Argentum and OnShift have unveiled a three-year corporate partnership focused on driving excellence in the senior living workforce.
OnShift and Argentum will work together on the development of data-driven research, innovative resources and best practices to give senior living providers new tools and insights to improve workforce strategies.
“Each day, senior living providers are faced with major workforce issues, including high employee turnover, fierce competition for talent and growing wage pressures,” said CEO Mark Woodka of Cleveland, Ohio-based OnShift, a leader in human capital management software for post-acute care and senior living. “OnShift’s partnership with Argentum is a significant step to helping the senior living industry move forward in overcoming workforce challenges. With a sound staffing and workforce strategy, senior living providers can experience better operational performance while delivering high quality care and service to residents, their families and loved ones.”
Addressing workforce development is a key imperative for Argentum. A strong workforce of qualified employees is essential for the senior living industry. The nation’s aging population is creating unprecedented demand for long-term care services in the near future. The industry will need to recruit 1.2 million new employees by 2025 and must continue to create attractive working environments and career paths.
