New appraisal software designed for the care sector


CareShield, the leading provider of workforce development solutions for the care sector has launched innovative software designed to take the pain out of appraisal management and allow care homes to provide supporting evidence of staff development to CQC.

During CQC visits, inspectors are looking for robust appraisal procedures and evidence that staff are being trained and developed to provide quality and sustainable care. With inconsistent, poor or no appraisal training, care homes are running the risk of failing in some KLOEs.

With this in mind, designed to sit within CareShield’s workforce development platform and support their eLearning programmes, the appraisal module allows businesses to conduct consistent appraisals across multiple locations and departments.

CareShield’s Chief Executive, Christian Greenshaw said “Our appraisal management module is an exciting addition to our suite of workforce development software. Our vision is to give businesses the tools to professionalise their workforce and ultimately deliver excellent care to their clients.

Our appraisal module will allow managers to link development needs identified during appraisals quickly and easily to training, keeping track of progress and identifying performance issues as they arise. Used alongside our competence management module, managers have a complete overview of all the training and development needs of their staff and can use this as supporting evidence to CQC.”
