July 08, 2015 // Franchising.com // SUNRISE, FL - The national trend of needing more healthcare professionals which is a result of the aging population and a shift in workforce trends, has led Interim HealthCare offices to place an increased emphasis on recruitment, retention and engagement.
Interim HealthCare Inc., a national network of home care, hospice and health staffing franchises founded in 1966 and known for its continuum of care, has more than 300 locations across the country which are actively looking for hundreds of individuals who have a caring heart and the skills needed to support the growing number of individuals who need the kind of support and care each office provides.
“Often the need for helping people remain independent in their home or recover from an illness or injury far outweighs the number of available caregivers,” said Kathleen Gilmartin, President and CEO of Interim HealthCare Inc. “Our Franchisees employ nurses, therapists, aides, companions and other healthcare professionals who provide 25 million hours of home care service to 190,000 people each year. That means we continuously need employees so recruiting is a top priority.”
One of the benefits Interim HealthCare offices provide is flexible work schedules based upon the individual needs and circumstances of the caregiver. In addition, the company offers an online Learning Management System (Interim HealthCare University) with more than 300 continuing education courses and in-service modules. Employees can access the courses at no cost when they join a local Interim HealthCare franchise office.
In addition to regular recruitment efforts, some of the Interim HealthCare franchise offices also focus on recruiting older adults. The company has a Retired to Hire Program for older adults who are looking to add extra income and provide companionship and supportive services.
