New Workforce Recruitment Tool: Senior Living FastMatch
On April 8, 2020 by Jenna Kellerman
Argentum and the American Seniors Housing Association have announced a new resource to help workers who have been displaced due to the fallout from COVID-19 find new employment opportunities in senior living: Senior Living FastMatch. As our field expects to fill several hundred thousand positions in the next few months, you are invited to post your available opportunities through FastMatch at no cost through Sept. 30, 2020.
More than a traditional job board, the Senior Living FastMatch resource, hosted at the Senior Living Works website, uses artificial intelligence to evaluate the best fit for candidates and identifies the top jobs for them in their geographic region.
“Hospitality, restaurant, and retail workers are particularly impacted by the current crisis. Argentum has been working with the American Hotel & Lodging Association to help connect these workers with senior living,” said James Balda, President and CEO, Argentum. “This talent-matching tool provides the technology and opportunity to quickly help workers and providers connect in this emergency.”
The recruitment tool is powered by Arena, a leading software company that applies big data and predictive analytics to help companies make more successful hiring decisions.
In addition, OnShift, a human capital management software company for the senior living industry and Argentum’s partner for workforce development, created an expanded resource toolkit to help senior living organizations recruit and hire employees during this emergency. Recognizing that hiring for hourly careers generally happens locally, the toolkit includes social media messages, tailored job descriptions, and other materials to help recruit workers who have been laid off discover senior living.
