Two Pre-Screening Tools for Hiring Caregivers (Choose Home Care or Facilities)

Why is Caregiver Turnover So High? Most senior care agencies who hire direct care workers need people—and they need them NOW. That leads to hiring anyone (or everyone) who shows an interest and can make it to the interview. But not everyone is cut out for this work. Hiring the wrong people over and over just leads to a revolving door of new hires who come on board, try it out–and then quit!

This screening tool serves two purposes:

1. It lets potential candidates know exactly what they’re getting into.

2. It allows you to assess how applicants may deal with the common challenges associated with being a caregiver.

It’s time for another installment of our series, 5 E-Learning Myths—Busted with Caregiver Training Advisor, Cassie Grimm!

 

ICYMI

Today, she’s busting myth #5!

 

E-Learning Myth #5: It’s Boring!

 

While a well-designed e-learning course is interesting and engaging, we understand where this myth comes from. During your search for a caregiver training solution, you’ve probably encountered stale PowerPoint slides packaged together and passed off as “e-learning.” But the good news is, not all E-learning courses are created equally!

At IntheKnow, our online learning modules are built by professional instructional designers. Our team uses cutting edge-technology to create highly interactive and immersive curriculum that any demographic of caregiver can enjoy. Specifically, three factors make our courses stand out amongst the crowd:

 

1. Interactive Visuals

 

The problem with many online training programs is the delivery. Purely reading-intensive courses can be tedious, and don’t encourage retention. In fact, studies show that learners only remember 10% of written information three days after the initial delivery. However, when the text is accompanied with a relevant image or video, learners remember about 65% of the information. Our solution? Interactive visuals.

Throughout our modules, learners will discover clickable images and symbols that populate additional info. All text is accompanied with a corresponding visual. For example, in our Nutrition for the Elderly module, caregivers are encouraged to click on the images below to learn more about musculoskeletal changes.

 

e-learning with interactive visuals

 

2. A Healthy Dose of Video Content

 

To break up the reading, we have video content peppered in throughout our modules as well. This is especially important in courses such as “How Wounds Heal and How You Can Help,” where visuals and physical demonstrations are key. Other videos are more light-hearted and entertaining, such as “100 Years of Dinner,” which highlights different meals that have been served in home care over the last century.

The mix of interactive reading prompts and video content will keep your caregivers immersed and help them absorb information better than traditional learning methods.

 

3. Gamification

 

As learners make their way through IntheKnow’s e-learning courses, they encounter checkpoints. These often take the form of gamified activities, such as our drag-and-drop “Shopping for Mrs. Tate” checkpoint.

At the end of the Special Nutrients section in “Nutrition for the Elderly,” learners must consider the following scenario: During Mrs. Tate’s routine physical, her doctor suggested she increase her calcium intake. As her nurse aide, we need to drag the two items with the most calcium to the shopping bag and click “submit.” Then, we’ll receive immediate feedback and, once we get the answer correct, move on with the module.

 

e-learning gamification

 

Not only are these activities engaging, but they also ensure learners are paying attention and understanding the course materials along the way.

Although some online training programs are just plain boring, IntheKnow’s e-learning courses are interactive, engaging, and fun. But don’t just take our word for it, see for yourself! Download our free course preview, or get in touch with one of our Caregiver Training Advisors to schedule a demo. We look forward to showing you a better training solution that your caregivers will love.

5 Ways to Supervise Across Five Generations https://www.knowingmore.com/2018/08/06/5-ways-to-supervise-across-five-generations/ https://www.knowingmore.com/2018/08/06/5-ways-to-supervise-across-five-generations/#respond Mon, 06 Aug 2018 10:00:45 +0000 https://www.knowingmore.com/?p=5368 We live in a world where the workforce now spans FIVE GENERATIONS.

The post 5 Ways to Supervise Across Five Generations appeared first on In The Know.

We live in a world where the workforce now spans FIVE GENERATIONS.

This is a phenomenon never seen before in history.

 

Your team could potentially be made up of:

  • 70-year-olds, the “Silent Generation” (born 1925 to 1945).
  • 50 and 60-year-olds, the “Baby Boomers” (born 1946 to 1964).
  • 40-year-olds, “Generation X” (born 1965 to 1979).
  • 30-year-olds, “Millennials” (born 1980 to late 1990s).
  • 20-year-olds, “Centennials” (born late 1990’s to 2010s).

 

What Do the “Generation Experts” Say?

Hundreds of books, articles, and studies have been published on this topic. They all scream that managers must know each generation’s “style,” and be ready to accommodate all their “quirks.”

The experts carefully lay out charts and tables that place each generation into tidy little boxes.

 

You’ve probably heard these stereotypes:

  • Baby Boomers are workaholics and tend to micro-manage others.
  • Gen X’rs are pessimistic and depressed. They don’t respond well to authority.
  • Millennials are self-centered and surgically glued to their mobile devices.

There’s no doubt, the way you manage your 20-year-old employee will be different from the way you manage a 70-year-old worker. But those differences should NOT be based on stereotypes like these!

 

Should Your Workplace Change for All These Generations?

The short answer is “yes.”

But, your workplace does not need to accommodate every “quirk” and “whim” associated with the different generations. It simply needs to become more RESPONSIVE to the needs of EACH individual on your team.

 

Peter Cappelli, coauthor of Managing the Older Worker says,

“Don’t assume people need special treatment and “don’t dwell on differences.
There’s a lot of variation,” he says. “Get to know each person individually.”

 

And, Jessica Kriegel from Monster.com says,

“Working effectively with inter-generational colleagues means giving
each individual—not his or her label—due respect.”

 

So, How Do You Manage a Team with 5 Generations?

You manage people, not titles.  Remember, the trick is to be responsive to the needs of each person on your team.

Here are 5 ways to meet the needs of five generations:

 

1. Promote a Work-Life Balance

Having multiple generations in the workplace has taught us that we are really not so different after all. The desire for a work-life balance is a prime example.

AARP’s research found that Baby Boomers were willing to defer retirement if their employer offered fewer hours on a less rigid schedule. Millennials and Gen Xrs have grown to expect work flexibility.

The most successful companies offer (and promote for recruitment) flexibility and choice in scheduling, hours, and requests for time off. When they do, they find all generations became happier, more productive, and more loyal to their company.

 

Caregiver orientation plan.2. Generations Can Mentor Each Other

Start a mentoring program that matches older, more seasoned workers with younger staff. Encourage mentors to role-model advanced skills, work ethic, and healthy ways to manage the emotional toll caregiving can take on a new employee.

Then, flip it around! When you roll out your new EMR, e-learning, or other tech-based program, have your younger employees become the mentors to the older staff.

Learn how to start a mentoring program in: “A Framework for a Fantastic Orientation.”

 

3. Address Multiple Learning Styles

Learning styles can vary widely from person to person—regardless of generation. That’s why the most responsive option is to offer training in a Blended Learning format. A blended learning plan is a strategy that uses a combination of traditional classroom training with online learning.

Some of your staff will be traditional learners. They enjoy classroom learning where they can interact with their peers and supervisor. Others are more self-directed and prefer online courses that they can do on their own time.

 

4. Keep Employees Engaged

Build a More Connected and Engaged Caregiver TeamKeeping a team of caregivers plugged in and engaged can be difficult! Provide plenty of opportunities to interact—whether it’s online or in real life. Here are a few ideas:

  • Offer regular, live training opportunities.
  • Hold a career advice workshop. Address career advancement opportunities for younger workers. Invite an expert from your community to talk about retirement planning for older workers.
  • Run a Yearly Skills Fair. Have groups of 3 to 4 caregivers work together to create each of the “challenges.”
  • Create a multi-generational task force to solve a problem in your organization. One employer created a task force like this to test different online training platforms before deciding which to choose.
  • Use a fun, online recognition program, such as Bonus.ly to create a culture of recognition by empowering everyone to recognize and reward their peers and supervisors.

Get more ideas for keeping your team connected in: “5 Ways to Build a More Connected and Engaged Caregiver Team.”

 

5. Promote from Within

Every team has a few go-getters! But, these high achievers (at any age) won’t stay with you very long if they see no opportunity for advancement at your company. Create opportunities for caregivers to receive advanced training that meets the needs of the population you serve. Or, advance your most empowered employees to take on more responsibility in teaching or mentoring new hires.

This year, IntheKnow is proud to celebrate 20 years of excellence in caregiver training!

 

Being in business for 20 years has taught us many lessons.

But, most importantly, we’ve learned how to help you grow your business!

In honor of our 20th anniversary, here are 20 things we learned over the years
that have helped organizations like yours train, engage and RETAIN their caregivers!

 

 

1. Your caregivers WANT and NEED quality training.

Without training, 81% of your caregivers will quit within three months of being hired. Assigning a caregiver to care for a client for whom they have little or no training, places the caregiver at risk for stress and injury. This risk is what drives many caregivers to quit. It’s more important than ever to make sure your caregivers have the training they need.

 

Caregiver orientation plan.2. It starts with a fantastic orientation.

Harvard business school says, “The first few minutes of new employee orientation, if done right, can lead to happier and more productive workers. Unfortunately, a lot of companies do it wrong.” The good news: There are a couple of easy things you you can do to avoid the most common orientation pitfalls! Download A Framework for a Fantastic Orientation. This report shows you the 4 most common mistakes organizations make during orientation. And, gives you plenty of practical tips to avoid making them yourself.

 

3. You must have a plan in place.

The late, great Yogi Berra said, “If you don’t know where you are going, you’ll end up someplace else.” This is true of most things in life and business—but it’s especially true of your caregiver training program. Check out: A Step-By-Step Guide to Designing & Delivering A Dazzling Continuing Education Program to learn how to plan and prepare the most effective program that will meet the unique needs of the caregivers on your team.

 

4. A focus on training and development can improve your reputation.

Well-trained caregivers are more competent. And, competent caregivers provide a better client care experience. Better care leads to better outcomes—and better outcomes lead to more satisfied clients! Satisfied clients tell others and improve your reputation!

 

caregiver certification courses5. Certification can make ALL the difference!

Millions of non-medical home care workers across the U.S. provide personal care (bathing, feeding, dressing, grooming), companionship, housekeeping and transportation to our nation’s most vulnerable citizens—our elderly, disabled, and frail civilians and veterans. And they do it all with little or NO training. Read THIS BLOG article and PREVIEW a sample caregiver certification course.

 

6. Your clients deserve the best caregivers.

The most successful care providers know that an agency or facility is only as good as the caregivers it employs. Each caregiver you send out or assign to a client should be someone you would entrust your own family members’ care to.

 

Build a More Connected and Engaged Caregiver Team7. Well-trained caregivers are more engaged.

Studies show that improving employee engagement reduces staff turnover, improves productivity and increases client satisfaction. But more than that, engaged employees have a greater sense of purpose and are generally happier, both at work and at home. Happy employees who want to stay on your team means less turnover. Lower turnover stabilizes the care environment. And a stable care team makes HR and scheduling a breeze! Download: 5 Ways to Build a More Engaged and Connected Caregiver Team.

 

8. You can STAND OUT in your market by offering caregiver specialists.

Specialized caregivers have advanced training in common conditions, such as Alzheimer’s disease, dementia, diabetes, heart disease, or even common mental health conditions. Having “specialists” on your team increases your credibility. Improved credibility sets you apart from the competition. Standing out as a specialist will increase your referrals! Read: Creating Advanced Roles for Caregiver Specialists.

 

9. If you want to RECRUIT and RETAIN quality caregivers, it’s time for a different approach.

Experts agree, it’s nearly impossible to make a living on a caregiver’s income. But, offering more money (or more hours) may not be an option for every employer. That means it’s time to start working WITH caregivers—the same way you work with clients—to identify services and additional funding sources to fill in the gaps. Read: 38 Ways to Motivate Your Caregiver Team for ideas such as; setting up a Health Savings Account (HSA) for your employees, partnering with a local daycare to offer tuition subsidies or back-up childcare, and setting up an “Uber for Business” account so emergency transportation is always available.

 

10. Talk about training to recruit top talent.

Our friends at myCNAjobs dove deep into the psyche of caregivers across the country to find out what makes them decide to take a job—and what makes them stay. They found that 71% of Caregivers say they must be learning to stay with a company. And 44% of workers cite a lack of training opportunities as the reason they left their last job. The most successful recruiters describe their training opportunities in every job ad. That helps them keep a fresh stack of applicants to choose from any time a need arises.

 

11. Make sure you’re hiring the RIGHT people.

Most senior care providers need people—and they need them NOW. That leads to hiring anyone (or everyone) who shows an interest and can make it to the interview. But not everyone is cut out for this work. That’s why SCREENING is so important! Read the blog, Caregiver Screening Tools for Facilities and Home Care and download your free screening tool today.

 

Sell Value of Price in Home Care12. Educate consumers by promoting value over price.

There’s no doubt that price is factored into any purchasing decision. In fact, the price of home care services is the number one concern for most family caregivers. But price alone will not seal the deal. Your clients want to know what VALUE (such as professionally prepared caregiver training) your agency offers that sets you apart from your competitors. Watch a replay of our webinar, How to Sell Value Over Price with guest speaker, Merrily Orsini from CoreCubed.

 

13. A peer mentor program can solve several challenges.

You go to great lengths to hire the right people. Keeping them is the problem! A peer mentor program can offer support, provide a competent role model for problem solving, clinical skills, and help caregivers handle the emotional aspects of care giving. HERE’S HOW to start a peer mentor program in your organization.

 

14. Well-trained caregivers reduce hospital admissions and re-admissions by knowing what’s “normal.”

Knowing what’s normal leads to early reporting and early intervention as soon as something abnormal is observed. Early intervention reduces hospitalizations. Reducing hospitalizations reduces risk and costs! Download: 5 Ready-To-Use Home Care Tools for Preventing Readmissions to the Hospital.

 

15. Professionally prepared employee training packs a powerful return on investment (ROI).

There’s a widespread myth that employee training offers no ROI. In fact, the average ROI for employee training is 24%.

*When calculating your ROI, be sure to include “benefits” such as more effective
caregiver recruitment, increased retention, improved client care
and client satisfaction, and increased referrals.

 

16. You can increase your ROI even MORE by reducing your training cost and increasing your benefits!

Spending an average of $49 per caregiver/per year for IntheKnow‘s unlimited, expertly prepared, mobile-friendly, interactive, and engaging caregiver training, leads to improved recruitment, retention, client care, and client satisfaction.

 

Measuring Client Satisfaction17. In senior care, happy clients are the KEY to success and profit.

Do you really KNOW how happy your clients are? You may already have a survey tool that measures your clients’ overall satisfaction with your organization. However, there are likely only one or two questions on it about the ACTUAL CARE your clients receive. Download: How to Measure Client Satisfaction in Your Caregivers to get an inside look into how your clients really feel about the care they receive from your organization. Then, take concrete steps toward improving your clients’ experiences, in response to their survey feedback.

 

18. Regular knowledge assessments keep everyone fresh and on their toes!

By far, the most popular downloads on our FREE Resources Page are the Caregiver Challenges! Supervisors use them to take a quick inventory of their team’s knowledge on important topics. They make it easy to identify knowledge gaps and plan caregiver training around filling those gaps. Caregivers look forward to the helpful reminders and practical tips they can begin using right away. Check out all of our Caregiver Challenges today!

 

People skills19. It takes more than technical skills to deliver EXTRAORDINARY care.

It takes People Skills! Did you know that 77% of employers think “people skills” are just as important as technical skills? Yet, only 31% of employers offer this type of training to their employees. Having good “People Skills” means your caregivers have empathy, self-awareness, flexibility, problems solving skills, time management skills, excellent communication and strong work ethics. Find out how to add “people skills” training into your caregiver training program by reading: Inspire Your Ordinary Team to Deliver Extraordinary Care.

 

20. Absenteeism is expensive.

The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) found that across all industries, the average absenteeism rate for all workers is just under 3%. The absenteeism rate for Caregivers (CNA, PCA, HHA, Aides, etc.) in Long Term Care Facilities and Home Care is closer to 10%. Find out how to reduce absenteeism in your organization with 44 Ways to Reduce Unplanned Caregiver Absences.

Mental health is a vital part of overall health. It affects how people think, feel, and behave. And even though our senior clients often “seem okay,” nearly 20 percent of people over age 60 suffer from some type of mental health issue, such as depression, anxiety, OCD, hoarding disorder, PTSD, bipolar disorder, or schizophrenia. Yet, less than 3 percent seek help for their problem. Give your caregivers the. Mental Health Challenge to increase their awareness of this growing problem!
