2020 December Your Words

Your Words Responses for December

What is an innovative process your organization has employed for staff recruitment or retention during the pandemic?

For recruitment, we have done a couple virtual job fairs through Indeed. We have done some zoom meeting interviews as well.

For retention, we have partnered with We Care Connect to do Onboarding surveys. We are able to address concerns quickly, preventing someone from possibly leaving. We have also shown our appreciation through bonuses, gifts and special treats. One treat that was very popular was a local Coffee truck came out and served specialty coffees and teas!!

Reminding supervisors that simple, sincere thank you’ s go a long way as well. Not really innovative, just a reminder of the basics.

For the recruitment area we have employed many virtual events and instituted a same day offer on the interview day. If we like them we offer and do not wait to compare with other candidates. We are also cutting down the time of offer to stat day as much as we can. This sometimes means doing on demand orientations rather then the large group presentations.
