Benefits for Care Professionals
Membership in the Care Professional Community
Apex Care Professionals value the peer group they join when they are accepted into our program. They begin in a cohort while still in Germany and then join their local Apex community when they match with a family. In addition to monthly meet-ups in person, they also gain access to a unique community portal to help create a sense of belonging, support, motivation, inspiration, and the exchange of ideas to foster job joy.
Educational & Therapeutic Resources
Our Apex Academy provides tailored candidate preparation including Mindset and Skills Coaching in the Apex Standards of Service Excellence & Core Competencies. Our Educational & Therapeutic Resources team provides ongoing 1:1 coaching as well as workshops for continuing education. Our focus on educational support is one of the reasons we can attract candidates with skilled backgrounds and experience.
Premium Health Insurance
Our European Care Professionals have fully funded premium travel and health insurance policies, protecting them in case of illness or injury. This is an important benefit for our Care Professionals, mirroring the comprehensive health insurance coverage they are familiar with in their home country.
Personalized Coaching for Excellence
Our low ACD to placement ratio allows for personalized attention to promote job satisfaction and personal growth, which results in better outcomes for our families. The ACD provides individualized feedback, advice, and mentorship to help the caregiver grow and improve in their role.
Apex Social Career Center
Our Career Center provides ongoing career coaching to all Apex Care Professionals, helping them connect their work in your home with their long-term career goals. Career coaching includes resume support and personalized job placement in their home country when their placement is complete. This provides a sense of security that our candidates need in order to make the leap to go abroad after graduating from a degree program, knowing that Apex will support them to get a strong job placement in their career field when they return home.
Annual Surf Outing
Our Annual Surf Outing is a legacy event that promotes caregiver retention and satisfaction. It also provides an opportunity for recognition and appreciation for your Care Professional. Your Care Professional will receive 50% off their registration for this event.
Kudos Recognition Platform
Every family aspires for their Care Professional to not just do their job, but to find joy and fulfillment in their daily tasks. Apex Social’s Kudos is designed to make the process of recognizing and appreciating their extraordinary efforts as intuitive and impactful as possible.
