March 2022 Bulletin - News and Updates
Here's a Webinar You Won't Want to Miss - and it's FREE for LinkedUp Members!

Workforce turnover in long-term care settings was a growing crisis even before the pandemic, and COVID-19 only accelerated the troubling trend

Join The Green House Project and two of its partner organizations for a deep dive into the strategies that have helped them find and keep top talent.

Brio Living Services in Michigan will discuss the organization’s significant bonus retention program, the shared decision-making process that was used to develop it, and the results several months into the effort. In addition, leaders from Chelsea Jewish Lifecare in Massachusetts will share how it managed to avoid using any agency staff during the COVID-19 pandemic.
