How to Improve Engagement and Retention Among Agency Nurses

Agency Nurses

It’s difficult to deny the advantages of a fully engaged, satisfied workforce. Happy, satisfied workers will work for longer, take less time off and do a better job for your clients. High levels of engagement will help keep your clients happy, and reduce your turnover so you spend less time replacing staff. But how do you improve staff engagement when your staff are agency nurses, working at a client site?

Why healthcare recruiters might struggle to improve engagement

As a healthcare recruiter, you send your nursing staff to work in environments that you are not in control of. If those environments are challenging, either in terms of the working conditions or the staff culture, there is legitimately nothing you can do about it. You might be forgiven for thinking that the consequences you experience, in terms of high turnover and low staff morale, are likewise outside your control, but that’s where Orange Genie Healthcare can help.

How Orange Genie Healthcare can help

As a responsible employer, Orange Genie Healthcare are determined to be a positive force in our employees’ lives, which is why we created Orange Genie Edge, our amazing employee benefits platform.

Orange Genie Edge is designed to make a real difference to your nurses’ lives, with benefits and services that will make their money go further, help them care for themselves and their families and really get the most of their contracting career.

From your point of view, it helps to make your nurses feel valued and engaged, as well as improving their wellbeing and reducing the number of sick days.

Medical and support services

  • 24/7 GP appointments
  • Expert help accessing specialist care
  • Access to trained counsellors on a confidential helpline
  • Specialist support for carers

Our medical services are focussed on getting your nurses access to the care they need as quickly as possible, so they can recover and get back to work. Your nurses and their families can speak to a doctor at any time of the day or night, from anywhere in the world as long as they have access to a phone or internet connection, and our Medical Specialist service connects them with an expert who can help them arrange swift access to specialist care.

At the same time, our support services offer much-needed help at some of life’s hardest moments, giving your nurses unlimited, confidential access to trained counsellors at any time, and offering specialist advice and support to those caring for sick or elderly relatives.

Obviously, this will reduce the number of sick days you have to cover, but more importantly it demonstrates that your nurses are valued and their wellbeing is important, which has a significant effect on engagement.
