Chicago, IL (PRWEB) November 09, 2012
Professional Caregiver and Certified Nursing Assistant (C.N.A.) shortages combined with high turnover rates are plaguing the senior care market and quickly gaining attention of owners and recruitment directors nationwide.
In a study conducted by the American Society for Healthcare Human Resources Administration, the cited average for vacancy and turn over were highest among the C.N.A. job group - compared with R.N.'s, Pharmacy Technicians, Imaging Technicians, and Lab Technicians.
Average vacancy rate at any given point in time was reported at 11%, a number that continues to sky rocket, while average turnover is a whopping 30%. These numbers coupled with the average time to fill a CNA position hovering around 40 days and the cost to recruit a single caregiver around $2,306 - including internal time and external costs - is forcing strategic minded professionals at senior home care agencies, nursing homes, and assisted living communities to take note.
"The costs and importance to recruit quickly and efficiently in this market have never been greater", says Brandi Kurtyka, Chief Marketing Officer.
"myCNAjobs was launched to solve this problem, driving down both the costs and time of caregiver recruitment for business owners nationwide," adds Kurtyka.
