|Other||ou will not have missed the Federal Government’s recent commitment to a significant wage increase for aged care workers. This is a major and long overdue step towards addressing current workforce shortages. |
But there is much more to the so-called “Great Resignation”, and its potential antidote, than just pay. To this degree, providers and their partners have significant power to influence the future aged care workforce.
On-the-job training opportunities, workforce culture, CALD staff onboarding, recruitment strategy, EVPs, and digital technology adoption are just some of the areas the providers can influence to create a more attractive and nurturing work environment across residential, home, and community care.
