How values-based recruiting keeps your best staff happy

Care homes will retain their best employees if they ensure the staff they recruit share their own values as a provider.

Values-based recruiting, which focuses on behaviours and morals rather than just skills and experience, is becoming increasingly important as providers aim to plug vacancies.

A survey by Skills For Care claimed that 72% of employers agreed that staff recruited for values perform better.

Reena Sidar, ceo at recruitment company Hirestaff, said providers needed to adapt their hiring process.

“The key is to ask interviewees to give real-life examples of behaviours in their previous roles or personal lives to demonstrate their values in action,” she said. “If behaviours and common values are understood, employers are more likely to find and keep a more engaged and committed workforce.”

She added that the common values identified include Integrity, Collaboration, Compassion and Commitment.

“The right staff will naturally know what it takes to deliver high-quality and supportive care in often challenging working conditions.”
