Have You The Right Staff Delivering Person Centred Care?

There are many challenges facing the care sector, funding, compliance, and restrictions to the built environment, but the biggest challenge is without doubt recruiting and retaining the right people with the right values for the role.

The Kings Fund reports that two trends in ageing are likely to drive a significant amount of future demand for care services:

  1. The demographic ‘bulge’ of people – the baby boomer generation – born in the 20 or so years after the second world war, who are now reaching retirement in the first decades of the 21st century
  2. The increased longevity of that population, with life expectancy at birth now 79.2 years for men and 82.9 years for women (Office for National Statistics (ONS) 2018a). Despite the recent slowdown in improvements in mortality rates, the ONS predicts that life expectancy will continue to rise, though at a slower rate than previously. *1

As a consequence of this dramatic increase in anticipated demand we are sure to see an increase in care roles within the social care sector. In fact the Department of Health already has a national recruitment campaign underway. Called Every Day is Different (EDID) the campaign is now in its second year and a sure sign that the government is taking the role of caring now and in the future very seriously.

With this in mind you can begin to see how competition for staff will grow. But how can you compete with this and still be sure you are recruiting the right people with the right values for your business?

You need to get your recruitment process absolutely right otherwise you will fail to attract the right people.

Getting recruitment right is the foundation for finding the right people with the right values, and if you can do this well your business will benefit from improved employee retention, lower training costs, ability to grow your business, and ability to improve your CQC rating.

There are many more benefits, but your ability to deliver outstanding, quality care, to the people you serve has to be the number one outcome, and that can only be achieved by employing the right people.
