Staffing a Child Care Business During The Great Resignation

Several days before writing this email I received a Email from my Human Resource specialist. She asked me if I needed any assistance and I responded, yes! We need mote staff!

She replied, “This has been a very difficult year for most of our clients. In fact it has been hard to staff during this great Resignation.” That email also included suggestions to help lower turnover rate:

  1. Pay a competitive salary
  2. Do exit interviews to assess why staff are leaving

After reading that email, I decided to do some research on the term: Great Resignation and I found this forbes article and here is a quote from this article:

“This Great Reshuffling caused salary demands to explode, leaving many smaller companies struggling to fill roles. Current unemployment rates are near an all-time low of 3.8%, but in February 2022, there were over eleven million unfilled positions in the U.S., the largest number ever recorded.

For any hiring manager or recruiter not armed with FAANG-sized compensation budgets, this period has been a challenge. And although it may seem like the “Great Resignation” is still roaring ahead, there are several massive shifts happening under the surface that I believe will turn the Great Resignation around.”

So as you can clearly see the big picture, it is vital that you as an employer stay creative during this time and pay close attention to the needs of your employees. Moreover, strive to create an work environment that supports the needs of your staff.

Has your Child Care Business seen a high Resignation rate? If so, How has it affected your business?

The Monday Memo

Back in 2003 when I opened my First Child Care Center, I bought a book titled: Child Care Center Management. It was a great book and it was filled with forms and great center management ideas.

There is one business management tip that I received from the book and I still implement that practice today and it is: The Monday Memo!

Every Monday, my center Directors issue a Monday memo to the staff. The purpose of the memo is to inform the staff on our goals for the week and to remind the staff of upcoming events.

Also, Our Monday memos remind the staff of important quality care practices and we share team building quotes.

If you manage a team of 3 or more employees, I challenge you to consider issuing a Monday Memo every Monday. Its a great way to consistently communicate with your team!

How do you communicate with your staff every week? Please share….

Have a Great Business Week!
