Comments Off on Finders, Keepers: new and improved version

This recruitment and retention toolkit is a practical resource designed to help care providers – particularly smaller organisations – to improve the way they recruit staff and keep them on board. The guide emphasises the importance of planning your approach to recruitment and retention.

This updated version of Finders Keepers aims to help providers to improve their own plans and activities by providing information and advice over four themes:

  • attract more people to your organisation
  • take on the right people
  • foster talent and increase skills
  • keep you staff.

The toolkit is illustrated with case studies, which provide lots of ideas for improving recruitment and retention strategies.

To download the toolkit visit www.skillsforcare.org.uk/recruitment or email marketing@skillsforcare.org.uk to request a printed copy.
