Ohio Chapter Conference Focused on Workforce Issues and Business Growth, OH DOH Forwards Update on License Applications
Last Tuesday, dozens of members of the Ohio Chapter met at Wesley Glenn Retirement Community, in Columbus, for the Ohio Chapter Conference to network, learn and build their home care businesses.
While officials from the State Health Department were unable to attend the meeting to update members on the progress of issuing licenses to home care agencies, they did send an update on where license applications stand today.
HCAOA is working with ODH to schedule another time for officials to speak with members. Any questions regarding the update should be forwarded to email@example.com no later than May 18.
At the Conference, three members shared their “best practices” on recruitment and retention of workers.
Jason Janoski, HomeHelpers; Amy Wylie, Colonial at Home; and Chapter Chair Aaron Stapleton, Trinity Home Care encouraged attendees to communicate with staff on a consistent basis, recognize good work, and be responsive if workers have questions or concerns.
Other speakers touched on, informative topics including Max Sulfin from Paradigm Senior Services, who presented on the VA Community Care Network and Shannon Patton, Esq. and Alex Frondorf, Esq. from Littler who provided an overview of top employment issues.
HCAOA CEO Vicki Hoak discussed federal legislative priorities and other national updates.
The meeting ended with Max McMahon and Justin Hillebrecht from ADP, who offered several solutions to improving retention and recruitment.
