The event kicks off Tuesday, November 14 @ 10:30am ET.

The 2023 McKnight’s Workforce Development Forum is a must-attend event for anyone with employees. Period.

Attendees will be offered a series of webinars with practical, workable ideas to improve employee recruitment and retention. These battles won’t go away. The McKnight’s Workforce Development Forum is a way to keep up the good fight.

Participants will learn about the latest methods and research for what’s working and what might not be such a good idea. Also addressed will be which of the “old” approaches are still a good idea, and why. This is an outstanding event that all managers and hiring personnel in long-term care, senior living and home care should check out. One registration will enable attendees to take part in as many presentations as they wish.

"Modern careforce: What they're looking for and current trends"

The gap between the number of caregivers and open positions within our industry continues to widen, necessitating employers to implement competitive and appealing recruitment and retention strategies. Attendees will learn of study results culled from extensive collaboration with thousands of caregivers nationwide, revealing misconceptions about what management perceives as important to frontline caregivers versus what the careforce genuinely values. Come explore with us insights on ways to enrich your recruitment, retention, and engagement, as well as the results yielded by this original research.

During this webinar, you will:

  •  Uncover the potential of AI in workforce recruitment and retention.
  •  Gain a deeper understanding of where you can derive maximum value and engagement from your workforce as you build both traditional and non-traditional benefits programs.
  •  Discover how to create and sustain a robust careforce through third party staffing.
  •  Equip yourself to dispel the myths surrounding caregivers true preferences from their employers.
  • Explore insights on ways to enrich your recruitment, retention, and engagement, as well as the results yielded by this original research

Join us in this journey to bridge the gap and build stronger, more effective caregiver-employer relationships.

"The holidays are coming! Is your workforce plan in place?"

We are in the final two months of 2023 — how does your staffing spend look compared to budget?  Managing staffing costs is a challenge at any time of the year but it’s especially difficult during the high-demand months of November and December.  As we head into the holiday season, do you have a plan for scheduling your full-time staff and for controlling overtime and per-diem costs?

Attendees will learn how to:

  • Best manage staffing spend in the final 6 weeks of the year
