Introducing the

Wondering if This Program is for You?


Ask Yourself the Following Questions…

Am I struggling to find the right-fit candidates for my business or my team?

It’s frustrating when you put out ads, but the results aren’t what you hoped for. You sense there’s something missing – something that’s not quite clicking – when it comes to attracting health professionals to join your organisation.

Are my staff burning out due to constant employee shortages?

We understand how tough it is when your team is stretched thin. Your staff’s well-being matters, and you worry that the exhaustion might push them to leave. Extra shifts and running services with too few hands can lead to burnout and dissatisfaction.

Am I losing hope of ever being fully staffed?

We get it… It’s disheartening when it feels like you’re stuck in a cycle of unrewarding recruitment with no end in sight. The thought of always scrambling to fill positions, without the chance to enhance your services, can be discouraging.

Is Staff Turnover Impacting Your Team's Morale and Efficiency?

High turnover can create a ripple effect, impacting team morale and operational efficiency. If you’re noticing a pattern of valuable employees leaving, it’s time to ask why. Is it the work environment, lack of growth opportunities, or something else? Is it something you can address or not ? Understanding the root causes of turnover is crucial for creating a more stable and satisfied workforce.

Imagine Getting Results Like These From The Program...

I would highly recommend this program to other organisations

Thanks to Cath I now have a clearer understanding of methods to utilise in order to attract and recruit new staff. I would highly recommend this program to other organisations as I believe it could truly transform their recruitment process and enable them to hire the right staff.



helped me think about how recruitment has changed

Cath really helped me think about how recruitment has changed and how it is an employees market now. We need to recruit differently to how things were done in the past. But we also need to recruit specifically who we are looking for. The program also identified areas in our (organisation’s) onboarding and general processes that we need to address to make recruitment and retainment viable.



Thank you Cath!

The Attract, Stay, Connect program helped us to take a deeper look at our recruitment and induction processes. This identified some areas that we need to put further work into in order to support our org in having more effective outcomes in recruiting and retaining staff. Thank you Cath!



A Couple More Question to Ask Yourself…

How Much Is My Service Losing By Not Transforming Our Workforce?

Think About It:
  • How many clients am I turning away or not serving properly due to understaffing?

  • How often do I struggle with finding suitable candidates, leading to repeated job advertisements?

  • How much is the low staff count affecting my current employees’ job satisfaction and causing them to leave?

When you crunch the numbers, these factors can add up to TENS of THOUSANDS of dollars per recruitment, and HUNDREDS of THOUSANDS in annual costs!
