It's Time to be Different
Connecting great people to work should not be difficult
Public Sector Care
Skills for Care have highlighted key recruitment/employment facts in the Adult Social Care workforce, such as:
- 6.8% of roles in adult social care were vacant in 2020/21. This is equivalent to 105,000 vacancies being advertised on an average day.
- The staff turnover rate of directly employed staff working in the adult social care sector was 28.5% in 2020/21. This equates to approximately 410,000 people leaving their jobs over the course of the year. Most leavers don’t leave the sector. Around 63% of jobs were recruited from other roles within the sector.
- Our forecasts show that if the adult social care workforce grows proportionally to the projected number of people aged 65 and over in the population between 2020 and 2035, an increase of 29% (490,000 extra jobs) would be required by 2035.
- Since March 2021, the opening up of the wider economy has been reported by employers to be adversely affecting retention, with many reporting that recruitment and retention is now more difficult than before the pandemic.
So how can these stats be improved? It would seem that now is the time for change in the way we recruit, train and retain people in the care sector, Labour Xchange has created an industry specific platform called “Care Xchange” which has the ability to provide this, click to find out more below.
Health Service and Integrated Care
As health systems and social care become further integrated it will become increasingly apparent the one resource all provides share is extremely finite and limited, their STAFF.
One of the unspoken realities of all care provision is that although there is an all time high demand for staff, often existing members of staff maybe under utilised and though they would like to work more hours they are unable to.
The Care Xchange “staff share” platform enables participating Local authorities and Health providers to facilitate the sharing of spare staffing capacity among all commissioned providers.
As the platform can hold all staff documentation centrally, we are able to seamlessly facilitate all providers in an area sharing existing staff capacity to provide maximum care coverage.
This can ensure care staff reach their desired earning potential and additional resources are created and implemented for the community.
