We turned our attention to the important topic of caregiver retention in this edition as the retention issues our clients are facing are going to worsen in 2014.
Chicago, IL (PRWEB) January 06, 2014
myCNAjobs, a HealthcareResearch.org Company, announces the release of the Q1 2014 Caregiver Trend Report- Retention Edition, shedding light on the motivations of professional caregivers and nurse aides to choose and stay on board with their employer.
The report is released at a time when homecare agencies, assisted living communities, and nursing homes are under increased pressure to retain their talent to meet demands of an aging population and New Year influx of clients and patients.
“The Q1 2014 report is centered on better understanding key caregiver drivers to equip employers with the insight and power needed to retain workers in an increasingly competitive marketplace”, says Brandi Kurtyka, CEO of Chicago-based myCNAjobs.
The research uncovers insight to better understand motivations for choosing caregiving as a profession, past career trends, how caregivers will react when homecare agencies are no longer able to offer the hours they desire in 2014, caregiver training, the top places caregivers want to work, and the differences between male and female retention influencers.
The portion of the studying focusing on homecare noted that if homecare agencies can't offer more hours in 2014:
- 38% will seek work at a hospital, long term care, or assisted living community
- 14% will seek multiple part time jobs outside of caregiving
- 9% will seek work outside of caregiving full time
"We turned our attention to the important topic of caregiver retention in this edition as the retention issues our clients are facing are going to worsen in 2014," says Kurtyka. "With an industry average of over 50% turnover in homecare and even higher percentages in long term care, the stakes of retaining a single worker are high."
The report also offers ten tips that an employer can easily put into place to better retain their workers moving forward.
The 16-page report is available free of charge to current clients, employers interested in a 7-day trial to myCNAjobs, or for a low fee. To download the report and learn more, visit Q1 2014 Caregiver Trend Report..
