How to attract, recruit and maintain a dedicated skilled and loyal workforce in the health sector (Aged Care)
This seminar is based on research from a recent royal commission report into the aged care sector and a workforce strategy that followed. The strategy outlined a number of skill gaps across the aged care sector, including a significant lack of management & leadership knowledge and skills. This was identified across all levels of staff, including management and supervisors. Based on the workforce strategy, I have put together an educational seminar. The seminar includes a lot of practical ideas and ‘How To’ methods. The purpose of the seminar is to develop and build knowledge and skills of people working across the aged care sector.
