Opening Doors to the Aging Services Workforce
LeadingAge understands the urgency of your workforce needs. That’s why we expanded our Opening Doors to Aging Services initiative to explore potential employees’ perceptions of aging services and how best to talk to them about jobs in our sector.
New Workforce Recruitment Tools
LeadingAge research among potential employees finds positive perceptions of the sector, as well as broad openness to working with older adults. What’s needed to get potential employees to join your team? We’ve developed communications strategies, tested message themes and language, and identified the job attributes employees seek. And we’ve created profiles of potential employees by job category so you can craft your materials using the most effective language. Explore the resources on these pages and download the Workforce Recruitment Communications Toolkit.
