E47 – Addressing the Staffing Crisis by Design

The senior-living industry is facing a staffing crisis. Over the next decade, a surge in the aging population will create unprecedented demand for residential care. Meanwhile, many providers report difficulty attracting new employees and retaining those they have. This need will require the senior-living providers to rethink how they appeal to a new generation of employees.

This presentation will demonstrate how a thoughtfully designed community can foster an employee friendly culture, help attach employees to a sense of purpose and strengthen collaboration, and how using technology and design thinking can make the job less stressful and more rewarding.
