In a recent survey we undertook, over 80% of those who responded told us that their greatest challenge as a home care agency was recruiting staff. We know that recruitment can be difficult so we've done the legwork for you. We've spoken with experts, compiled research and created useful articles, eBooks and webinars to help you.

Before you start hiring carers, there are a few things you'll need to consider. The following articles will help you to get the right carer recruitment process in place so you start out on the right foot.
Making sure you hire only the best candidates means having a robust interview process in place. Take a look at our guides to carer interviews and values based recruitment to make sure you get it right.
Onboarding and retention is perhaps one of the most important parts of successful care recruitment, but it's so often overlooked. Take a look at our articles on retention and tips for onboarding, below.
Even on a good day, being a carer has its challenges. To make life easier for your team, make sure you use the right digital tools to streamline their day and ease their workload. Adopting digital processes, including record-keeping and eMAR, can eliminate the need for paper trails and help free up the carer’s time so they can deliver the outstanding care your clients deserve. Using digital systems in this way shows candidates that you value their time and do all you can to reduce workload where possible.
