Boomerang Hiring: How to Manage Your Staffing During Economic Upheaval

For home care agency owners trying to navigate the challenges of COVID-19, understanding how to manage rapid changes in hiring and rehiring is key. While the crisis is unlikely to go away completely until a vaccine is found, many agencies anticipate a coming surge in demand for home care services.

In the 2008 financial crisis, many industries with staffing models similar to home care relied on what has come to be called ‘boomerang hiring’–recruiting strategies adapted to rapidly hire or re-hire a large volume of employees.

In this webinar we’ll discuss:

  • The principles of boomerang hiring: how to bounce back from staffing challenges posed by COVID-19

  • How business leaders have handled staffing challenges during other periods of economic upheaval

  • What your agency can do to keep your recruitment pipelines full in the event of a surge in demand for home care services
