Self-selection questionnaire aims to reduce joiner attrition

Sunrise Senior Living UK and Gracewell Healthcare have launched a self-selection questionnaire for potential care workers.

Designed to assess whether a candidate’s values are right for a career in care, the questions are designed to allow people to ‘look in and see’ what a role in care at Sunrise and Gracewell is like, as well as the qualities they need to be successful. The aim of the questionnaire is to reduce attrition, especially within the first 90 days of joining.

Self-selection is used in a wide range of businesses and has been found to significantly reduce resignation rates and improve the performance and motivation of newly hired team members.  
Questions and candidate feedback include the following:

It’s essential that all of our team members aim for and meet [the highest standards of quality and safety]. How do you feel about this?

One answer option: I think that as long as the residents are comfortable, pushing for higher standards isn’t that important.

Sunrise Senior Living comment: Whilst the comfort of residents is very important to us, we think this can’t be achieved without a deep drive to always be improving and doing things better. Please bear this in mind if you’re considering applying with us.

The questionnaire is confidential and is designed to be used prior to the application process.
