Retaining good employees is an integral part of delivering clinical healthcare. Continuity of support staff can be crucial to delivering consistent, trustworthy and high-quality support for the people in your care.
Employees who receive role-specific training become more valuable to an organisation and will feel valued in return, encouraging them to be more productive and engaged at work.
The new expertise and knowledge they gain from continuing personal development opportunities will enable them to work with enhanced dedication, care and skill – providing your service users with an improved experience in your setting.
Providing your clinical healthcare team with opportunities to develop their skillset is essential for staff retention in today’s competitive job market. Recent research has found that 94% of employees would stay at a company longer if it invested in their learning and development*.
By offering your workforce an opportunity to develop, they’ll grow in self-confidence and gain a greater sense of pride in their work. It also shows your employees that you respect and value the people who work for you and that you’re actively invested in their success.
This makes them more loyal and eager to contribute longer-term to a company that willingly nurtures their growth and progression.
Offering opportunities for both personal and career advancement is no longer seen as an optional benefit. It’s expected by today’s workforce, especially among younger generations.
Connect2Care’s apprenticeships can provide an ideal entry route for a variety of healthcare careers, such as nursing. They provide a fantastic springboard for those employees who may be lacking in academic qualifications, but are able to demonstrate a true commitment and enthusiasm for the role.
Highlighting the opportunity for training which can lead to further career progression can be truly inspiring to current employees, sparking an increased drive to excel in their current role.
