I am working on a longer, detailed post about my hiring method, so it’s been a pretty quiet week for Care Camp. I’m hoping to have a new post in your inbox next week! 🎉
I wanted to ask - what’s your biggest hiring hang-up?
I know many childcare managers are having trouble getting enough candidates to interview. But there are many other places along the hiring pathway that we can get stuck. And this is constantly changing in each of our programs.
So, where are you stuck right now?
What can I and the Care Camp community help with? We’ll try to respond to comments with resources today, or if I don’t have the answers, I’ll add them to my list of things to research and write about.
Post a comment with where you’re stuck or just say hi 👋 and introduce yourself.
Hope you have a fabulous weekend!
We have been hit hard by COVID to where I was not able to give raises. We are slowly coming back but I am competing with all the government’s financial hand outs. How do I set a competitive salary to get someone interested which would mean increasing current staff (which they deserve) while working at 1/4 of our income.
The few that do show up for an interview then disappear after starting the CBC through HHS. Now I am getting all the way through an eligable to work letter and POOF no response. I am losing valuable time and possibly missing that recruit that really wants to work with these great kiddos. What is happening to ethics?!?! - Would it really be so hard to return a call or even a simple "never mind" text. :'-(
Please do give me a call when you are free...480~395~8411 Annette Collins
