Staff turnover is the biggest challenge for health and social care organisations, but do you know why your employees are leaving? What are your biggest retention risks? Using the WorkBuzz platform, you can gather real-time feedback through regular employee listening, identify where these triggers are hiding and address them before it’s too late. Our expert consultancy team will help you translate the feedback into positive change and keep hold of your caring workforce.
It’s likely a large proportion of your workforce are ‘deskless’, working on the frontline providing vital care services. If you already have an employee engagement survey in place, it can be a struggle to get good response rates. Many employee listening platforms rely on corporate email addresses to gather replies. The WorkBuzz platform has flexible survey delivery routes, offering easier access for your care workers and more informed data for your leadership teams.
A lot of caring roles involve physical, mental and emotional hazards. Stretched workforces often lead to slips in safety procedures – leading to a rise in accidents, lower CQC ratings, higher staff turnover and increased costs. WorkBuzz offers best practice questions focussing on health and wellbeing, alongside benchmarking from other health and social care organisations to understand your performance.
Are you struggling to fill your recruitment gaps? Have you considered your employer value proposition? WorkBuzz can give you regular insights from your existing workforce to help you identify areas for improvement and benchmark against your competitors to build a better culture and attract new candidates.
Do your frontline carers feel a connection to your organisational culture? In a sector that is so people focused, leadership is essential for driving a positive culture and it’s vital your employees feel a connection. WorkBuzz can help you listen to your employees, understand their concerns, gather data and empower change across the business.
We help put HR in the driver’s seat by linking employee engagement to organisational KPIs, so everyone gets behind your decisions.
