COVID-19 and the Aged Care industry

The Aged Care industry has been heavily impacted by COVID-19. Examining the economic impact of the coronavirus on the Aged Care industry, a report by industry research company IBISWorld[1] indicates that the ‘residential aged care’ subdivision has faced the most significant disruption.

Employee sentiment towards vaccinations

ELMO’s quarterly Employee Sentiment Index revealed the proportion of workers uncomfortable working alongside unvaccinated colleagues in the Aged Care industry is 61%. In addition, vaccination passports have also been welcomed by 87% of aged care workers in Australia.

Wellbeing and safety

Wellbeing and safety form a critical part of the employee / employer relationship. Despite the disruption of the past 18 months, organisations need to continue operating without jeopardising the wellbeing and safety of their employees – that’s a fundamental employer responsibility.

This guide will take a look at the needs of aged care workers, and how to prioritise employee wellbeing and safety in the sector.
