Business Continuity – Staff cover

Yesterday, we highlighted the need to ensure you have a robust Continuity Plan in place and that it is fit for purpose; especially during the winter months.

One area we encouraged you to consider is that of staff sickness and the impact this could have on your ability to cover all of your care calls.

Recruitment is vital to the stability of your business, so please remember you can use the Norfolk Care Careers website to advertise all of your vacancies at no extra charge.  For example, you can post vacancies looking specifically for workers for temporary periods of time and/or to cover particular times of the day and/or locations; all of which will help you increase your work force where and when you most need it over the winter period.
