Recruiting in a competitive environment
Initially, Tony liked the idea of giving flexible pay to nursery staff as a benefit, but also how this could help with retention. Retaining skilled and full-time staff is incredibly important for the business, as when an employee leaves a nursery, they usually take many little hearts with them.
“It’s the idea of staff retention and being able to give employees a reason to stay when there are so many job offers available. With Orka Pay, I can offer my staff something that other businesses can’t. That is such a big value add. That’s probably my favourite thing about it.”
According to a recent survey and article by The Guardian, in some nurseries, one adult can care for four children aged two. For children aged three and over (where a staff member has the appropriate qualifications), they can be responsible for 13 children. Needless to say, this is creating more strain on staff, causing more resignations and childcare costs to rise.
