Recruiting a trustworthy caregiver is a time-consuming and frustrating process. Families have neither the time nor the experience to choose among candidates. Care homes invest precious time to screen many candidates until they find the right ones.
Expected Results and Impact
Project HEROES aims to create a recruitment platform for all ages that is easy to use and friendly, with a UX measurement score of at least 80. As one of the key objectives is to improve the quality of life of older people by engaging them in recruiting activities, we expect at least 5% increase in the quality of life of people using the platform (measured using, for ex. WHOQOL – BREF). Since the social impact is key, we aim to engage 75+ retirees, nurses and families during field trials in 5 separate communities. The pilots aim to have a balanced gender representation.
Finally, we will track the success of the recruitment process, aiming to have more than 80% recommendations accepted by recruiters and at least 30% promoters and not more than 30% detractors among recruiters.
