Chicago, IL (PRWEB) January 09, 2014
myCNAjobs, a HealthcareResearch.org company, has just unveiled the latest edition of its quarterly study analyzing the work preferences of professional caregivers and nurse aides - Q1 2014 Caregiver Trend Report - Retention Edition.
The study outlines the top 5 homecare companies where male and female caregivers want to work from surveying thousands of professional caregivers. Additionally, the study uncovers key retention factors, shedding some light on the differences between what’s important in the workplace to males versus females.
“Job stability and learning opportunities were reported as the most important retention factors for males while job stability and the hours/shifts available were the biggest driver for women,” comments Brandi Kurtyka, Chief Executive Officer of Chicago-based myCNAjobs.
Unlike most workplace-related awards, which require companies to self-nominate, the study relied solely on self-reported responses from caregivers who anonymously provided feedback through a survey.
“In a market plagued by high turnover and little loyalty, being recognized as a top employment destination for caregivers is a big deal,” adds Kurtyka. “The companies on the list are being honored as it’s a reflection of their commitment to caregivers and delivering a positive caregiver working experience.”
