What do they want?
To successfully recruit (and retain) caregivers - we have to know what they want.
Here's a hint: it's not money!! Here is what they really want...
There’s no doubt that you need caregivers.
But here's the thing.
They don't want more money.
You might be thinking:
“What? No way!”
“Are you serious?”
“What do I mean?”
The truth is, caregivers don't want more money.
They want what money can buy them. Agreed?
The same thing goes with you. You don't want more money.
You want what money can buy you. Car, home, food, freedom.
So, we need to understand that each particular caregiver wants something different in what they're doing with their money.
And so when we understand what it is that they want, we can then better attract and help them to achieve their goals..
More money is not always the answer.
They want the tools and resources so that they can achieve their goals.
It's not just about that dollar amount.
You have to be different! But how?
We conclude our 3 part series with Aaron Osgood as he shares the key steps to differentiating yourself from other agencies in your territory during this caregiver shortage.
You might be wondering how you can stand out in a crowded market with so many people and high demand, but such a limited supply?
How you set yourself apart is a way of saying that we want you to have more impact as a caregiver. We're also going to reward you with pay.
It's simple, but that is literally it.
One approach to recruiting that a lot of people talk about, but a lot of people don't always do, is rehiring people that previously worked for your company.
When you go and rehire those past caregivers, you need to have a competitive advantage that you're...

When it comes to your business, you will always hear that social media is an amazing tool not to be missed.

Well, let me tell you this. That's not going to help you. That's not going to get results!
