Staffing challenges across nursing, home care, and LTC linked to a shortage of qualified staff
The ongoing pandemic has placed an unprecedented burden on our front-line heroes, yielding concerning outcomes. The rampant burnout experienced by these dedicated professionals has led to a significant exodus from the industry, intensifying the battle for top talent and driving salaries upwards.
Discover how we can help you overcome these staffing challenges and ensure the highest level of care for your patients.
A better way to attract talent has arrived
Benefi allows companies to acquire and retain the best talent on the market, all while reducing churn costs.
We do so by issuing and managing a new kind of signing and retention bonus, putting more money in the hands of employees, and de-risking the investment for employers.
You might already be issuing signing bonuses.
Here's why you need Benefi:
By the numbers:
Track and manage signing bonuses better than ever before
It's a pain to administer your bonuses on an excel sheet. It's time consuming for your admin staff, and if they're being honest, it's easy to forget if someone has left the organization.
This means hundreds of thousands of dollars of unearned bonuses walks out the door every year.
Focus on the strategic aspects of your business - not administration
If your team is honest, they'd rather not spend valuable time managing, tracking, and trying to collect on outstanding debts owed by ex-employees. There's a lot of other time-sensitive tasks they'd rather focus on
Great fiscal responsibility and management
Even in situations where your team remembers to ask for a signing bonus back if an employee leaves early, you have no recourse if the ex-employee decides not to repay the obligation.
It's generally not worth it to pursue these debts in small claims court individually - but collectively, these losses can be substantial.
Ensure compliance with labor laws
If you want to be able to deduct signing bonuses from other wages owing to the departing employee, you will need to document the bonus as forgivable “loan” to comply with Employment Standards restrictions on deductions from wages.
Chances are you aren't doing this, due to the complexities of managing this process.
