Boise franchisee Beehive Homes New Mexico is an ID-based Beehive Homes that addresses labor issues with an employee-first business model in 34 assisted living communities.
It seeks to create a positive experience for employees from day one, including personalized onboarding, daily employee communications, and a user-friendly platform that allows managers and staff members to connect and reschedule as needed. It means that
“When you’re going through this time when you’re really understaffed, you need to take a good look at what the employee experience is like and ask yourself, ‘Is that what we want to come back to? had. BeeHive New Mexico owner and operator Nathan Manning said: McKnight’s Business Daily.
According to him, this introspection led to discussions about what the onboarding and first day experience should be like for new staff members. It turned out to be more beneficial for new employees to spend their first day just getting to know the residents than forcing new employees to follow policies and procedures and assigning them simple tasks.
“On day one, instead of taking on cleaning duties and talking about the policy, you tell employees, ‘Your job today is to go around all the residents and get to know them. Let’s share and learn more about them,’ said Manning. It’s from.”
Additionally, as part of its employee-first business model, Beehive Homes New Mexico partnered with Toronto-based BookJane earlier this month. BookJane is an automated shift callout platform that allows managers to connect open and last minute shifts to employees, giving them flexibility. Accept shifts whenever and wherever you want.
“We are constantly striving to find better systems that improve the overall employee experience for each staff member,” said Manning. The employee said the new system was more user-friendly to him than the previous scheduling app the company used, he added.
“Our partnership with Beehive Homes New Mexico fits into the larger strategy they have in place. McKnight’s Business Dailycalls the Beehive initiative an “end-to-end employee strategy.”
A shift callout platform automates the process of filling shifts, eliminating the need for managers to make phone calls to find staff coverage, saving leaders time and stress, said Khan. According to BookJane, the platform reduces the administrative time required to fill shifts by up to 70%.
This technology gives staff members more flexibility in creating their schedules as they can notify all staff members at once via the app when needed. The platform also provides the ability for flex-her workers, such as retirees and former staff, to rejoin the workforce and work a few hours a week or as needed.
“The workforce has changed. It’s a lot different than it was a year ago. We had to be more flexible and give our employees more choice,” says Manning. “We don’t want to be an employer who is still juggling paper schedules and managers spending a lot of time filling shifts.”
