Webinar - Senior Living Staffing: Challenges & Opportunities
Posted on March 17, 2022 by LeadingAge
Sodexo Seniors and McKnight's Senior Living are hosting a free webinar on the staffing challenges facing senior services on March 30 at noon (CT). Along with Sodexo Seniors CEO (Zeta Smith) and VP Human Resources (Jim Moran), Matt McNeill, Director of Senior Living at StuartCo and a LeadingAge Minnesota member, will be the featured presenters.
Across the country, more than 90% of senior living providers are facing staffing shortages. There are 23,000 open positions across the long-term care sector in Minnesota alone.
A national survey of more than 2,000 industry professionals shared their perspectives on the top workforce challenges and their insights into efforts to improve recruitment, retention and overall employee satisfaction. The results of the survey showed that across all demographics, staffing shortages (79%) were cited as the top workforce challenge, followed by finding and hiring job candidates (62%) and employee turnover (54%), both of which are contributing factors to the current staffing crisis.
This webinar will:
- Examine the overall effects of staffing shortages on residents and other staff members at senior living communities across the U.S.
- Address the specific challenges that communities face, given the increased turnover and difficulty finding qualified candidates during the ongoing pandemic.
- Discuss strategies and best practices that Sodexo Seniors provides to communities, including global expertise and ongoing high-quality staff training.
