Retain by Pinnacle is simple software that helps you keep your senior care employees engaged and on the job. Retain collects employee surveys, flags potential separations, and prompts managers to check in with employees. Since research shows that employee turnover in senior living is highest in the first 100 days of work, the software particularly targets new hires.
In addition to prompting managers to check in with employees, Retain showcases a simple dashboard that encourages managers to congratulate employees on birthdays and work anniversaries. Exit surveys and annual employee engagement surveys round out the picture.
Retain is remarkably effective at reducing turnover, especially in the first 100 days when the risk is highest. When employees complete just one survey, their likelihood of separation drops by up to 65%.
Since it costs $4,000 to hire and train an employee, any reduction in turnover leads to drastic savings.
In the first 100 days after hire, the post-acute care sector loses 40% of staff. That’s why Retain zeros in on engaging employees in their first three months on the job.
Busy frontline managers can’t afford to spend hours of their day preventing turnover, but they know how essential it is. To keep it simple, Retain emails them bite-size tasks such as reading a survey, following up on a comment, or celebrating a 100-day mark.
