry, according to CareerCast. Axxess, the fastest-growing home healthcare technology company, has examined the latest trends related to critical staffing shortages and spotlights innovative solutions in its new white paper, “Staffing Care in the Home: A Critical Need and Creative Solutions.”
“Agencies know firsthand that finding the staff members they need is a constant struggle,” said John Olajide, founder and CEO of Axxess. “This white paper helps them understand the factors contributing to the challenge, and showcases solutions that are working in healthcare right now.”
The Axxess white paper summarizes the most recent data and shares perspectives from industry leaders. The review features three key takeaways:
- Home-based care is in competition with non-healthcare industries to attract the employees.
- Millennials are 186 percent more likely to choose work in healthcare than previous generations.
- Companies willing to change their approach will be best prepared to meet care needs when older employees retire and more Americans require care in their home.
“Staffing Care in the Home: A Critical Need and Creative Solutions” details each of these points and highlights several innovative approaches that could be adapted to agencies and other home-based care organizations. Experts featured in this white paper agree that the best strategies incorporate an appeal to the millennials through flexible scheduling, prescheduled overtime and mobile staffing applications.
