ELM Tree is a Toronto-based Not-for-Profit working to bolster industries in greatest need of support.

We help in areas of workplace, staffing and leadership development in the healthcare and long-term care sectors.
1. Leadership Development

Develop your leaders! Allow them to create a positive image and reputation of the organization as an employer of choice, as well as foster a work environment that attracts, engages, motivates, and retains talent. This can include developing an employer value proposition (EVP), communicating the organization’s vision, mission, values, and benefits to potential and current employees, and promoting a culture of learning, feedback, recognition, and inclusion.

During the height of the pandemic, several long-term care homes across the province reported critical staffing shortages – impacting the quality of resident care and employee safety.

2. Recruitment Pipeline Mapping 

Create a recruitment strategy. This involves estimating how many and what kind of employees will be needed in the future; based on the organization’s goals, staffing patterns, and people needs. This can include specifying the number, skills, qualifications, experience, and diversity of the desired staff. ELM Tree will work with the long-term care homes and hospitals to identify the staffing needs and design a sustainable plan to build the recruitment pipeline for a lasting staffing strategy.

“More than 100 surveys reported: staff do not have time to interact with residents, talk with them one-on-one, spend time with them to provide emotional support and basic care are not done frequently.”

3. Conduct Active Searches

ELM Tree will take a professional services approach to engage and consult with the home or hospital to initiate active searches to fill immediate roles. Identify staffing and people needs. Compare the current staff complement with the projected staffing needs and determine what kind of skillsets are needed to achieve the organization’s goals. This can include creating new roles, filling existing vacancies, redeploying or reskilling current employees, or outsourcing some tasks.

Ensuring a culturally diverse staff complement is important to address the needs of diversity in the homes while nurturing equity and diversity in the workforce.
