Always Best Care Unveils New Program for Improved Hiring at 4th International Conference
Roseville, CA (July 27, 2015) – Always Best Care® Senior Services unveiled a new program to help franchisees improve their hiring processes and decisions at its 4th International Conference in San Antonio, Texas. With nearly 200 franchisees, area representatives, vendors and employees gathered at this year’s Conference, the senior care company introduced a new partnership with leading platform Hireology which is providing franchisees with a variety of tools designed to streamline the process for hiring and retaining quality caregivers and employees.
Always Best Care is one of the nation’s leading providers of non-medical in-home care, assisted living placement services and skilled home health care. The company delivers its services through an international network of more than 200 independently owned and operated franchise territories throughout the United States and Canada.
“We are very pleased to be working with Hireology to launch this new program,” said David Caesar, Vice President of Franchise Operations for Always Best Care. “Labor is the #1 cost for most businesses so these new tools and training will be instrumental in helping our owners continue to attract the best caregivers for our clients and make their hiring practices as cost efficient as possible.”
Before going “live” with the new program, added Caesar, Always Best Care and Hireology are providing thorough and comprehensive advance training and preparation to franchisees, including:
- 1 on 1 Training
- Service Levels, Upgrade Options
- Introductory Webinar
- Follow-up Training Webinar
The new program was unveiled at the Conference in a presentation given by Nate Adams, Franchise Brand Manager for Hireology, and Ella Himmelrich, Account Manager for Hireology.
“Seventy-five percent of franchisees report trouble with hiring,” said Adams. “Selecting your team is one of the most critical decisions and yet most businesses are bad at it.”
The main topics covered by Adams and Himmelrich include:
- Using metrics and process to make better hiring decisions
- Building the best possible company through hiring and selection
- How to decrease turnover rates: structured interview scripts; automated background checking capability; receiving, storing and accessing resumes from any location; etc.
- The hard and soft costs of bad hiring decisions, including: training, recruiting, taxes, lost opportunities, productivity and morale
- Application assessment and job board
- Data driven decisions
Hireology was fully vetted by Always Best Care’s National Advertising Fund Committee and the Implementation Committee prior to launch. For more information on the Hireology program please contact David Caesar at [email protected] or Ella Himmelrich at [email protected]
