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.

Our workforce strengthening program for rural health and social care businesses is the answer you’ve been looking for and need!

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!

This is a close-knit group of health and social care business owners and executives who have prioritised workforce strengthening. To provide tailored workforce support to your specific organisations, Dr. Cosgrave has limited the group size intentionally. Each organisation can have up to two participants per program.

Entry occurs through an application process. Dr. Cosgrave will review your application and personally consult with you to determine if the program aligns with your organisation /business. A scheduled meeting with Dr. Cosgrave will help her better understand your business, workforce, and HR needs.

The bulk of the program is self-paced. Watch , read and do the homework when it works for you.

In addition to the program videos, there are a total of 5 x 1hr Ask Me Anything Calls with Dr Cosgrave which will be scheduled with you in the first week. There are also a total of 10 x 15 minute Check-ins held online on Thursdays over the 10 weeks from 09h45 to 10h00 AEST. And if you can’t make a session live you won’t be missing out; they’re all recorded and available to watch at your convenience.

Dr Cosgrave will consult with you at the beginning of the program to schedule the 5 fortnightly calls at a convenient time for both of you on either Tuesdays or Thursdays over the 10 weeks of the program. Recordings of these sessions and summary notes will be sent after each session.

This is an important part of the program where you can connect online with others, share ideas, and receive ongoing support over the 10-week program.

Check-ins happen online on Thursdays over the 10 weeks from 09h45 to 10h00 AEST

No worries! check-ins will be recorded for your convenience.

All participants in week 1 will complete a confidentiality agreement. Any shared information is strictly confidential and meant for program use only. Unauthorised sharing is prohibited and will result in removal from the program and loss of hub access. Your privacy is paramount to us.
