TAMPA, Fla. (April 25, 2019)—myCNAjobs.com, a professional caregiver network, announces the release of The Caregiver Trend Report: Disconnected, a comprehensive collection of data and trends for caregiving professionals.
“Seventy-three percent of homecare agency owners are extremely concerned about recruitment and 61% report turning down a case due to lack of staff within the past 30 days,” says Brandi Kurtyka, CEO of Tampa-based myCNAjobs.
The state of the industry report provides valuable insight to help homecare leaders better understand caregiver motivations and how job search has changed over the past 12 months.
The report examines what’s most important in evaluating a company, job offer, pay, benefits and more.
Data was collected across multiple studies including a caregiver survey conducted in January 2019, a homecare study representing 463 homecare providers, and a pay analysis of millions of caregivers nationwide.
Key areas explored include:
- Wage data
- Review frequency
- Mentorship and training programs
- Processing impact
- Reasons caregivers join and leave a company
“There’s a growing disconnect between how agencies and caregivers think about work,” adds Kurtyka. “The management of this disconnect is what will separate average agencies from high-performing industry leaders.”
